    Default Citroen Berlingo 1.4 engine differences?

    Citroen Berlingo 1.4 engine differences?

    The Berlingo stripped the cam belt before the belt was due to be changed.
    Slight oil leak had appeared on the crank area after a few long trips, pity i hadn't noticed .
    Overlooked changing belt as been snowed under with family problems.

    It died not far from home so the wife towed me home about a kilometer.
    Oddly coming down the hill the engine fault light came on as the belt stripped.
    I brought up to the shed a good P 206 1.4 engine but i notice it is cast iron engine and the inlet manifold is slightly different, Bosch computer.

    The engine in the Berlingo is the alloy block type, PSA computer.

    So wonder if i change the injection/manifold i can use the donor engine?

    I reset the valve clearances and all out by an equal amount so figured i will do a comp test to find bent valves. Live in hope.
    I put another belt on and no life , not sure if it is a computer problem or the bent valves.
    Comp test will tell more.

    Will the iron block engine run if i change all the sensors and the manifolds?
    Someone must have been down this track?

    The van was a good thing bought it late last year, been serviced , 130,000 klms, timing pulley shagged and plugs a real effort to get out , so you wonder what if anything the mechanics did for their money.

    My thoughts are to change the inlet manifold/ injection/rocker cover back to the head , various sensors .
    The Berlingo then should not have any reason to recognise that the engine has been changed.
    Then as i often say,
    "What could go wrong."

    James on the Peugeot forum offered this advice,

    "Alternatively I don’t thinking anything would stop you from fitting the 1.6 with all the 1.4 parts and sensors."
    Clearly the remark was not made from practical experience.
    My last words were , "What could go wrong?'

    Clearly you have not done this or know of the differences between the Peugeot and Citroen fittings of the same motor , Citroen do it to be different is the nicest way to put it.
    As i have said elsewhere the manifolds, exhaust, fuel injection , timing assembly, air con bracket are all different .


    Still not sure if it will work , it runs but the engine runs too fast , won't idle.
    Normally i don't have these problems.. hope its not terminal.
    Even the flywheel and clutch are different, cooling pipes etc , etc.

    The exhaust has to be fabricated as the 206 manifold clears the oil filter where the Citroen does not .
    So far after two days its not finished, trips to the farm for parts .

    I like good advice but bad advice wastes my time, had i known the constant level of difficulty with this project i would have just rebuilt the head.
    This makes it essential that you have the Peugeot 206 donor car.

    The car runs but engine races erratically, i will continue tomorrow.
    Again the level of difficulty does not make it sensible to change the type of Berlingo engine.
    Work on days not hours.
