    Hi Siamson,

    is the engine the PSA/Renault engine, or the Citroen motor?? The Renault engine is long lived and quite strong, though nowhere near as hardy as the Citroen motor. You will find this motor in Renault fuego's & a lot of other Renaults of the time, it shouldn't be hard to get parts for.

    If it's a Citroen motor, and runs well, it should last for a long time. Citroen motors are extremely strong and capable of enormous milages. If the engines tired, you will need to repair it regardless of what sort of motor it is. Remember though, once repaired I'd be very surprised if you got less than 300,000km's out of it before it needed touching again. Yes, the motors really are that strong

    seeya,

    If a Citroen engine is in good condition, doesn't have rattles, doesn't smoke, doesn't have oil all over the outside (the same as you would look for in any engine), then it should be OK. As shane said, the citroen engines are quite strong, you don't have to worry about an engine that is in good order. Make sure the hydraulics are OK, and there is no play in the suspension.
