Hi folks,

Not lr related but a friend of mine has a vw toureg its a manual and the engine blew. He bought a replacement engine out of an auto and the vw dealer is saying he cant fit an engine that came out of an auto into a manual. Is this total bs. The toureg is a 2006 2.5td thanks for any advice

An auto gearbox doesn't have a flywheel (the torque converter does that). You would on a lot of engines have to swap the flywheel housing, but it might not be removeable and is part of the engine block and this would mean that you can't fit it. Other things, such as differences in the block casting for things such as linkages, differences in exhaust mounting, and starter motor locations might also be different.

There *could* well be some significant and problematic differences: sump/bottom-of-engine closure, DMF, crankshaft where the torque-converter/DMF mounts to it, crank-position-sensor (if operated from the flywheel/torque-converter), the oil-system, even the vibration-damper on the nose of the crank.
