    Default Civic 95 engine swap

    Dear members.

    So I have a weak stock carby D15 installed in my car, and after the gasket is gone 2nd time, the mechanic has proposed that I change the engine. As for the mechanic, he is considered quite reliable in the market.

    Now since the engine needs to be changed, I am thinking to jump to D15b dual vtec. I talked to the mechanic's engine guy in shershah, and he says engine with wiring and ecu for 70k.

    Considering your experiences, please guide me if thats a worthy option, and/or give suitable suggestions. Will it increase the resale value of the car, or devalue it? From what I think, the value will be increased of the car, but to those who know the potential of the dual vtec (correct me if im wrong).

    The guy also gave below options.

    1. D15b non vtec for 55k
    2. some efi engine (probably d15b non vtec) which will be combined with current carburetor in some way (if I head him correctly). Dont exactly recall the price for this option.

    Looking forward for expected assistance. Also let me know if maintenance costs will increase with vtec.

    Regards.

    If you want You can see Honda engines at this persons place in gharibabad person is Imran Mannan 0321-8221732, 0347-2000300. Have heard good things about him but he is quite expensive. Atleast you can get the price quote from him over phone or visit to check out the engine and take the price quote in person. He also swaps the engines.

    I am facing problem with my civic 93. I replaced carburetor engine with EFI d15b and made alteration in the carby fuel tank for fixing fuel pump in it. However, as long as the fuel tank remains filled with petrol, the car runs smooth but as soon as the needle of fuel comes down to half tank, the car starts missing and sometime engine gets switched off. I have approached many of my friends and mechanics but of no use. A mechanic advised me to change the fuel pump which i did on the same very day and car went smooth for few months but now again i am facing the same problem. I went again to the same mechanic who is now telling me to change the carby fuel tank with EFI fuel tank. I went to Sultan da Kho Rawalpindi today and found EFI fuel tank for civic 93 worth Rs. 8K. I am even willing to buy that EFI fuel tank but afraid of if it won't solve my problem.
    Can any expert would like to help/advice me in this regard.

    Wait. Is gharibabad that area in laalo khet? There's a shop there with glass windows behind of which neat and shiny engines are stocked.

    I visited that area first before going to shershah. The shops there didn't have dual vtec. One guy had one dual vtec, but condition was not good.

    Nevertheless, will find out from that contact tomorrow.

    That glass shop was on the main road. I went in the alley to a road inside where there were 3-4 more shops. Checked them all. This was on 25th March.

    ok after searching around, here are the recommendations I found via Google. Credit to original posters.

    - Use fuel system cleaner (which I assume is poured into the tank)
    - Clean fuel filter
    - probably a bad pump, the pump is cooled by the gasoline and when the fuel level gets too low it gets hot, and when the pump is going bad, it will usually show its signs when low on gas
    - also check any rubber hoses for leaks (if there are any in the tank). Its possible that there is a crack in a pipe, and it starts sucking in air when not submerged in fuel, i.e., when fuel level drops.

    when you swap efi engine .. you have change the fuel tank or issues you get is fuel cut off on corners and un even roads

    now as you mentioned you have done some work ..try it running with low fuel on turns ..if its bogs down or goes dead means your alteration didt worked ..... but if its does not then we have some other issue

    then do as maverik mentioned above

    as far as the replacement .... 96 and 98 civic fuel tank fits bolt on to 95 civic ....

    so buy that without letting them know as if you are in trouble otherwise they will charge you more

    O2 and some sensor at the back was changed; oil cap changed, rusted exhaust manifold cover was provided (not sure if it can be painted or it should be cleaned with sandpaper); he also promised to provide the 2-1 exhaust pipe when collecting my engine (tomorrow or later).

    I would appreciate if you guys can provide contacts of good electricians, who would be able to come over and do all the electric work. Should be reasonable.

    Imran (the engine guy) also gave contact of some electrician Nadeem (north nazimabad), who does good work and charges around Rs. 5,000.
