I'm on the hunt for a Golf aswell, and from what i've been reading it seems to be around 200k as long as you maintain it well by getting oil changes at recomended intervals (every 6k), acting on warning lights immediately and replacing timing belt when required.

You need to overhaul the engine. Your first mission is troubleshooting: did the engine seize because the pistons seized, or because the main bearings seized? To do so, pull the heads and try to remove the cylinders. If they won't come off, piston seize. If they will and when you have them off the engine won't turn over...bearing seize.

What is the best first truck?

I personally would go with a toyota. I've had them for years and never had a problem. Remember to change your oil and fluids and you shouldn't have a problem.Toyota's have been known to go over 300,000 miles before they need an overhaul. I prefer the six cylinder but the 1985-1995 4 cylinder (22R-e) is also a very reliable engine, with good gas mileage too.

If the spark plugs have oil on them do they need to be replaced?

First things first. What year, make, model, engine, and mileage? When were the spark plugs last replaced? Short answer: Yes. They should be replaced as part of the major engine overhaul your car needs. There should never be any oil on the spark plugs. A little carbon buildup, perhaps, but no oil. That indicates a serious engine proble such as worn out piston rings, worn out valves and guides, or a worn out turbocharger seal.

Change the oil and install a quality filter such as Purolator, Wix, AC/Delco, etc. Use the correct weight oil for your engine as recommended by the manufacture. If you still hear the knock at startup, this is a sign the engine bearings are worn. Nothing will fix this short of an overhaul.

Also i had the same question a while ago and I found that I was correct when I said that the Steam Engine was invented before the radio. I hope this helps you with your work. =)
