  • 1.6 thp 150bhp

    Hi all, this has probably been covered numerous times in one way or another I've got the chance at a ds3 1.6thp 150bhp, its had a new engine around 3k ago. My question is, will the new engine be more reliable than the last one? I've read a lot of horror stories about them but with it having a new engine I'm hopeful it will be fine. Looking at the car it's been owned by someone off of here it has the club stickers on it.

    the newer the engine, the less issues you should have

    Depends also how many miles its done

    GDI engines can be temperemental

      I could depend in what ‘new’ means! If its a complete replacement of the short engine plus cylinder head by Citroen then it should be a good bet with potential problems limited to Injectors etc.... ask to see the invoice/details of what has been done. I love my thp155 but as Chris says its a complex motor.
