JTD engine problem
Newbie here and immediately have a question for you guys. My 166 JTD suffered a breakdown on the motorway some six weeks ago. Now my mechanics from both my regular workshop and the Bosch workshop claims that my car suffers from valve problems due to oil & ash residue travelling from the intake manifold into the engine leading to internal damage. Is this possible? The story is a sad one, they have had me to buy a new ECU amongst other things when they couldn't figure out what the problem was and now after six weeks they claim that this is the problem. Anyone who has had this problem with JTD engines?
Thankful for opinions on this matter as I'm a bit suspicious after all this trouble.
