Punto Evo 1.4 MJ engine failure

Cutting a long story short the multijet unit failed on my Evo 1.4 turbo and has damaged the engine beyond repair. I am looking to replace it with a second hand unit but unsure of what will fit, the engine in it is a 135 BHP 955A2 one, which seem almost impossible to get. I can get a 188 engine but worried about it fitting and marrying up to the gearbox and the ECU. anybody got any thoughts? It's a 2010 year car.

Re: Punto Evo 1.4 MJ engine failure

Hi.and welcome.

Im confused by the terminology.

Multijet points at it being diesel..
But you also say 1.4..?

So.. how is it damaged.. run on a weak mixture..detonation damage?

@burrowsdeano has a LOT of experience with these engines.

I use NSB Autos in Upham, Hampshire.
Neil and Shane are great there and very honest.
They've just done the Multiair unit on my Punto.
