    Default City 2005: Engine opened. Suggestions needed from experts from pictures.

    Dear All

    Car had heating problems. We did everything with coolant system and then decided to go for gasket.
    Heating discussion thread: https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/cit...dance-required
    When the engine head was removed yesterday (22 July), looking at the state of affairs we decided to go with the whole and do whatever was needful.

    Based on pictures as I share on googledrive, please suggest what should be done. The project being undertaken at home by myself and my driver (who is a seasoned mechanic).

    I have decided to go for swap after checking part prices needing for rebuild. I have swapped the engine with L15A2 (i.e., iDSI) that has probably come from a Honda City or Fit Aria of Malaysian origin. Got it for Rs.26K from Mitho Khan ahata in Saddar Rawalpindi with swap of old engine. Got it complete with wiring but without gear.

    With prices this cheap, I believe it is waste of time to worry/money for rebuild of iDSI engines, and even then there is no guarantee that crank noise etc will go away.

    We fitted it at home and Alhamdulillah started with first self this very evening.

    I think I will post a separate thread for the topic for others to take help.
