We have measures put in place to ensure ALL of our Engines are reconditioned to a expert standard, this is imperative to ensure a good working engine and to abide by the rules and regulations of FER (federation of engine rebuilds).
These Citroen Dispatch 1.6 HDI engines are thoroughly cleaned, checked, measured, machined and then rebuilt with the following new parts.
Timing belts failures seem to be a re-occurring fault on this vehicle after a certain mileage but this is not down to the design of the engine or the belt, simply negligence by the owner / driver. Timing belts need to be changed at the recommended intervals of an engine life. We have noticed that the front mains cap can sometimes crack which can cause oil pressure issues as it relieves the pressure of the bolts holding the cap down.

In our opinion a great little engine that we do not tend to sell too many of even though it fits a wide variety of makes and models, which must be a good sign in terms of reliability. As discussed above there are some failures unfortunately the mains cap cracking is something you cannot really help. I believe this is just a bit of a design fault however it does not happen all the time so is not something to fear. The timing belt just like any vehicle especially these commercial vans that are generally under load and working day in day out, need to be changed. It can be a few hundred pounds to do which no one wants to part with but it is money well spent and can help prevent a whole rebuild / recondition in the future.
