200tdi engine block damage advice

Serious Series

Recommended Posts

After some advice from experienced engine repairers.

Damaged my 200tdi engine when crossing a river by getting water into the intake.

Currently have the engine stripped and apart from two bent conrods the only damage found so far is lower skirt of No4 cylinder bore has this piece fractured off it.


The piece is 10mm at the highest point will I get away with dressing the fractured edge so it is not sharp?

Lower part of piston does come down as far as the damage.


I actually suspect the bend in No4 conrod has been there for awhile as firing order is 1342 and the bend in No3 was totally locking the engine.

Both Conrods had to be cut to remove them
