Which engine?

Hello all,
I'm new to the site so pardon me if I'm posting where I shouldn't be.
I have a Swift Sundance 500 Lifestyle Ducato 1.9TD...It's a 1999 (T) Reg.
Could anyone tell me which engine I have?
Is it Peugeot or Citroen or Fiat ....or something else.
I'm thinking of replacing the engine but there are so many different codes and models.
Does anyone know what engine it is exactly?
Maybe someone has the same year model van and know the details.
I only bought it a few weeks ago.
Thanks.
Moo.

I would have thought if it's a Ducato then it's definitely a Fiat....?

My 3L Fiat Ducato has an Iveco engine, but not sure what the earlier Fiat versions had.

The Fiat forum is a good forum to ask Fiat relevant questions.

According to Wikipedia it could be either Fiat or PSA depending on the engine code: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_Ducato

If the van base is a 1999 Fiat TD then the engine will be a Fiat 230A3000 if not fitted with catalytic converter, or if fitted with one a Fiat 230A4000.
There are other choices if the van does not have a turbo but you state that it does.

The PSA engine was only used in the Citroen and Peugeot versions of the Sevel vans.

Why would you like to replace the engine? Would like a more efficient engine or more power? What is your mileage and the condition of it?

I would do some extensive research before committing to an engine change. Itís nothing like as simple as just taking one out and bolting another in.

There are often lots of small differences (even on the same unit year to year) any one of which can make the swop/upgrade anything from mildly annoying to totally impossible/ludicrously expensive to work around.

Not trying to frighten you, just offer some advice to help you make an informed decision.

There should be an engine number listed on your V5, that will enable you to discover exactly which engine variant you have.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
