Found it in Nasik on my visit to my brother's place but knew instinctively that iot has pottential, well paid only 17,500 for it and the Ford Seirra that it was fitted on had a reading of 85,000, let me know what could be the approx remaining life in kms that I can expect?
Thanks

Default XD2 and XD2s

out of both these engines XD2 is more reliable. with proper care, should last for 2Lak Kms.

XD2s Built in 85-86 are reported to have problems of burnt gaskets . may be due to high Temp created by turbos.

rebuilding both engine should not be a problem.. most of the parts match with XD3p engines other than stroke

Awaiting for your MM 540 XD2S Pic...

Dear Fazal - It is the engine which was used in the Peugeot J9 van. 2 nos J9s vans were imported into the country. They were superb, I have driven them extensively. The J9s were registered as MMU something in 1982 and were in Nasik. They were cream in colour. The lower fan position was used for the Voyager application of XD3 in 1997 but Voyager had a different intake manifold. This engine also has a cast mounting bracket, so it may have been used in a Sierra as you say, I do not know exactly, but Peugeot used to supply diesel engines to numerous manufacturers, so it is possible. The sensor on the LHS rear side of the head at the back is a temperature sensitive device with a cable connecting to the FIP to stabilize engine idling speed. It is broken however. What you need to do is remove the unwanted things (e.g.change the fan location which you can now put on the water pump to ensure reliability) and use it. Also try and locate the original dry type air cleaner. It was fitted on the valve cover. The depressions that you see on the valve cover are for this purpose. The dirty air intake was from the front side centre and direct outlet to the manifold from the annular space with a small straight hose. It was a work of art. It is very difficult to locate now but performance wise it was superb but in our country everybody wants "oil bath" type air cleaner because nobody wants to change the element so lot of things got diluted. Sad but true.

Please clean the engine thoroughly from the inside. These chor bazaarwallahs are notorious for keeping things dirty. By the way, was this the same chor bazaar behind the Bajaj Auto showroom in Nasik? Is the Sierra still there? I go there in the evenings quite often, let me see. By the way, I picked up a treasure for my fiats for a pittance.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

You have to change the engine bed location, the inlet manifold, the exhaust manifold, the water pump and the crankcase and also the position of the cooling fan.
