Re: To Rebuild or not to Rebuild that is the question

I agree with all here, that if there are issues with the motor rebuild it. I think if you can take apart an A4 you should be able to tackle this. A little more complicated but not much. But only worry about it if you have real trouble. compression test, and you might want to have the oil analyzed. (I have used Blackstone, they give a nice summery of the results but there are others) While it may not tell you much about if it is good, it will give you a baseline to start from to watch levels of metals and what not.
