    Default Engine swapping in 2006 corolla.

    Hi everyone.

    I have a 2006 model corolla 2.0d saloon. it's a good car but these days it's preferable to drive petrol/cng because diesel is very expensive.
    Is it advisable to get my engine changed from 2.0d to 1.6 or 1.8?
    If I do this, will the car do good on cng?
    Will the car give any mechanical problems later on?

    Please help.

    best option is to exchange it with an xli/gli or altis.

    2.0D is economical depends on it maintenance.Our 2.0D did 680kms in a tank MashaAllah on highway and very econmical in city drive as well.All I use is Mobil oil frm Mobil the imported varient .Also get the Cams adjusted if it has not been done frm last 20k kms.
    Swaping is not at all good option in ur case

    Resale Would Get Down And Hassles Won't Worth As Its Not As Easy As It Looks Or Some People Shows....!!
    Its Better To Sell It And Buy An ALTIS Or SE Saloon If You Need One

    Thankyou all of you....

    it gives very good mileage in the long run but it beats the **** out of me in the city...
    I'd rather drive a civic 1.8 or corolla altis.
    I don't want to swap for performance, just need economy, that's it!


    And plus it's useless to sell it right now. I can't buy an altis right now. and if I sell this car, the only 2 cars I'd be left with would be city 08 or corolla gli 06 07. altis would be out of question, se saloon would be too old... what do you have to say about this people?

    thanks.
