2.5tdi engine hesitation. Injector needed
« on: October 30, 2011, 07:36:17 am »
My AKE engine has developed a nasty hesitation under load. 550 code keeps reappearing. That could mean a number of things.
The current prime suspect is #3 injector, the one with a wire coming out of it, the needle sensor. The problem is that this only MIGHT be the problem and I don't especially want to fork out $$$ on a 'might'.
So does anyone have a motor in bits that I can buy (or borrow) the #3 injector from. While we are at it the MAS measures OK but it might be worth swapping out too.

Well it turns out I have worn camshafts and, to cut a long story short, another engine is the best option.
So do you know of any? Mines an AKE 180hp.
You said Platinum had done one, Where are they, Auckland?

so it then means your AKE TDI motor also has what they refer to as the chocolate camshaft then I guess.

No idea why they call it that, but the 150hp TDI motors on the mk4's,Seats,Skoda's etc. All have the failing camshaft issue.
As GTI has posted, try Platinum and go from there. You possibly could be lucky going to AA wreckers.

Sam just thinking I have a set of wheels to go back to Auckland so if you find an engine we could coordinate a van run.
