I don't think that 300K is out of the question at all. 200K is very good
odds, even for a turbo car.
Hay, this can be fun! Paul and others-
how high of mileage on a ' 82 4000S DIESEL( the Audi/VW 1.6L 4L).
Which I was told was made by Audi for VW. I believe IMHO that 165K is
a start, which I have. But, what has others have or seen, for DIESELS.
BTW- Has anyone replaced their 1982 or newer oil pressure system. I
had the unfortunate experience with it going off at the engine shift
points. I changed the oil and that stopped it for a while, but after a week
the idiot light and buzzer would go off after the engine got warm. So, I
went to my VW dealer, No Audi dealer in Cedar Rapids, and Iowa City is
just far enough that I didn't want to push my car there, literally. The
dealer changed the oil again and found that the sensor was irregular.
They replaced it, and I have been okay for about 4 weeks now.
Anyhow happy traveling
