The 1.6TDCI as mentioned is rather infamous for starving the turbo of oil & the turbo then going bang.  The 1.8TDCI is an older Ford design with the modern bits (common rail injection) added on top, enjoy block is cast not aluminium so the engine itself is pretty bulletproof, a bit rattly compared to the more modern designs).  2.0TDCI is a modern design without the drawbacks of the 1.6, is generally solid & it's more the general DMF stuff that applies to all diesels.

 

I've got the 1.8TDCI & I'm happy with it (I'd swap it for for a 6 speed 2.0 TDCI though!) lol
