Hey guys,
Just about to sell my (M) 214 SLi in order to purchase a 220 GSi (M)

Just wondering if there are any known problems that occur with the 2.0 litre lump and if there is anything mechanically that i should look out for apart from the usual?

I know the 214 has common problems with the head gasket etc...


Any advice?

Think they leak oil out of the sump (all of them) but no issues with HGF.
Plenty of experts on the T series, its just a matter of time......

Seaping oil between the head and block on the front cambelt side of the engine is common, but as long as its just seaping then thats no problem. Head gaskets dont have any problems like with the K series.

If its a Turbo version then look out for thrashed gearboxes. I think the diffs can go on them.

The T series with mantainance is a very tough engine and should give you hundreds of thousands of miles.
