It’s getting picked up tomorrow.
I’ll know exactly what it is once they get stuck in (engine needs reconditioning), but I suspect shot crank bearing and maybe oil pump.

These engines are generally really reliable, looks like I got unlucky. Reconditioning company is charging £1800, which is a lot better than hyundai’s 6k+vat for a recon swap in.

Good choice Max, my Citroen Dispatch is great. The fuel stats are a bit exaggerated but I got 45.9 mpg driving to Tiree, round the island for a month and back, which is not bad. Fun to drive too.

Looks awesome, Max.

Update with mine:
Engine rec0n company ended up being a huge scam operation, they have had 3K off me and it is possible I will lose the van also. There are between 400 and 800 victims so far, many of whom have never seen their cars again.
There’s a big West Midlands police operation targeting them, it’s been going for years with very little success.
I am going to go up later this week and try to take it back off them, seems my only option of getting it back - probably with a big hole where the engine used to be 😟

take the dog and let it sniff the owners bollocks and then ever so gently squeeze them then ask for it back nicely

be prepared to ring the police if you are threatened and wait it out take the log book and proof of ownership so if you need to speak to the police you have the details

also it would be a shame if it were to catch fire whilst on there premises so the insurance would pay out its like I've had a premonition

Goodluck !
