Inside Line: Forté

by

This model also uses the 1.6 common rail diesel engine which we have a bulletin on. One particular area a garage should look at when servicing this model is oil sludge caused by contaminated injectors reducing oil flow to critical moving parts. In many cases when the turbo has failed, engine components such as the crankshaft have already been subject to wear. It is important when servicing these engines to inspect the oil filter when removed. If there are signs of oil sludge, then the banjo bolt and gauze filter on the vacuum pump should be checked. If oil sludge is present, then there should be some manual cleaning of the crankcase including oil sump removal. The engine should then be flushed and the oil and filter change carried out. It is also important to clean the fuel system regularly as the oil contamination starts from contaminated injectors. The customer should be advised accordingly on the action which is required.
