you'd be best to ask on a Mercedes forum - we mod tdi's, not om642. With that said, only the europeans are doing stuff with that engine

Hey yay we thanks for you input as I am on this forum for over 6years and I know this is a VW site. But some of the comments left tells Me they know a thing or two. And I do believe me have one or two people here that work on those cars and some of them might be from Europe. By the way I have already home to other forums to ask the same question

Yup, many of us know many things, including Mercedes (I currently own 2 older ones and am up to date with pretty well any Mercedes released over the last 8 years or so)

I came up with a few options with this search, but 1 of the big challenges with that engine is that you're limited in space. Sure, you can put on a 2260 on it (like what's being offered on the 2nd link) but it's not like our cars where you can put pretty well anything on as long as the turbo itself won't hit the firewall. Intercooler piping can be upgraded also, but again, you're limited by space. Big exhaust is no problem. I would start with a GDE Tune for that truck and go from there. Having owned big torque in my life (335d), I found that there was no space to actually play with the car, and that in turn ended up frustrating.

Oh ok. I actually really appreciate that they screen users - might not have been ideal in your case, but it tends to keep the number of useless posts down.

I am not sure if this is the correct thread for my need. However, I appreciate any assistance given to me in this respect.

my Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD Limited, Manufactured in 2006, is fitted with a Mercedes Benz engine. Type OM642DE. I am in need of a short block or a long block. Please let me know how to find one. Thanks and Best regards

Harsha

The OM642 engine seems super reliable, all things considered and the pure number of them installed globally. I need to find someone locally who would like to help me with some projects on mine.

As far as I can tell, I wouldn't call the OM642 super reliable.
Oil cooler seal, injector seals, chain stretch, oil gelling, and seized engines are not uncommon enough.
Some reading on MB World might be helpful.
Adblue tank failure is another problem
Post #24 is not uncommon
