Hi peeps!
As you may have seen in my welcome thread,I'm now the owner of a 1996 pajero mini VR-II auto. It was listed as having a misfire however on further inspection I found that the airbox is full of oil and it's running on 2 cylinders :(.

Is there anything I can do to diagnose the problem, worst case scenario I guess would be piston rings/turbo.

Any help would be appreciated, I'm no stranger to working on pajeros but only 2.8 diesels!

Have you ran a compression check on the cylinders? If you've lost compression on one and got a intake full of oil that suggests cracked or damaged piston rings/piston.

Haven't run a compression check yet but that's first thing on the list today, I'm guessing piston rings are pretty terminal?

it has 188,000km on the clock... so probably just about wore out

Compression is low on 2 and 3 cylinder, sucks air through the dipstick tube if the dipstick is removed when it's running :(

Day, I'm gonna need a new engine if you got one kicking around?

Might be worth taking the head off see if it's just the head gasket. If not you may still be able to salvage your engine. Depends on the damage to the piston bore and availability of new pistons and rings.

Personally I'd take the head off, worse case you'll need a new engine anyway so no harm in looking to see if yours can be saved.
:)

Good luck

New piston rings are around $100, oversized pistons and a rebore who knows. In addition to all the new gaskets e.t.c

I'm on the trail of a second hand engine and turbo anyway, should be running by next Sunday just in time for the Xmas snow!
