Need VW TDI Engine

Our Beetle TDI has a hole in the block resulting from diesel runaway due to a leaking turbo oil seal. I've not had any luck locating a replacement engine with decent miles for a reasonable price. Thought it couldn't hurt to post it up, never know.

2002 Beetle GLS TDI 5spd manual

ALH engine code

EGR trans code

The ALH engine was used in several different years of Jetta, Golf and Beetle TDI's. I need a complete longblock with turbo included, several of the ones I've found have no turbos. Preferably less than 75k miles but at this point I'll consider any and all options.

Scott, I don't know if they have one or not but a few local guys have gotten engines from a company here called Pull-A-Part. You might try them.

They're a quarter mile from where I work if you need me to look at something or pick an engine up for you.

Ouch.

When I worked for Yanmar, we had a 315HP 6LP run away on the dyno. There's nothing like a 4+ liter diesel engine running wild at 7000 rpm.

Even the full emergency stop couldn't shut her down! Shut the dyno room doors and wait for the mess.............

sorry to hear your tdi got a boo-boo. You could've try and prevent runaway by keeping it in gear and stumping on the brake to stall it out in gear, thanks to manual tranny. But at this point could've should've doesn't work. Just curious, was there any signs of oil in the intake prior to this happening?
Also, why do you want to get engine with turbo attached? There are a few reliable souses in US that can get you stock vnt-15 or 17 if you want to upgrade and you will have brand new turbo vs some unknown unit.

Vehicle was in 2nd gear and the brakes couldn't overcome the torque of the engine running at full throttle. Only sign of oil consumption prior to meltdown was a mysterious diesel smell in the passenger compartment, but vehicle was not using oil.

I'm working with the TDI forum and have a good mechanic, appreciate the info!
