2.5

Potentially looking for an inexpensive 2.5 TD or NA Diesel for parts. Tearing into mine shortly, and as this is the shop truck I'm not looking to spend much to keep it running in the short term. She will get the full frame-off rebuild treatment next year after the other projects, but the smoke continues and I fear the worst.

Any leads are appreciated.

I'm guessing there are top-end issues. White smoke at idle, varying between moderate to cloud cover, gray smoke with compression, oil into the air filter, and after running a top-end cleaner i've now got a leak near the oil pump and it tried to run away on me when pulling into the shop. Low power and the fact that the PO overfilled the oil by 2qt doesn't bode well either. I'm expecting worn rings/pistons as the engine has a tick under 130K on the odo, lifter seals at least.

Cleaned up the shop yesterday so that I can dig into it a little today and tearing it apart next week. I'm not well versed in the weak spots on the Td as all my other engines are 300Tdi, but everything I've heard says there are potential block issues to be concerned about.

People talk about the early 2.5 td engines having weaknesses but I have seen them do well over 200K with no issues when looked after properly. Oil in the air filter will obviously cause it to run away on you. I would check compression and if ok re time the injection pump before giving up on it.
