2.4 JTD 10v - What to Do ?

Hi Guys,

My 166 is back from maintenance after a turbocharger rebuilding and EGR replacement, and I was wondering what are your opinion on possible maintenance for an old and lived engine like mine (that has 358.000 km).

Currently I don't sense any particular problem/noise/strange behavior a part from a random idle vibration (injectors?), but nothing was ever done to this unit, so everything is mostly original.

In your opinion, considering the engine alone, what do you suggest should be checked in order to maintain the beast alive and kicking?

358k is not problem! It's 50% remaining life or more.

About idle yes, injectors could need service or engine/gearbox silentblocks. You can try with good gas-oil and light injector cleaner solution for a time.

Use good combustible, engine oil and gearbox oil and don't worry.
