1.9 is xud engine fitted in lots of cars 205 305 405 406 etc etc problem is there are 3 or 4 versions and most later ones are turbocharged it depends what you are actually trying to do.

early 306 turbo or 406 turbo would probably be best but you will have plumbing to do for intercooler depends if you want to climb hills fast or slow :)

boxer

hi
thankyou for the detailed reply
does anybody have a suitable donor vehicle or engine as above
can buy whole car if necessary (and cheap enough )

is this the best section to request an engine ?

Can you explain in a bit more detail what you have and what you want i know it sounds simple but sometimes people dont really ask what they actually mean to ask

as i say most are turbo in later models do you want a faster engine or original what is wrong with yours you may not need an engine your not giving much away :)

boxer

my engine despite new glowplugs and injectors smokes like mad on startup and till it has been run for about ten minutes -loads of smoke, light colour, grey, white
compression is down on 2 and 3 ,
maybe rings, valves ,
done a sniff test and supposedly not head gasket
just want a running engine to drop in

Ok so you need a non turbo engine you are going to struggle to find the correct one to drop straight in you cant just take the turbo off a turbo engine you really need your engine code

You also need to be careful as there is also a later model people call a 1.9 but its really not the same engine it is called a dw8 or WJY engine code and wont fit your gearbox as angles were changed

I`ve just SORNed a 1995 306XLD that I`ve been driving for the last 14 years.
Still starts instantly,runs as sweet as a nut,no smoke,doesn't use oil,typical old XUD. Will that engine do the job??

It probably would but without his engine code to confirm its hard to say
My 306 is a VF37AD9B230813067 and is stored the other side of town.
The V5 has engine number.......CU6M4153430 is that it? or do I have to look for that little metal tag down by the oil filter?

So the D9B in the vin number means its the correct one then.
This car has been in my family since new so I know it still has the original engine.
Do you want the car philll ?

According to service box your van is a 1.9 turbo diesel this is why i wanted your full vin as your saying 1.9 and to most that means non turbo

Engine code D8C OR DHX so IF it is indeed turbocharged then oldpugs engine is no good a 306 turbo diesel will fit or a 405/early 406 citroen bx early xantia plenty to choose from
