i have a 207 1.6 hdi and i suspect the big end bearings have gone because its knocking and the crank does not rotate proply seems to have a lot of play in it and i also have a video of it running hoping i could send it to someone for advice many thanks
Ah come on, you're all being very hard on me. I've a dislike of the way people mind them is all.
I'd be interested in finding out if actually the big ends are gone. I've never seen this happen to this engine and I've had the pleasure of working on it since it came out in 2004.
Few questions, What mileage? What oil was used?
you are right there davidireland my own fault though for not looking at the car will do that will get it done tommorrow just curious to what has happened to that engine because the turbo is fine may be oil pump fault ? any way thank you davidireland will let you know how i get on
Now a couple of people in the past have told me about the crank pulley rubber buffer breaking up and the harmonics from that would have you maybe think, and with good reason the bottom end may have picked up.
I can honestly say having heard it myself it is possible that you may instantly think it's the crank gone.
wish it was that simple trust me its not the pulley any way update time have spoken to the last owner of the car today and he has told me that the oil temp went in to the red and he ended up being broke down he than got picked up and taken back to the garage were he bought it from and they told him the crank was shot and they were not going to repair it so he had another car off them ,The question i would like to ask is why would the oil temp shot up like that and than the crank or bearings to go ?
