    Default Lancer 2005 Engine SWAP

    Hello guys, AoA


    I have a Mitsubishi Lancer 2005 Model. Its engine has now started giving me problem on CNG and petrol as well. I went to Mitsubishi Islamabad and they gave me an estimate of Rs. 45,000/- for overhalling the engine and replacement of some parts.


    I need your expert opinion weather I go for overhalling of engine OR go for engine SWAP. My friend told me to go to peshawar and get change the 1.3 engine with some 1.6 engine which will give me more power and there will be no CNG problem. He also told me that I can get a good 1.6 engine within the above mentioned cost.


    Please give some suggession and also if I go for engine SWAP, which engine will suit my Lancer 2005.





    Regards,


    Ismail

    I think a swap would be much better, a overhaul in only four years old car seems odd to me.

    seems odd to me too four year old lancer needs overhaul..... anyways personally i wud go for swap... get it swapped with 1.6 lit isnt a bad idea... moreover if u want to overhaul it in my opinion get it checked from other mechanics i mean if u plans for overhaul do take second opinion too.

    I've heard that DMMC charges A LOT when it comes to getting their services, especially engine overhauls and stuff.....I say get a few more estimates from reputed mechanics in the city...If the estimate for the overhaul doesn't go down significantly, then go for the swap....If you are not into cars or are busy with you studies/job and stuff...Its better to sell out your car and look for better options...swapping might get "messy" if you're not qualified and/or don't get in touch with good mechanics.....

    2005 Lancer And A Swap...!! Well Its Possible To Change The Assembly....!! Since Overhaul Here Don't Go COrrect And Cause Serious Issues Later...!! So Thats Why Overhaul Is Not Preffered But As Its 2005 Model So Original Parts Can Be find Out Easily But Still A Good Low Mileage Assembly Is Always My Preference Any Time...!!


    If You Find Same Like Assembly In Which You Just Need To Replace Engine Block...Rest Goes Same Then Go For It....Else If You Need To Get Whole Thing Changed With New ECU Wiring Then i Suggest An Overhaul From Some Expert...

    I would say the years don't matter as much as the mileage on that engine. What if the engine's done 250,000 Kms in 4 years! That probably would need an overhaul.

    It's been a year for my Cultus and I've driven in 50,000 Kms! So in 3 years I would probably need an overhaul.

    I would also say get a 1.6 engine but make sure it's in good condition. Have it checked by another mechanic because the one selling you would probably try to rip you off. A kabuli engine would be a good option.
