    Default Nissan Sunny '97 - QG18DE Swap

    Guys,

    My first experience with an engine swap; got it done in RWP Saddar with a QG18DE (bought from Mushtaq bh).
    The wiring was complete harness to harness and the ECU that came with the engine was ZZ.
    Issues:

    1. Required : OBD-II dash wiring harness as the one already installed is OBD-I and Consult-II wont thus connect to it. Looked all over but cant find the OBD-II wiring harness.
    2. RPM meter not working, the electrician (Ameer, disciple of Malang Ustaad says that a kit is required to be installed as the RPM gets its signal from the ECU).
    3. Auto choke doesnt work (esp on cold mornings when i have to warm the engine up my keeping the pedal pressed).
    4. Black smoke last week but fixed after my last visit to Ameer (after changing the throttle body, coolant temp sensor, Air flow sensor and throttle position sensor).
    5. Faqeer ustaad thinks that the ECU is a mismatch (tried 4 different ECUs but none worked other than the ZZ).
    6. Car's mileage (petrol) is around 10 km/l.

    Any suggestions/way forwards with the above 1,2,3,5 and 6 points ?

    Thanks.

    @spectra, yeah he handed me like 2-3 ECUs as well, whichever works. Dad just talked to him and he has assured that he will find it. I have also told Ameer to look for it - he is kinda grateful to me for handing him over the wiring printouts of QG18DE

    @SER_GTR Mushtaq says that his dukaan boys unplugged the ECUs and stacked them here and there... So its basically a hit and trial. Part # search would be a lot easier if somehow I knew that to which car this motor originally belonged. Anyway to know ? Right now looking for @spectra's suggested ECU

    How stupid it is for a shopkeeper in business to tell this thing. The controllers (ECU's) detached from engine and he doesn't even know which ECU is for which engine. And doing business for years.

    Why would he be held accountable, the buyer should be held accountable for making the decision. Why would you buy hassle in the first place? Demand from the seller that you need engine from which the original wiring is not detached. Examine the engine properly, check the wiring, ask gaurantee, count things like sensors, look for vacuum pipes, examine the condition of block, see for dents, see for missed accessories, and then purchase the engine. You cannnot just simply blame the seller. Its always the buyer in my humble opinion.

    And you are paying for his honesty now, what you say about that ?

    yes right.

    I am just talking about self vigilence. Not saying anything to Mushtaq. In my opinion, and as @SER_GTR always say, we should do home work before a swap.

    You are both not Normal people. You guys are geeks. Not everyone is like that and should not be assumed like that while giving forum advice.
