Self Study Program 233 – 2.0L Engine

VAG SSP 233. In this Self-Study Programme, you can familiarise yourself with the design and function of the 113 series engine and 827 series engine with intermediate distributor drive shaft.

The 2.0-litre engine stems from a successful engine generation and has a long history. The engine blocks of the 1.6-litre and 1.8-litre engines have a similar design.

The functions of components such as the coolant pump, radiator, oil pump and oil pump motor are identical.

A notable feature of these engines is their closed system control loops which greatly reduce the pollutant emission in the exhaust gases.

The 2.0-litre engine has different structural design details than the 113 and 827 series. VW has been fitting the engine with intermediate shaft in the Golf convertible since May 1999. The 2.0-litre/88 kW engine with flying camshaft (Flino) and new functional features will also be presented.
