Thanks. I'll look into that. Do you think it's more likely to be that than the Turbo?

In Topic: Which Is The Better 1.6Tdci 2.0Tdci Engine

From my experience, I'd say 2.0 litre all the way.

I have the 1.6 and it's possibly the worst experience I have ever had the misfortune to endure. My car has a full service history and has been well looked after and it never fails to let me down. I will be getting rid as soon as I can afford to replace it!

I previously had a 2.0 litre and it was one of the best cars I ever owned and I only replaced it because of its age. Wished I kept it now though.

I wasn't expecting it to be that expensive. It didn't happen all at once. They'd repair one thing and I thought it's sorted now but it wasn't. I'd invested so much in the car, it seemed right to do it.

Had I foreseen the situation, I'd have jacked it in and got shot right at the start. Lol -_-

The total bill with everything came to just over £1200 with parts and labour. -_-

After all of that, the service is due now and MOT next month! Lol.

I usually use Morissons fuel. I think the problem with the power loss was down to a catalogue of problems.

The oil filter ruptured due to vibration / rubbing.

Turbo was connected to the engine block without a gasket.

The intercooler pipe was badly split in a difficult to see place.

All of these issues are apparently quite common (except missing gasket).

This was all very expensive along with getting the DPF replaced!

Seems to be great now it's sorted.
