Hi everyone I've recently purchased a Skoda Octavia 2007 1.9tdi BXE engine, the car has low milage 68000 miles. I have read recently about the BXE engine throwing a rod out the block and s**t myself. If I replace the bearings will this future proof the engine using genuine bearings and bolts, are the new bearings modified? To help prevent this from happening?

Welcome to the forum.

After being prompted. ;)

This is a new forum layout which is owned by a company last year that doesn't give a dam with loads of bugs which have been reported in the new thread. There is no TDI Wiki at the moment or original similes which they refuse to install. It doesn't show the car spec/location.

Add your car specs to your signature that will show on every post you make.

Car spec now shows not for all members.

This has been talked about many times.

I've made a poll which no one has posted in, there are a few votes and comments.

Do you like the new forum features?

Wiki pages have been restored as of 7th December, I asked where is the link it should be on top of the main forum.

We have a Seat Skoda sub forum for you posts.
