Mazda bongo 2.5 turbo diesel - M reg You won’t be able to start the engine and it will need trailering away! Had loads of money spent on it including a refurbished engine but the engine now has a fault. The engine struggles to start and when it does start, there’s a prominent slapping/knocking noise coming from the upper middle of the engine. When you rev the engine it gets worse and then cuts out and then is difficult to re-start. Not sure what it could be, it may be something simple it also may not. I’ve had a quote for a secondhand engine (via eBay seller) at £600. I just don’t have that money (plus cost for oil, coolant, fitting etc) at hand and have lost patience with it. The body work is also tatty (see pics) with some bad repairs carried out where I can only assume the previous owner must have dragged it down a wall and repaired, but this never bothered me. Good points:11 months MOTNew windscreen (crack picked up on mot)New suspension all round (shock absorbers, bushes, roll bar links)New radiator Some new coolant hosesRefurbed brake callipers all roundNew discs, pads and shoes all roundNew wiper blades all roundNew alternatorNew batteryKia Sportage wheels fitted with new tyres all roundSeats re-coveredCarpets dyed midnight blueNew car matsUpgraded speakers all round (vibe)New Bluetooth radio head unitLow coolant alarm Gearbox has had new oil & filterPop top works and with no ripsHas dickie seat behind passenger seatUnderneath looks pretty solid and has been welded/waxoyl’d by previous owner. The rear of the van has a wooden floor (just need lino on it with a 3/4 rock and roll bed placed on top. The wood for the seat base has been cut to size. Just need foam, upholstering and bolting to the frame and then the frame bolting down. V5 present and is only paperwork I have for it. 2 keys. I’m not open to silly offers, If needs be I’ll sit and save up for a secondhand engine and then sell it as a running project for which you can surf eBay to see what they’re going for, or I’ll strip it for spares. To reiterate - you won’t be able to start the engine and it will need trailering away! Bank transfer on collection
