  13. MK1 Rabbit Engine
    Got a VW diesel pickup and it has a 1.9 diesel engine from Germany in it. Would this be an AAZ engine? Not a turbocharged engine. I am in need of a water pump, timing belt and tensioner - since I have to replace the water pump might as well do the others as well. What else will I need to do the...
