Sorry if this has been asked and answered before but I couldn't see it.
I've one of the 1.6 TDCI engines that have well reported turbo/oil problems for one reason or the other and I've now managed to sieze my engine and my mechanic has suggested a replacement engine would be cheaper rather than a strip down of my existing engine so what I'm asking is what make/model/type of engine would I be best going for, if there is any difference at all in that respect or would a 1.8 TDCI be a straight forward swap out as I'm led to believe the 1.8 doesn't have the same turbo/oil problem traits
Thanks in advance for any replies/pointers
