a toyota corolla sedan AE 101 [ Indus ] with a swapped 4AFE engine 5 speed started oil consumption 1 liter per 2000 kms. after compression test it was revealed that cylinder 4 is bad.
keeping the time constraint and non-availability of required oem parts it was decided to swap the engine a visit to Shershah was planned. we took along our compression tester. After 4 hours of search process and several engine inspections one 4afe with manual transmission was selected. Scrappy told us that engines are without oil and the battery is not available for compression test ' ap guarantee par engine lai jao ham baythay hayn ' bhag nahi jatay 1 engine ki waja sai.
did all possible physical inspection for wiring , sensors, plugs, tappets we negotiated for price and closed the deal. loaded up and delivered to the workshop.
next morning we dropped the car with mechanic for engine swap.
old engine pulled out , radiator was washed clean with citric acid solution, engine was washed clean, replaced the seals, spark plugs, timing belt, clutch plate, pressure plate, axle boots, all with brand new items.
engine oil, oil filter was changed and engine moved to engine bay when compression test was done the engine had ZERO compression at cylinder 4.
engine is removed from the car, we now have 2 engines & 2 days being off across Pakistan
Saturday morning we will be wrestling with the scrappy.
