Cambelt and Head Gasket failures in Citroen C8, Peugeot 807 and Fiat Ulysse vehicles
At Autotechniks we have been servicing and repairing Peugeot and Citroen cars since
We have now become involved with the repair of Citroen C8, Peugeot 807 and Fiat Ulysse
vehicles, collectively known as Eurovan 2, which have suffered cambelt or cylinder
head gasket failures. In order to achieve this we have designed and built a hydraulic
extraction system to overcome the problem of seized injectors. This enables us to
effectively repair the engines which do not suffer from very much damage when the
belt fails or to fit replacement head gaskets. We believe that it is a better solution
to repair the otherwise good engine than to fit a secondhand or reconditioned engine
of unknown origin and mileage.
We can offer a choice of service according to the present condition of the car. These
are as follows:-
1.) OurIn-Situ Engine Repair Service is suitable if the car has not been dismantled
other than exploratory work to ascertain the cause of the breakdown.
2.) Our Engine Repair Service should be used where the engine has been removed
from the car and has proved itself to be popular with garages around the country
as well as with the DIY owner.
3.) The third service we offer is to take over the job after the engine has been
removed by another garage who have subsequently found that they cannot complete the
job because of the seized injectors. For this service we charge the price of the
in-situ service above with a nominal additional charge for refitting the engine.We
do however reserve the right to review the price where there has been damage to the
engine or injectors by the attempts to remove them. We have seen damage which has
resulted in weakening of the injectors to the point that they break when even relatively
small amounts of hydraulic force is applied to them.
4.) Our fourth service is basically a pick up the pieces service where the injectors
are already broken. We have milling and also spark erosion equipment because the
injectors cannot be removed by milling alone. With this combination we have been
able to successfully rescue several engines which were to be consigned to the scrap
pile because of unsuccessful injector removal attempts. It is impossible to give
a price for this service without discussing the individual case so if this is your
situation please contact us
