    Default Toyota Corolla 2.0d Engine Help

    There's a Toyota Corolla 2.0D 2004 Model. It's engine requires overhaul (as told by previous owner as I haven't seen the car as yet). I have few queries regarding the car and your help will be highly appreciated.

    1- Is 2C engine worth overhauling? Will it be trouble free if overhauled properly? Or it'll keep giving problems?

    2- If overhauling is worth it, any recommended/good mechanic who can do the job?

    3- I read some articles after googling which stated 3C and 3C-TE are powerful yet economical engines compared to 2C, true?

    4- If 3c, 3C-TE are good options then expected cost of swap?

    5- Are 1cd-ftv and 1ad-ftv available in markets? If yes, are they good? I read that 1ad gives head gasket problems.

    Your help will be appreciated @Xulfiqar @SER_GTR @spectra @Haroon_Tarar @afnan.bashir

    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    Go for the rebuilt but dont compromise on original parts this rebuilt will cost you more than 120k if original parts are used if not using the genuine parts then the cost will drop to 50 k but dont expect much from it. No 1cd - ftv engine's are not available in the market nor 1fd are. So stick to the 2c and get it repaired.

    1. Engines are precise machines. not sure what you intend to over haul but I am sure the mechanic wont have or even if he has a torque ratchet , wont use it. You can hardly IMO restore engine to its original specs. Even if you replace head gasket the head bolts should be tighten in specific pattern and with exact torque. Rest of the story does not even need to be said.

    2. For toyota you may try Toyota workshop but they are rip off i suppose and quality is not as it should be. Its toyota afteral @syncview has great deal of experience with yotas but not sure if he has overhauled it or not.

    In an ideal world the rebuild should work fine !

    unfortunately that is not the case.

    Our mechanics are NOT qualified to do this job nor are people comfortable dishing out the cash required to change ALL the required parts.

    Find yourself a replacement engine; it is the most cost effective solution.

    The best is to swap with 2C kabli engine uncut and never opened. Rebuild in Pak is a headache. No mechanic is capable of engine rebuilds. The tolerances require micro level machining which is not possible by a kharadia.

    It is very much advisable that you go for kabli engine. I have gone through this rebuild phase with my Nissan CD20 and found that it is totally useless in long run. Ultimately I had to put in Kabli engine.

    assuming you are in lahore and still trying to figure out what to do swap or overhaul. I suggest goto bund road. there are few bus body makers inside one of the large sheds,. there is a mechanic called diesel chacha (am forgetting his real name) specialising in diesel engine rebuilt i posted a link over forum for his address & name. show your vehicle to him, he may decline to chk for sedan small engines but if you are sweet talker you can spell bound him. He will precisely rebuild the engine with parts supplied by you. he will give you list of items & will take care of machining & reassembly. He sends pump to cummins shop in lahore ( they send it to KHI ) for rebuilt & calibration.

    so far 2 of the PW members managed to get the rebuilt done from him and very happy 1 was Toyota Kz engine other was a mitsubishi pajero 3600 unless they both wish to share the experience i cannot disclose their IDs without permission

    Go for overhaul. Use good quality parts and get it done from an expert. Usually mechanics ask you to replace engine instead of getting it rebuilt, So, what is the guarantee you will get excellent quality engine from Junkyard? Why would it be in junkyard if it was perfectly working? Even if you take an expert mechanic with you, still there are 100% chances of getting ripped off. He will check compression, compression is good, you buy that engine, fit that in car, later you come to know it's gasket and other seals are leaking. Your engine shall be opened to get them replaced. So, why take the risk?

    do some research and check how many buses & trucks swap engines they always choose rebuilt. @ch.talal thank you for being positive about rebuild and your insight for swaps. - if those people start swapping engine every year what will be their taxes and profits and how long before the bus is a paid off asset

    the stock engine swap is recommended by tin box tree shed mechanics to make money - i suggest contact @syncview for diesel overhaul estimate in lahore

    the problem is two fold,

    1 is that the average shop mechanic in Pakistan is no longer interested in working hard, they are more interested in hardly working and shifting the blame.

    2 is that the customers want everything for the lowest cost without considering "value" - they shop around for the cheapest made in china parts and then shop around for the lowest bidder that will perform the assembly. This is bad practice and always ends in disaster.

    u need to be sure that the engine is shot and it needs an over haul. usually 2C dont give up that easily. proper sequential verification and fixing of certain parts like nozzles, valve clearance, fluids and filters and glow plugs with recommended / oem stuff should improve the existing 2C without a over haul.
