Hilton Head Volkswagen Repair!

Hilton Head Volkswagen Repair!

We have several big jobs going on in the shop this week; one of them is this 2002 VW Passat VR6 with both a blown head gasket and broken timing belt. In this case, it’s more cost effective in parts and labor to install another engine all together.

Since the new engine is out and all of it is so accessible, now is the time to do some preventive maintenance and half the cost. New valve cover gaskets, water pump, timing belt and tensioners will ensure this engine can go the distance.

The old engine comes out, and once tuned and inspected, the new one goes back in. We refill the engine with fresh oil and new coolant, replace any hoses and belts that are past their prime, and double check everything once again.

Though, this all could have been avoided by keeping up with basic maintenance along the way. Changing the timing belt on these Audi / VW engines is a downright necessity and could have saved thousands of dollars in repairs.

It’s always a tough decision when you have a catastrophic failure deciding whether to fix your vehicle or replace it. Many times, you could not replace the car with one of equal value for the cost of the repair.

Since 2003, we have specialized in the service and repairs of European Imports throughout the Beaufort / Hilton Head / Bluffton area.  We look forward to helping you with your vehicle’s needs.
