    Default Engine Swap

    We have corolla 1998XE. Car's engine is still sealed buy sound is very loud and it has started to burn oil (no leakage), there is no smoke from behind. It consumes like 2 liter extra to complete 3000 Km running.

    I don't want to spend on overhaul, mechanic have given me estimate of like 30,000 + so I was thinking of swapping engine from 1300 to 1500? Can you guys guide me how much will it cost me? and do you have any good mechanic for it Karachi. Let me know if you guys have any good knowledge about this car + engine.

    Thank you!

    I agree with you on the last part (y) as I said I want to keep this car and I am really not interested in overhaul. I will wait for further suggestions from people who live in here and can guide me through this process. Thanks!

    A good swap will cost you around 50 to 70+ thousands. Good quality Engines are not easily available and you need a good mechanic to chose right engine and proper wiring. Swaps are not easy and keep in mind khuwari of month or so. If u have a good mechanic go for it. My mechanic is a bit expensive but he is good.
    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go.

    Better for a swap. Now decide you want a 1.3 or 1.6 engine..

    I think you should go for overhaul. Your mechanic is demanding too high. You just need to change the rigns and valve seals and may be some valves if damaged but not more than that.

    The labour for this kind of work is about 3.5-5k and else would be the cost of parts and khiradiya's work.

    My 4efe engine was started consuming oil and also gave smoke. I just replaced the rings along with valve seals and timing belt and some other small parts that cost me around 4-5k rps from Gawalmandi Rawalpindi. The complete work cost me around 13-15k including oil and filter etc. It is about 1 year now and my car is running perfectly.
    In Karachi I think the prices of the parts are less than in Rawalpindi.

    So you should get quote from other mechanics and also khiradiyas for head works and go for overhaul.

    Thanks.

    What difference is there in wet/dry readings if valve seals are shot and everything else is OK.

    Wet reading will go a bit lower than dry if valve seals are shot

    I am aware of that but i always want my things done not perfectly but trouble free. If i am going for an over haul i will simply change all the valves + seal and rings. Apart from that, i think 1.3 has very less pick compared to 1.6. i have driven both cars and comparably 1.6 is far better.
    My car's body is quite solid so i am not looking to sale it and i will hopefully swap engine to 1.5 or 1.6.

    I might go for it, it is a good idea though. However, as far as i know, my car's main beacon is very loud and valves seals and rings are worn out (y) I am not looking for a jugar here i need a complete solution.
