Hi everyone,

I'm introducing my new car, it's a gen3 turbo, but at the moment the gearbox is stuck in gear and the engine didn't crank over yet. I noticed the IMOC stickers, so I thought it would be worthwhile to post it here in the hope somebody recognises the car.

I need lots of parts, so any help would be welcome!



Plans are

-rebuild engine
-check gearbox (shifter mechanism missing)
-repaint front
-rebuild Bilstein suspension
-put some nice rims on it
-...

Nice one.

Put your location up on your profile, there could be someone local to you that could help you out. No shortage of parts around here anyway.

Thanks!

I already found 1 of the former owners of this car of the IMOC

[Surprised]

At the moment the engine doesn't turn over, starter worked once when out of the car. But now it doesn't do that anymore, I don't know what could be wrong?

I'm assuming starter relay, but would seem strange as it worked once already

whilst having starter problems I'm left with 2 options why the engine doesn't crank:

-AM2 fuse broken ( will have to check)
-wiring failure

starter has been tested, just as the relay etc.

Soon the engine will come out for a full rebuild
