    Is this an engine with a cam chain and not a cam belt? If so they are normally good for 100k unless there are known faults on the engine like Vauxhall had with the 2.0/2.2 (can't remember which it was) car engines a few years back. Point being have you approached Ford if its a chain and seen if you can get some or all the costs?

    Update

    Update on the pump.
    They told me today that it is spinning as should but just not putting pressure up. Apparently there is a pressure sensor/switch thing inside the pump which is replaceable so they are going to see if that's the problem. Failing that it looks like it's just bad luck on our part and they'll stick a new pump in it. At least it hasn't broken up costing new fuel lines etc...

    I have come to the thoughts that the original engine from FORD must of been a Friday afternoon build and even the robots doing it wanted to go to the pub!!!!!

    Should have it back in a couple of days...

    OK after the 350miles, how long had it been sat before you checked the level?

    It's a chain. Ford said they don't guarantee any parts over 3 years regardless of miles. Our van is on a 55 plate

    Banana engine was bullet proof.. I wont touch ford next time. In two minds to keep this one really, but after spending all this on it and it has a 12 month warranty on the lump, should i risk buying someone else's problems after sorting my own..

    Well, that's about the right time to read it - so either someone fcuked up fitting it, or there is something proper wrong with the engine from the start.

    I have my suspicion that re-conditioned usually equates to jet washed!

    I used Vege as well.
    Fully remanufactured means everything new bar the block.

    With the best will in the world...
    I've known Jag engines turd themselves after trying for a restart seconds after failing to start first time.
    I've known vauxhaul engines self district at low, mileage

    I've known Crafter engines suck themselves dry of oil through the turbo

    There WILL always be Friday night engines

    There will always be engines that are flawed by design

    There will always be engines that, self destruct after years of P/O neglect.

    Transits are IMHO no worse/better than many others
