We on my way to France (from England) by car. 10 miles from home, I hear a bang, then black smoke out of the exhaust, and struggled past 2,000 RPMs.
Anyway, so I returned home, then the next morning took it to a garage. And had to go.
I have just got back, and the garage have told me the turbo had broken and leaked oil in the engine. They say i'm gonna need a new engine with a turbo. the only sign I had was a slight leak from what looked like a seal new the turbo. In hindsight the leak must've been coming from the turbo.
So friends have told me the turbo should be replaced, and as the engine wasn't driven too much will need to be cleaned.
But the garage tell me the I need a new engine with a turbo. They are sure the engine is finished, so now i'm looking for a reconditioned/second hand engine with turbo.
Does anyone else think the engine should remain? this is the first time I have had to replace the whole engine.
Also, does anyone have any idea where I can find a second hand Jeep Cherokee 2.8 CRD engine with turbo in the UK?
