Mechanical / Engine replacement 4BD1
« Last post by Rusty Gunn on September 21, 2021, 04:38:09 PM »
Hi all,

Grim news... It looks like I may need a new engine or a re-build for the RFSV.

I carried out an oil and filter change and fouled up somehow. I added the requisite amount of oil but didn't look at the dipstick. I ran it for a short time and it warmed up and appears to have seized. I thought it was battery related and so the next day when cool, I checked the oil and was shocked to find it barely touched the bottom of the dipstick despite having added the proper amount. I topped it up and it started again normally but after warming up the same thing happened but when I began to hear some expensive-sounding knocking noises I shut it down before it stopped itself. I guess I'm now contemplating an engine replacement if the big end bearing or whatever has developed chips which have travelled around.

Any (constructive) comments are appreciated. Including advice on where to go for a new donk!

Thanks gents.

Just use the same 15/40 you have for your engine.  It's as per the Army specs.

Cheers.

Dont use EP 90 gear oil it will kill your gearbox by eating the phosphor bronze components - so if that diff oil you put in has an ep90 component you may be headed for trouble.

The manual says engine oil so just use that.
