Peugeot Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.
What engine are buildt in this 308cc?
Diesel or Gasoline?
Yes, one moment please.
ok, is the VTI engine (gasoline).
With this engine you cannot avoid a replacement engine. These engines often have problems with coked intake manifolds. This has the consequence that the engine is damaged in the long run.
I as a specialist would not buy a vehicle with these problems and advise also everyone against it.
Especially since it is a dealer who sells the vehicle and not a private person. Why should the dealer sell a vehicle at a cheap price if he could have 5 x in the repaired condition?
Quite simply, the repair is not worthwhile and exceeds the value of the vehicle. With a new engine you would be around GBP 6-7k. If you have a used engine in good condition, you will have to reckon with half the cost, but you risk having the same problem again.
I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
