FWD Ford Transit Connect 1.8 TDCI (06-12)
Manufactured by Ford this 1.8 common rail Diesel engine is the later version of the earlier Ford TDDI (direct injection) 1.8 engine. Just like many engine types this really has not changed much at all, In fact although the casting numbers and engine codes are stamped differently the engine blocks and sump pans are exactly the same.

We have measures put in place to ensure ALL of our Engines are reconditioned to an 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 Ford Transit Connect 1.8 TDCI engines are thoroughly cleaned, checked, measured, machined and then rebuilt with the following new parts.
The Ford Transit Connect doesn't seem to have many common engine faults it is generally down to negligence on behalf of the owner / driver, Head gaskets issues, low oil causing problems and the most common; timing belt failure. Generally it is recommended changing a timing belt at 70k miles.

A very simple, reliable engine! We do not tend to sell many of these engines which is a good sign for the owners however when we do, the return engine units once diagnosed seem to have the same re-occurring fault which is a broken / shredded timing belt. This issue is easily solved though, simply get this item replaced before it happens! Ford would recommend changing the timing belt on the Ford Transit Connect 1.8 diesel every 70k miles so around this should be sufficient and could potentially save you a lot of unnecessary expense.
