Engine 1.6 16v any good
#1
Good morning all,some friends and I have purchased a 2005 Citroen Berlingo multispace desire model for a European banger rally around Europe, anything I should be aware of reliability wise as we have brought the petrol model mainly because there's a vehicle cost limit for rally

Hello - depends how much money you want to fling at the car after buying it in my book?

I've no experience of the 16V petrol but I'd just do to it what I'd do with any 'new' car I've bought:

cambelt & aux belt (if no history change it)
brakes - look at the pads/shoes change if needed
spark plugs - on yours change 'em - couple of quid each
tyres - dead or alive
spare(s) - ditto - can you get the bloody thing out from underneath or is it rusted in situ
oil/filter/air filter - change - cheap

If your not after spending £££ then skip the cambelt.

Anything else then I'd just leave it, you could go all involved and start looking at the rear torsion bars, shocks and the like but for a banger rally  (unless the purchase price excludes post purchase 'upgrades')? Rolleyes Rolleyes Rolleyes

Yes I've got evidence of a cambelt and auxiliary belt change at 88k,I fitted a recon rear axle as old torsion bars one had snapped,new offside wheel bearing, New hub,near front discs and pads,new plugs,air,oil and oil filter change,my question was whether the 1.6 16v petrol has any inherent faults as it feels very robust design
