Berlingo 1.6hdi common problems to look out for.
#1
Hi,

Looking at getting a 1.6hdi berlingo van with approx 80000 miles. Is there anything i should look out for and any common issues i need to take note of?

Thanks again.

Service history especially regular oil changes with the right oil.

Check the rear axle, very common to have a failure on the trailing arm bushes around 350 to fix yourself

Has the turbo been replaced at all? If it has that points to poor servicing.

You need to ensure full service history of oil/filter changes at least at interval of 12.5k miles. It would be better if history was from Citroen garage which should ensure correct oil used & correct service procedure. If no service history, I would leave it.

Agree with all the above. I bought a 1.6HDi in March 2013 with 85,000 on clock and full service history (though not all services where done by a Citroën agent). It's now got 195,000 miles on the clock and other than usual wear & tear the only problem I've had was the oil cooler that failed just over a week ago. It's now sorted and back on the road.

I'm a sameday courier. I go all over the UK hence I rack the mileage up quick. I've been averaging 70,000 miles a year but for some reason I've done more than usual over the last 12 months.
