I am not particularly familiar with your forum but it looks cool!
I have a 155 TD 2.5 160000Kms (114000 Miles)
I have no manual for the engine and I haven't found any so far ... sorry if my questions are stupid.
- Does anyone know where I can find some information on this engine? I think it's manufactured by VM.
- Is it a belt or chain for the distribution?
- At what frequency should I change the chain/belt?
- Is there any known weaknesses for this engine?
Yep, I`ve checked the service notes and the 1.9 has a belt to be replaced at 120,000Km but the 2.5 has no service item for Cam belt/chain. This is probably because the picture shows the engine as an overhead valve not overhead cam! My god, how old is this engine design - I havn`t seen a OHV for 20 years! (well, nearly).
I also just bought a beautifull 155 2.5 TD from 97 with 100.000km but I didn't get the proper manual with it. My manual is only about the 1.8/2.0/2.5V6... I'd really like some more specific information about this car and especially the VM engine. Does anyone know where I can get a manual?
