Hi all, engine just seized. How much would I be looking to pay to have another one fitted? Either including the engine or I could source one myself and just have it fitted? Love the car! And it's in really good condition, so I could sell it for scrap but would really like to keep it! Thanks...

Full engine will cost 300-700 and fitting will cost anything from £100-£1000 depending on who does it and how its done too many variables to be honest

I have 2 good engines here and i would do supply and fit of mine for £800 total but im too far away from you !

Just saw your reply in the other thread, sorry to hear, good news is you can rebuild the motor in the car, no need to take it out, what exactly happened?

Hi Harga, there was a message about the oil, can't remember want it was, then the stop warning came up and before I could stop the engine had cut out. AA man did some diagnostics as below, he recon'd the oil pump failed and seized the engine.

N{<control-000D>}\N{<control-000D>}System : Engine control 1 - 57J / Diesel EDC 16C34\N{<control-000D>}\N{<control-000D>}P1351 - Glow duration control. Error Message : Faulty.\N{<control-000D>}P2408 - Additive system. Error Message : Faulty.\N{<control-000D>}P0402 - Exhaust-gas re-circulation. Error Message : Less than minimum.\N{<control-000D>}P1728 - Torque monitoring / Requested torque. Error Message : not plausible.\N{<control-000D>}\N{<control-000D>}\N{<control-000D>}\N{<control-000D>}Engine seized.

I think the turbo has gone too as there was loss of power just before. Oil level and water are fine. I don't know enough about cars to know whether the repair can be done with the engine in situ or even exactly what went wrong with it :( gutted, I only had it not even 3 weeks. Guess I would need someone to have a look at it? Also the electrics were odd afterwards, the battery was fine but with the ignition on I couldn't shut the window, and the display wasn't coming up, then suddenly it would all come on for a bit then go off again.

Electrics going odd is normal as the engine needs to run to reactivate everything its economy mode but it could also point to an electrical issue rather than a seized engine !!

If engine is seized it does not mean turbo is toast it could be but not necessarily loss of power does not automatically mean turbo either again could be electrical you need someone who KNOWS what they are talking about to have a proper look before making a decision

As for fixing in situ although possible its not really viable and would probably end up costing more than replacing with a good used engine

Thanks, the AA man put it in first gear and we pushed the car back and forth as much as we could, the engine rocked back and forth. He said if it wasn't seized we would have been able to still push it when it was in gear, also he jacked her up and got a bar on the engine, not sure what part, and tried to turn it. He said it should turn if all was ok. When you start it there is just a click. So all I have is his advice.

I'm still undecided what to do. And if the engine is fixed I don't know if there are further problems. I'll phone round for quotes today and then make a decision.

Got a quote from a garage that does rebuilds / fits engine's, 4k for the engine and to fit it, 1.4k to fit an engine I've sourced. Waiting for another quote, but if it's anything like this I will scrap her. I've changed the engine in my bike, which was fine as it dropped out the bottom, but I would need a winch for a car engine?

Just got another quote through, 800 for the engine and 2.4k to fit. Including VAT is just under 4k. I'll try another couple of garages...
