Yeah, factory fitted but the compressor that came with the car got spoilt at some point, so I replaced it which also got knocked last week, I also replaced Drier, replaced Evaporator then.

Shoddy work. Would have been covered by warranty with us.

The manufacturer didn't put an ac in a car that couldn't handle it. Something else is wrong. The AC was made to go in that car as-is.

I can't wait to bring my car over.

I have owned this car for 6 years and it has really served me well over the years but the engine is weak, started emitting smoke, so sometimes in March, I had it ringed, I'm still not comfortable with the job done.

I'm ready to change the car to Tokumbo grade again. I have actually started and I've spent more than 400k on the car from March till now already.

It looks very good already but u want it scanned and get a new Toks engine that would make me enjoy the car till I can afford a new one.

I'm bringing it to Lagos, I don't wanna be scammed or given bad products, who can help me out, I was advised not to go to Ladipo or Itire on my own, I need a VW specialist who can handle my car and bring it back to life.

Here are pictures of the car I took last week.

Hoping to hearing from a good Samaritan.

Thanks.


Your car engine seem to be 1.4 16valve I.e aluminum block engine... If you want to enjoy your car without going through much stress look for a 1.6 16valve Engine I.e iron block engine and buy. Or you convert it to a 2.0 golf 4 engine (you will be needing a complete engine 2.0,brainbox ,complete wire,etc to do this.

If you have not fix your car yet contact me on 08163529294 for more info.

The factory fitted engine is 1.4L 16 valve.


Why do you advise that he replaces the engine with a different spec.?
Re: HELP!!! Golf 4 Engine Needed. by obekediamondfuto(m): 9:55am On Aug 21, 2018
it's a kazeem thing, u wouldn't understand till u start becoming one of them.....

they know the perfect engine sizes for ur car... *which are never factory spec*

esp when you complain about power.

my issue with them is not the fact that one can actually upgrade a cars engine(yankee guys do it all the time), it's the fact that they are strictly speaking from a "collect his money" point of view so the job is less than shabby.

Because he doesn't have the 1.4L engine, so he is trying to sell the engine he has in stock.

The 1.4L 16valve engine and the 1.6L 16valve engine are almost the same thing the only different between the two are the block engine .one is iron the other is aluminium

The "Yankee guys" have the technical knowledge, hence, can afford to swap engines correctly without ruining the optimal performance of the car.


Here in Nigeria, our "Kazeems" lack the expertise to do this. I have seen where a Golf Mark III engine was installed on a Mark IV. I have also seen where a different engine was installed on a Honda Accord and till date the owner is trying to raise money to buy another car because his Accord keeps draining his pocket.


We abuse cars here in Nigeria.

people of God, anytime u hear this from a mechanic.......

tell him ur mom just called and she needs u immediately......
pick ur car, go home and do some indepth research.....

99percent of the time....... it is a fat lie cooked up from the pit of hell.... when the time comes and u have purchased, u start hearing stuff like..... we need to call panel beater to arrange the engine bay and nut points, even the chassis needs to be shifted.... and all sorts... even rewire, vulcanizer, key cutter, brain box expert...... everyone will be involved just to make ur car start and u might be spending either ur house rent or ur tithe or even borrowed money.

12yrs + experience with kazeems and still going strong
be careful
grin

the learned ones, even tho it might be the same will not suggest an upgrade.....
if it's the same engine just engine block then y d upgrade, what's the HP difference? 1.4 and 1.6?
