Highest mileage Puma?

I've owned my puma from new 1999,so 19 years.
The mileage was 161,000 before it lost compression on one of the cylinders.
I've just had another engine fitted so hopefully, it will last me a few years if I don't sell it next year.

Puma running rough?

The engine is knackered,no compression on cylinder 2. where is the leak? On piston or valve side? Try to pressurise the second cylinder and watch where is the compression going. If it is the sump, it is the piston/rings that are leaking. If it is escaping to inlet, it is inlet valves, if it is goin...

I would contact Ian G on here. He breaks Puma's, and I believe he can tell you what the engine mileage is of the cars they come out of.
Thanks YOG!

I didn't think the actual block had anything to do with aircon setup but I could be wrong? There were definitely different blocks throughout production and different ECUs but it was my understanding (never tested) that you could do a like for like swap of the actual engine Thanks Red, i hope so, I ...

Yea I think any 1.7 engine will fit in :) but engines from cars with air con do have a different power steering set up. But that can be swapped over easily enough I think? So be wary of that. But try and make sure that the engine you are putting in is in good nick :) and whist its out replace the c...

Ok update, The engine is knackered,no compression on cylinder 2. I dont think its a good idea for me to waste money having it fixed as its done 160,000 and i don't know what damage has been caused. So i think my best option is to find another engine to drop in. My puma is a 1.7 Year 1999, so would a...

Puma running rough?

It's at the garage,breakdown guy said it's misfiring and said it could be the coil pack as it was sparking ok.
Worse case scenario, what if the engine was knackered on one of the cylinders, what would be the cost?

Could be the coil pack.. Probably still worth checking spark plugs Thanks Red, I removed all the plugs and leads and tested with a multimeter, seemed OK. One plug was caked black in the 2nd cylinder but my car does burn a lot of oil as its done 160,00. Anyway I cleaned them all up hoping for a slig...

Well from what I' reading just now, 61 translates in to only 1 actual colour, might still be worth checking in with the parts / service dept with your reg to be sure.

Thanks Red.
Which one is the paint code on the Vin plate?
The 6th one down on the left of the Vin plate reads 61.
But a lot of those different shades in that list have 61 in 😁
