Hi all,

I recently purchased a skoda felicia pickup with the aim of doing it up and getting it back on the road. However it turns out the engine has a hole in it so I will need a new engine.

I have spent the last couple of days searching everywhere but unfortunately have been unable to find anyone selling one.

I read somewhere though that the 1.6 petrol engine in the skoda felicia is actually the same one as the VW polo 1.6. Is this true? Can I just get a vw polo one and get the garage to put that in as there are definitely a lot more of those around. I also read about some people upgrading it to a vw 1.4.

Any advice on this would be much appreciated as I really don't want to see the old girl get scrapped and would love to get her back to her former glory.

That has an AEE code engine so you will be able to find a useable unit in a yard with some early 00’s Polo’s.
