    Default The 2.0 DTI Engine advice please.....

    Hello,

    Looking at an Astra SRi 2.0 DTi ...

    Any advice what to look for? I went and viewed it the other day and when i rev it at about 2800rpm the engine pitch changes and theres a bit of a knock, sounds like a big end baring knock, but isnt a big end knock lol..

    I'm not that concerned as i've heard other DTi's with this same sound

    Anyhow, i know next to nothing about this enigne so any advice you can offer?

    Also tuning boxes? I have driven this engine in the vectra and the proformance was far from excellent... ?

    Vehicle : Insignia 160

    Trim : Elite Leather Light n Sight

    Engine : 2.0 16v

    Year : 2012

    Mileage : 50k

    Default

    Very poor performance with this engine. Good between 70 - 90 on the Motorway, but hopeless for overtaking on A and B roads.
    Dangerous in my opinion.
    And they shouldn't knock. Mine never did.
    I wouldn't have another DTi.
    Take the advice and walk away !

    the dti is a great we engine with very little problems other than the egr valve needing a clean , i have had about 6 dti,s the 1 i have now is a bit rattely but its been like that for the last 35,000 mile so i wouldnt panic to much
    they are chain driven and the 2.0 in a astra is lively enough better than the 1.7dti

    The fuel pump springs to mind when we discuss problems.
