Question about Citroen Cars & Trucks
FIXED ? PROBABLY IF YOU GOT ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY TO HAVE IT FIXED COULD BE A BROKEN CAM BELT

Diesel or petrol?
If it has overheated in diesel too expensive - replace with 2nd hand motor
If petrol sometimes heads warp and can be replaced but pistons may need to be replaced as well.
If camshaft belt breaks it is rare to take out all cylinders, sounds more like severe overheating. if so pistons usually seize then let go but rings remain in grooves letting compression into sump and blows oil out extremities like timing case and rear main seal at gearbox . Can be tested by pouring 25mm of engine oil in cylinder then re-testing compression> if rings compression will increase. If valves the compression will not change. Good luck

OK!... did you do a cylinder 'leak down test'?.. .if not, do it! If any 'unacceptable' leakage, have the head REDONE! NOW!.. you must BE SURE the valve timing is accurate!... Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.

Testimonial: " thats what i do on all the cars i do so thought i would cheak thanks for you reply as iam doning it this weekend thank you"
How about some history.. like was it running OK and then was parked, and later would not start? or has it been sitting? or quit while driving down the road?? Mileage? Does it run good now? If so I would recommend using Chevron Techron Fuel additive to clean up the injectors and back of the intake valves. That could help if indeed the valves are a problem. Some repair shops have a Motorvac or BG Injector cleaning/ intake manifold cleaning that would possibly help that.
