    Hi im new here.
    My 1.9 tdi has a problem.
    Every time you fire it up it rattles the tappets until the oil pressure builds up and it goes quiet.
    In its life its had issues with tappet failure and it has just worn through a black hardened set and damaged the camshaft.
    I thought it could be the valves in the oil filter housing not holding the oil in so fitted a new housing but no different.
    Anyone else think it could be the oil pump itsself causing the oil to drain back overnight?
    Plus if it is, are they easy to change?

    The mod is about to jump you for not posting an introduction in the new member introduction forum first.
    Anyhow can you tell us what year it is? Stock Cam? What oil you are using? Any CEL or VCDS indications?

    Why is that a problem?
    Am i expected to post in the new member forum first or something?
    The cars a 2003 asz. Completely standard. No fault codes. Pd oil changed regulary.
    Just took cam out and its knackered. 4 holed tappets and 4 dished.
    But it rattled with brand new tappets in last time and with a good cam so theres an underlying problem.

    Car: Bolf estate sport tdi why have you called it Bolf only because you have a Bora front end? Please use the proper vehicle make with the year? ;)

    My car is a golf estate 130 pd with a bora front end.
    My other car that has the rattle is a bora 130 pd with a golf front end.
    Just to confise matters more lol.
    The asz engine is the same though.
    I am trying this forum coz mkivs forum is full of people with alot of advice but not alot of knowledge.

    If you have a Golf and Bora put both cars in your profile there is room and spell them correctly.

    Jeez. Why so formal.
    I just want advice and offer my experiences with the pd.
    If i cant just come on here when i get free time and discuss the pd then just delete my account and i go elsewhere

    Have you measured the oil pressure with a direct reading gauge? And yes, listing your cars my year, model and engine codes is very helpful. I have no idea, (Make/Model/Year), what a "Bolf estate sport tdi" is.

    What about the issue i have?
    Ive just got hold of new oil pump kit and camshaft kit but if the problem is elsewhere then i would like to investigate whilst the engine is appart
