Recommended Posts

woah, have you done any engine work ralph??

my 200tdi has done nearly 190,000 miles :D

jase

only a new turbo at 250,000 & a cylinder head last year as the original had internal cracks, bottom end is all as built by LR, timing belts done by myself at home, injection pump rebuilt about 6 years ago & injectors/glowplugs replaced, strarter motor is original, alternator changed to a 100amp unit about 13 years ago.

69k on a '95 300tdi

sounds a bit wimpy compared to some of the galactic mileages on here!

the next question should be........

is the mileage without any major engine re-builds [ignore head gasket] and on the same gearbox, tbox and diffs?

i know mine is - but what about you high milers??

thats quite impressive really, shows what a good unit the 200tdi's are :)

as far as i know mine hasnt had any major work done to it, just the oils every 6months.

everytime I've done the timing belt, the old one looks as good as a brand new belt, never had one snap.

how many of those miles has the 200tdi done, i take it being 1989 it had a td to begin with?

1985 - 130,000 miles on a Td and passed MOT a couple of weeks back

Yep, it was a TD whch died at 103,260 which means the 200Tdi has got 302,072 on it.
