Air Cooled Engine

The Volkswagen air cooled engine is one of the most widely used and versatile internal combustion engines in the world. Variations of this engine were produced by VW plants around the world from 1936 until 2006.

There engines have cast iron cylinders, forged crankshaft and connecting rods, and cast aluminum heads and pistons were hallmarks of the design.

Gasoline Engine

The EA111 engine series was introduced in the mid 1970s in the VW Polo. It is a series of water cooled three- and four-cylinder gasoline and Diesel engines in a variety of sizes.

The overhead cam engine features a crossflow cylinder head design and directly-driven auxiliary units. The exhaust side is in driving direction. These comprises of three cylinders, four cylinders, EA113 / 827, EA888, five, six, eight, ten, twelve and sixteen cylinders.

Overhead camshaft (OHC) valvetrain configurations place the camshaft within the cylinder heads, above the combustion chambers, and drive the valves or lifters directly instead of using pushrods. When compared directly with pushrod (or I-Head) systems with the same number of valves, the reciprocating components of the OHC system are fewer and in total will have less mass.

Though the system that drives the cams may become more complex, most engine manufacturers easily accept the added complexity in trade for better engine performance and greater design flexibility.

The OHC system can be driven using the same methods as an I-Head system, these methods may include using a timing belt, chain, or in less common cases, gears.

Many OHC engines today employ Variable Valve Timing and multiple valves to improve efficiency and power. OHC also inherently allows for greater engine speeds over comparable cam-in-block designs.

There are two overhead camshaft layouts:

  • Single overhead camshaft (SOHC)
  • Double overhead camshafts (DOHC)

Diesel engines

The 1.9 TDI is the emblematic turbodiesel from Volkswagen, which developed the notion of various outputs of the same engine.

In the Passat, the 90 hp was introduced in 1993, the 110 hp in 1996 and the first TDI with pump­jet direct injection in 1998 with 115 hp. The EA086 is built in Puebla, Mexico for North America. These have progressively been discontinued, and now only the new 105 hp version is used on new models, like the Golf V, the Jetta and the new Passat.

The 134-170 hp 2.0L TDI engine was made to replace the older higher-powered versions of the 1.9 TDI. It is the first DOHC 4-cylinder TDI engine made by Volkswagen. There will be an even more powerful version of this engine for new Audi TT.
The V10 TDI is the biggest diesel engine used in personal cars.
