I recently obtained 1995 Peugeot 306 sr sedan but unfortunately the 1.8l petrol engine with a manual gearbox that came with it had water leaking through a crack on the engine block. I'm unable to replace the same engine because of it's availability where I am. I would like to replace it with a different Peugeot engine, I'm not very familiar with the different engines for the 306 model and which engine would be able to work. I would really appreciate any assistance or advice that I can get please, I've always like this car but just did not know alot about it.

Where are you? my info is for UK cars and most of Europe?
Look at your cars vin/chassis number it should have LFZ in it.
If so the engine is a 8V XU7JP/Z ,that engine is also fitted to Peugeot 405`s and Citroen Xantia`s. LFZ will be in both their vin numbers.
That engine comes with either multi point or mono injection. So,if yours is say mono and you find a multi point just fit the "metal lump" and transfer all the manifold,injection system etc over.

Thank you for replying and I live in Jamaica.
The chassis number I have is VF37BL6A23069721 which does not have LFZ in it of coarse. I am not sure if this is any help but the engine number is 10KJB12000354. I will also look into those two models and see if I can find any info.

Your vin number is a digit short. There should be 17 digits in total. If you post the correct vin I will look up your build sheet and post it here.

Have a look at this chart, it might help. Peugeot VIN numbers

At the moment the VIN you posted is not making sense. The VF37BL is ok, after that something is wrong. The next digit [position 7] should be a letter of the alphabet, not a 6. The next 2 should most likely be FZ [7 and 8 positions]

An L6A is a NON CAT 1.8 so it must be some sort of low compression carburetor engine.??
As it regards to the engine number that exactly what i saw on the registration. i think i have a picture of some writings on the engine block, i don't know if that is something you may be able to identify.ill post a picture of it but i'm certain that the engine that is damaged is fuel injected not carburetor

Yes you are right there was a missing item from the vin number was number {1}, appart from that the rest of the number was correct.

I just looked back over the numbers you posted and that is still your original engine it has done well to last this long :)

As for what fits ANY XU series engine will fit but if you fit anything other than the same you will need other parts best to just fit the same as old pug says they were used in many peugeot citroen cars of the time

Of coarse that's definitely what I would like to do but I'm just thinking outside the box. I have been searching around and it seems like I may have to ship an engine from Europe. Another factor is I would hate to have the same issue of water come from a crack in the block. I was informed that this is the second engine to be changed in that car.
