    well well well......another one bites the dust... *maybe*

    just starting to drive and i hear a very loud *BANG* and every light known to man starts blinking... loud rattling noise in time with the rpm's smell of gas coming from the engine bay... i pull over... pop the hood... 1,2,3 ... hmmm where is the 4th COIL!!!!!?!?!?!?!? infact where is the SPARK PLUG?!?!?!?!?!?!??! whole assembly blew out!... yup blew out...

    got a new coil and plug, but the plug wont catch as i suspected... totally stripped?!?! not looking good... not sure what other damage is there either...

    could be a simple re tap or use of a helicoil... or replace the head! and maybe more like maybe a bent rod? im expecting the worse...

    bwhahahahahah yeah ill do that next time and maybe just maybe you'll stand a chance LOL hehehehe...

    well the head is out... just as i predicted clean as a baby's bottom...

    gonna take it to a few shops maybe use a heli coil we'll see if not a think ive sourced out a used head that i can refurbish... by the way northvw did not have one?!?!?!?! damn with so many 1.8T's i figured this part would be a little easier to find......

    anyways ill keep everyone updated... but as for cause? not sure... gotta vag it... might be pre det? hydro lock? whatever it was it must ahve been big to blow out the plug right out of the socket?!?!?!?

    oh yeah found the original plug... very very far from the socket whole... damn i should have taken pictures... but i was so damn depressed to remember that doh

    maybe but the plugs have been in for about 40K Km's i dont think it would ahve taken that long to "blow out" if they weren't torqued properly...

    question is though... do i drop the gloves here and go nuts, port and polish new pistons blah blah blah blah.... and dump my idea of a RWD project?... or get this up and running and know that my RWD project will probably be delayed for 1/2 a year?!?!?

    So what's the situation? Is the engine toast? Or did the plug just blow out?

    I wouldn't port and polish, i mean, no one has proven that does dick shit for these 1.8T's, they flow pretty well.

    If you did blow it, just get new rods and pistsons, and possibly valves. If the rod bent you'll probably have to bore it out, or sleve it.

    Most guys with rods, pistons and valves consider the motor "built"... and can push like 500hp.

    update... well the re-tapped work and it looks like eveyrthing else in the motor was good...

    cause? could be a mistake on my part when i last changed the sparkplugs 40K km's ago... it looks like i must have cross threaded it and it eventually just gave away... there are no significant codes that signalled anything else happened...

    found out i need a new pump relay though... and looks like my starter motor is begining to go gotta love VW's....
