Hi all,

My 2004 2.2 cdi killed itself. The turbo ran away and blew up the radiator.

the engine still starts eventually but not very well.

I have 4 questions and would be very appreciated of any advice anyone can offer please?

1) Should I buy and fit a new engine, turbo and radiator?

2) should I try and repair/replace parts on the existing engine?

3) Should I buy another one I have £2400?

4) Has anyone every seen or know of a 2.5l
6 speed manual xtrail for sale. Apparently the made some between 2007 and 2010?

Thanks in advance.

Well you have had a runaway engine which means it has run well over normal operating revs for a diesel and put god knows what strain on connecting rods-crank -pistons -bearings-injector pump ect .I personally would find a donor engine .

Wonder what caused that to happen, it’s an interesting event from a mechanical point of view. I understand why it happens, but what was the first domino to fall in the chain of events leading to the runaway? A blockage or leak somewhere? It’s impressive.

Anyway, I just recently received a rebuilt 2.2 DCi, YD22DDTi from Tornau Motoren in Germany.

Someone I know who claims to know about turdo diesels reckon the oil seals in the turbo where likely to have gone causing the turbo burn on the oil.

When my mate ran his JCB doing any street works for the gas board, their engines had a device fitted so they could switch the dam thing off if a pipe leaked gas and it gas entered into air filter as engine would keep running otherwise and probably kill itself .Best bet is to try and stall it or chuck a great lump of rag into air filter inlet .
