Cheap V6 K8 on ebay
Found this cheapy if anyone is after an engine for spares or replacement
£85 or offers !!! be quick there is 4 offers in on it already
something to ask about… first time ive heard an engine being tappity after warm up and not on startup
Condition> Starts from cold perfectly, once hot it goes a bit tappety. Could just do with a oil change? Revs up and drives fine.
I reckon if its full off old thick oil then the uplift pipe is full of crap and partially blocked its the only way it can get tappety when its warm, either that or some of the shims are a little warn out and in that case it may not be too much to worry about.
