Re: SUPER low mileage 1.6 Any problems you think?

You will at least have to do the following:
Change every single seal in it
Timing belt
Water pump
Oil pump should be inspected
Remove head, inspect valves and rings/cylinders
12 yrs is too long to sit , I'd bet money the cylinders are rusted pretty good and it will either have to be bored or need at least new rings . You'd be pretty luck if the pistons aren't rusted right to the walls via the rings and rod pins . Check the crank as well , if it's been dry in one bearing , it's toast . Sorry for the bad report....
