Hello all,

The turbo has just gone on my beloved 2004 S-Type 2.7d.I have been advised that both Turbo's need to be replaced.I had a second opinion also which confirmed this.In which case I either risk getting 2 reconditioned Turbo's and I have found a mechanic who will fit them and do all associated bits for £350.Alternatively I can pop a new engine in.Any advice either way?I have located the Turbo's for £295 each.I called the local salvage yard who had just sold a complete engine for £700.Anyone know of any bargain places to get a replacement engine?Obviously I have no mechanical knowledge what so ever.Hence being on here and asking foy your advice. ☺

Hi

If just one turbo has failed, I would just replace that turbo

the other turbo might have years left in it, its vary rare for both turbo's to fail at the same time, unless it a oil feed problem

if your engine is in good condition, just replace the failed turbo

buying a second hand engine could be a mine field unless, you know the history of the engine and have heard it running, the engine could have more wear than yours and there nothing to say, that the turbo's wont fail on that engine

cheers

You should be able to pickup a remanufactured exchange turbo for around £260 if your casing has not split? If the cause is lack of oil check the filter in the feed pipe plus if 2 turbos? failed best to check its not faulty EGR valves that caused the failure. It would also be wise to remove and clean the intercooler if the pipe looks oily inside + engine oil and filter change. Its good practice after a high speed run to let the car tick over for 2 minuets before turning off.

Hi,

would no bother too much hassle

once you swap the engine, nothing on the car will work, because every thing on the S-type is canbus connected

so, by losing the oe engine ecu, things that wont work any more, dash,speedo, gauges, fuel pumps, auto box, parking brake, ABS, active damping, stability program, climate, cruise, central locking, alarm

cheers

Joe
