Audi a4 b7 1.9tdi

Post by ray112 » Wed Mar 07, 2018 10:59 am

My coworker is about to buy a4 b7 2005 year with 1.9 tdi 115hp engine in it. It's a high mileage car, nearly 200k on clock. How good are those 1.9 engines in b7? Probably not a bullet proof as 1.9 AWX/AFN. He couldn't tell me exact engine code, only that it's 1.9tdi. Any advice is welcome, thanks.

As long as it’s not BXE , that’s the one to avoid. They throw a con rod out the block.

BXE was transverse engine as far as I know, a4 will have longitudinal one, so Google says it must be BKE code, unless someone has changed something in past. Don't know even if fixings etc match transverse vs longitudinal. Anyway he was quite happy that it's not the one, which is dropping con rod.
