What have you been quoted?

Hi Thanks for the quick response.

I have had a couple of quotes around £1700 delivered (then I would have to get it fitted).

Best price so far is £1500 delivered for a re-conditioned engine.

I was really not expecting it to be quite as much.... :?

As far as I know, it's the 2.0TDCI Ford engine. May be cheaper to look for one of those ?

Hi,

The ford 2.0TDCI is the same engine? Do you know if it is a straight replacement or would a ford engine need changed in anyway (pipes, placement of connections etc) before installed?

Thanks.

Cars worth 4k tops is it really worth putting a new engine in?

I live in Northern Ireland but I am sure I can arrange for a collection if somewhere can't send here.

Thanks for your help.

Modern 2 litre diesel engines are not cheap. My main concern would be ensuring that you get any ancilleries needed - for example, is the fuel pump coded to your ECU etc. etc.

Also if I got a re-conditioned engine (i.e Zero Miles) does anyone know if the miles on the clock should be amended?

No, you are only changing the engine, not the whole car.

Too late now, but if you had have got the petrol engined one, I bet it would still be going strong.

You would need to register the new engine as belonging to the car with the DVLA and provide them with various details. Your car mileage remains the same. You would of course be able to use it as a selling point when time comes to sell the car, some people would see it as a negative though.

Never heard of a petrol out-lasting a diesel - on terms of mileage etc.

Most, I would say.

What, that a very expensive reconditioned engine has been recently fitted into the car? I would only see it as a negative if the engine's history was unknown, otherwise it would be a selling point.

Why do you disagree?

Is it a diesel ?

The petrol engines in these cars are far more reliable.

Might be best checking local breakers, Crash damaged cars etc,

Ok, maybe I shouldn't speak on behalf of others.
Personally then, if I was looking to buy one and saw it had a reconditioned engine I would quickly move on to the next one. Having to have a reconditioned engine in a relatively young car would just leave me worried about the rest of the car. Has it been abused? Neglected? Was it fitted by cowboys?
I'd sooner just move along and find a decent car in original condition with verifiable mileage and FSH.

Look on eBay for a crash damaged car. They can break them for parts and frequently the engines are ok. I wouldnt bother spending much TBH.

Nah, it's the 2.0 Diesel. The only common problem with the diesel engines are the diesel pumps failing apparently.

The engine is a Mazda built MZR-CD, not a Ford TDCi, as per a previous post in this thread. I hear the Ford engine is not the best available, maybe that's where the petrol over diesel rumour comes from.

Not being funny but is it really worth putting a new engine in? I'm sure its a lovely car but it'll probably cost you 2k+ to source and fit a new engine in... How much, realistically, is your car worth?
