    Icon11 Pug 504 Diesel

    Can anyone tell me if they know of any typical Pug 504 Diesel issues - I've seen a couple (81 models) I'm interested in, but I really don't know enough about them to make an informed decision. Does it matter if they have been used for towing? Mileage is between 275k and 300k.
    Thanks in advance!

    PopFrog,
    Cooling systems. Any history of overheating. Look for coolant/rusty water stains around pressure cap.

    Oil consumption. Not uncommon on 504 diesel even low milers.

    I have had 2 and did a lot of km in both....possibly even 300,000 km all up. I had a number of head issues with both and overheating was not the problem. Other people seem to have a good run.
    I have wrecked 2 as well which both died with head issues.

    I have owned 2 both with remarkable performance. The second had head issues with cracks between the valve seats. I suspect it may have been cooked by a former owner.
    Both had body rust on the left side around the front door hinge.
