I am thinking about buy a scirocco 16v It has a 2L conversion. When he was driving down the highway he said it started smoking and sputtering. it was oil cause it burned alot of it. what else could it be beside a headgasket? car starts runs and smokes.

16VS are very often fopud with bad valve guides and valve seals which are attached toe hte guides, my rocco had a head refurbish job. regrounds vavles, regrounds valve seats, and new guide fixedthed oil consumption issue. buthe oil issue was from the guides notthe valves or seats. but that was all that was done. not rings or anything like that

Re: Scirocco 16v headgasket or?? (freeflow90)

probably the headgasket.
if it has a 2L - you'll need the 9a headgasket (2L)
i'm guessing it wasn't burning the oil - but rather leaking it into your coolant.
check your oil - milky color - blown gasket.
check your coolant - darn brown water with oil - blown head gasket
if they are fine - check exhaist smoke colour.
white (and lots of it - blown gasket)
blue - burning oil
to see where you are burning oil from - do a leak down test. i'm getting tired of typing - so do a search on that.
