Just bought a 1.4TDI 90 with 117 K
What sort of life expectancy has this engine ?
I have seen some advertised with 150K plus .

Engine is effectively the same as the 75 TDIs and there are plenty on here with 200K+. Beware of DMF noises and turbo issues though these are not common causes of engine destruction (both have been known to take out the engine). My 90 is on similar mileage, getting a little noise from the DMF on idle.

Some would say yours has not run in.

Some TDI90's high up the list in the first post here....

I am sure many members here would agree that 100K miles for a TDI engine is really nothing. Properly serviced and maintained will go to 300K miles easily....

Understand that it is a PD engine the same as my A4 tdi PD 130 bhp 1.9 but obviously that has 4cylinders.
So the 1.4 has electro magnetic injectors and associated wires running in oil ?

That cars got grit :)

I’m glad it’s still going strong
I’ve started to daily it as it warm in the winter which my 90 is not. Have started putting 2 stroke in it and has made a huge difference. Kind of feel sorry for it, think I’ll run it till it goes pop
