Broken 147 1.9 JTDm
I have a 147 1.9 JTDm Ducati Corse and, on Saturday, I done something incredibly stupid.......over filled it with oil!
I was caught by surprise when the car suddenly accelerated towards a roundabout (luckily, there was no one coming and was able to get it round). I pulled over on the side of the dual carriageway and turned the engine off. I then, again stupily, started the car again it proceeded to rev its nuts off and plumes of grey and white smoke came out of the exhaust and white smoke from, what i believe to be, the turbo.
After a bit of confusion when I pulled the key out and the engine kept on revving, it eventually cut out. There was no sound of things smashing themselves to pieces. I called out the RAC and got recovered to my friends workshop.
On Sunday, my friend and I drained out the oil, replaced with new and turned it over. She was trying to start but never did. Last night, we looked at the Cambelt which was found to oh so very out of time. This was rectified and again, we turned it over but no joy.
Tonight / tomorrow we are looking at taking the thing apart and assessing the extent of the damage to valves, pistons ect.
I am looking for a bit of advice really. If anyone can suggest where is best to start looking, is there anything silly that we might have missed........I am open to all suggestions / help.
I am also starting to realise that the thing might be dead and that there is no "cost effective" way of repairing it so I have looked into replacing the engine. I have found a factory new one at Auto Lusso. I have heard a lot of good and a lot of bad things about them and was wondering if anyone here has had any experience dealing with them. My pride has taken a big hit and I just want to fix the problem that I have created for myself with the least amount of hassel. Or if anyone else knows of someone who could assist, it would be very much appreciated.
