Hi, not good with computers,born in 1950!! Not long bought a volvo v50 2012
1.6 diesel drive, it,s got 400k on the clock, it,s been fine,had to change one injector and a drive shaft,but now it,s behaving badly hard to pull away almost as if it,s got a flat spot, i,ve checked the gate valve,not stuck, I,m thinking of changing the engine(second hand one) but what engine is it? a peugeot, a ford?
will a focus fit? Any info will be appreciated(not spelling corrections please) I,m reasonably happy with the car,and can,t really afford to change it anyway so make and mend it is, Thanks in advance!!

Fuel filter caused me a lot of grief. Could it be a fuel flow problem?🤔

Hi thanks I changed the fuel filter not long ago on a service ,don,t suppose you know what engine is in my car is it the same as a ford focus ?may be easier to find locally than a v50?

There’s a lot of cheap runabouts around these days for less tha than the cost of engine purchase and transplant!

Yes I thought i,d bought one, i,m lucky in that my local recycling yard,(done lots of favors for them) are processing around 20 cars a day some on 15 plates,crazy is,nt it, anyway I
can have a car or engine gratis! but v50.s being a rarity I was looking for an alternative donor, a ford focus possibly? but wondered what engine is actually in the car ,it looks like a peugeot i,ll just keep asking around someone will know,again thanks for your input.
Paul.
