2.0 PD170 engine failures *Warning?*
Just noticed a post over on briskoda about sudden and catastrophic failure to a few PD170 units, apparently due to the oil pump failing and disintergrating... http://uk-mkivs.net/emoticons/emotion-6.gif
Have a look at: http://www.briskoda.net/forums/new-octavia/2-0-tdi-170-engine-failure/74145/
Does indeed seem like this engine is cursed with woes imo, poor economy for a diesel, issues with the DPF when remapped (a couple of DPF's have become blocked and caught fire due to this!) and now this..
Hope no-one on here is affected although all cars will be covered by warranty i suppose http://uk-mkivs.net/emoticons/emotion-21.gif
