|01 1.9 dti - possible change of engine - wypte-bus-preservation|
Wonder if someone can assist me. I currently have a 51 plate Renault Scenic with 1.9 dTi engine. It has what I believe is a problem with the fuel pump or system, and so is a bad starter.
The car itself I like (much moreso that the 2003 onwards shape scenic that I have test driven and even more than current or previous Espace models) as I find it very comfortable to sit in and believe it has a good driving position, and I've had this idea that if I'm going to spend £500 on a new fuel pump (which may or may not cure the fault) there is an argument for saying why don't I spend an amount on a new engine (I wish to stick with diesel).
FIRST QUESTION - would the Renault common rail diesel engine fit in my car (in terms of compatibility with other systems, electrics etc) simply?
SECOND QUESTION - if I fancied something completely different, would a larger diesel engine (example the Peugeot 2.2 hDi engine) be possible to fit? I'm aware that there would be a high degree of rewiring needed and doubtless other issues too - I guess my question is whether it would physically fit?
Or should I just get rid of my Scenic and buy something else (MPV recommendations gratefully received - preferably a diesel that isn't too sluggish, and that doesn't have a centrally mounted speedometer).
Thanks in anticipation
