    Sorry to bump the thread but seems the most relevant one to post on without starting something new.

    I've just experienced failure of a BXE engine first hand on my 2009 golf estate. I've only had the car a couple of months, granted it has high miles of 140k but full service history, and now I really wish I'd done more homework on engine codes but hindsight is a wonderful thing.

    I experienced a loud tapping / banging noise from the engine after about 70 miles of motorway driving.
    I pulled off at the nearest town to save being stuck at the roadside.
    RAC failed to recover the vehicle within 24 hours so I asked a local garage to check it over and they came back with suspected cam shaft wear/ bearings gone. I don't think the block cracked though.

    I've finally got the car back and now looking for replacement engines, so far have found three engines with the following codes for sale fairly local to me and wondering if anyone can advise if any is a direct swap for bxe or if any are more suited?

    AVQ, BKC or BXF

    I'm looking at the modest price of £150 for the avq and possibly the same on bkc. Unsure on age or milage yet on any of them.

    Any advice appreciated! Cheers

    If itís camshaft wear you wonít need a new engine. Just replace the camshaft and buckets. Donít spend money on a misdiagnosis though to be told youíll need an engine after the cams been replaced. Banging is not consistent with worn cam lobes. Thatís more of a chuffing noise.

    On a separate note the only time Iíve seen crank failure where it hasnít put a hole in the block is on a 09 golf estate. I hope this isnít your issue.

    If it transpires you do need a new engine definitely donít use AVQ as I think itís too old and requires a load of modifications such as different cam pulley wheel and crank sensor hole cutting in the block or something.

    BXF is as bad as the BXE as itís the same engine only the ecu has dropped the bhp to 90 or so I think.

    BKC is a stronger but older engine than the BXE and probably your best bet if you can get a good one without high miles and oil leaks.

    Fit a new cam and lifters, better the engine you know than the one you don’t; there are many kits on the market but make sure the one you buy has a billet steel cam. It is a warranty stipulation of all cam suppliers that the injector rockers are replaced, these were only available genuine for daft money but now they are available from BGA. As Jon says, replacing the con rod bearings and bolts at this mileage is a very wise move.
    A petition has been started to allow the use of synthetic fuels when they become available, this may allow the continued sale of ICE vehicles post 2030 and the use of classic vehicles well into the futureÖ Their use may even be able to rival electric vehicles given the chance. Please sign this petition IF you feel the infernal combustion engine has a future if sustainable fuels are made available

    Cheers for the advice Jon and Crasher, so it may not need a 'new' block and could just be rebuilt.

    I think my best bet is get the car down to the local and see if they can inspect it fully to make sure there's no further damage than what I've been told.

    Had I known about the bxe issues I would've definitely taken the preventative measures previously described to try and avoid this happening, hopefully it can be saved as there's little else wrong with the car.

    I'll update hopefully in a few weeks when it's sorted!

    As recommended I've finally had mine done today, a local garage my boss uses said they'd do it, they weren't to bad, i haven't had a good look through them yet, several black marks inside and outside, and this one has a chip in it on inside, they showed me this one specifically and said it was good I had them changed!

    Unsure how to post a photo of them
