Need Some Info
#1
Hi All,

Hope everyone is staying safe.

Bit of background, I have just bought myself a berlingo van, I started driving one for work and just thought they are awesome, my van is not quite as new as the one at work but I still think its fantastic.

I am a scuba diver and my van is perfect for driving my gear round the UK but also perfect for kitting up in the back.

Now, my question, according to the information I have it's a 2008 model, but I can't decide if it's an M49 or M59, can anyone take a look at the photo attached and let me know.

Once I know I can look at getting a workshop manual sorted out.

Thanks in advance

John

Hi Tomcat3,

Thats brilliant, thank you.

I have one more question about the engine.

According to the paperwork the engine is a 1598cc 600 HDI LX 75. Problem is I can't find any information, I know its a 1.6 thats obvious and DI is diesel injection, I also have a turbo fitted.

Can you possibly tell me a bit more about this particular engine, or does anyone here have the same engine and have a link to a workshop manual for it.

I have the van booked in for a cam belt and water pump fitting on Thursday so hoping to ask the mechanic, but would love to get my hands on some basic information on the engine.

Thanks again

John

Good news, I managed to get the info on the engine online.

Happy days, makes it easier to find parts.

Hi John, that article is on the next generation called the B9 but the engines are similar though  not identical.

Here's what should be the closest documentation on your models' engine:

That's amazing, thank you.

Had to chuckle last night I popped the bonnet just to check the condition of the radiator and the arm to hold up the bonnet was laid on top of a piece of old rag as the plastic catch for it had snapped off, little job number 1.

I have an interesting question, what temperature should these engines get upto, I was out for a good hour Sunday night and noticed the temp never got above 70, the needle sat just above 70 and below 90, I always thought these engines ran at around 90. 

Cheers

Mine sits at 90 when fully warmed up but takes a good few miles to get there. If you stop and idle, it will drop back to 70 pretty quickly. They run very cool. Plenty of heat on the move but when stopped they drop like a stone

Brilliant that's great news, the coolant looks level and the oil is good, went round with the wd40 and got rid of the door creeking noises when opening and closing, found out what bangs in the back an easy fix, just need to put the panels back on the inside either wood or plastic all just small cosmetic bits. All in all I think I got a good deal. I'm chuffed with it.

Nice one mate. They're good wee vans. 

It looks like my last one.
