Identify engine and gearbox
#1
Hi all. How do I identify which engine and gearbox I have?

Jan 2003 ( 52 reg ) 1.9 Diesel Van.

I am about to commence an epic 'rebuild'. Replacement gearbox, clutch, thrust bearing and pressure plate, cambelt, water pump, alternator/ps pump belt and an oil and filter change.

Might need a tailpiece to the exhaust and brake pads too. Depending on the engine Id I may need a crankshaft pulley I suspect as something down there is making one hell of a racket!

Anything else i should consider while I'm at it?

:eek:

Replace the cambelt idler pulleys as well.As far as identification goes,if the eng/trans is all original,reg or V.I.N. should be enough for obtaining spares.As a tip,try GSF for parts,I've found them good.:thumbsup:

Thanks for that but I'm looking for a recon or used gearbox so I need to know what I'm looking for so a part number would be great.

Ordered a workshop manual on disk so hopefully that will be helpful.

Added idler pulleys to the list!

    Look for the gearbox ID code, it's etched usually on the front or top of the box, there is a short code (which you want) followed by a unit serial. In the example shown the ID is 20CD74.
