TDV8 starts but dies instantly


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the encouragement Simon! The engine definitely isn't seized, we just hoped it would at least try to come alive without the turbo's to prove it's health.

I got a message from the owner today, asking me to go ahead and replace the turbos. So we're in for the full monty. 🙂

I meant to add that while I was repairing the front end on my current sport and replacing the front body cross member at the time it looked very likely that the engine and turbos could be removed from the front with the front end stripped down. When it comes to removing the engine to sell it I will experiment and see if that is an option as taking the headlights, the grille, slam panel and the two cross members off is much easier than taking the body shell off even if some minor welding is required to refit.

Will keep you posted.
