    Default From CD17 to CD20 in NIssan Sunny B13

    A good friend of mine has a 1993 B13 Nissan Sunny 1.7D which is driven 270K kms with one overhaul so far. Now the engine was showing signs of weaknes so we decided to put in a new one.
    We went to Ahaata Mithu Khan in Saddar Rawalpindi to get the swap done from the shop of Mr. Asghar Khan who only deals in Nissan old engines and parts.
    Beleive me this guy and his technicians are like Encyclopedias of Nissan and they also helped me when i converted my own 1988 model B12.

    When we inquired about price of a CD17 assembly, it was 14K because it is no more in production anywhere and supply is short, so we thought of putting in a newer model CD20 which is 2000cc and it came in Sunny from 1995 to date.

    Here is a pic of the engine




    From CD17 to CD20 in NIssan Sunny B13 -485456



    As tempting as it was to get in a turbo version, we decided to put in NA one because my friend is not a petrol head like me and some maintenance lapses are always expected from him

    so we bought this
    From CD17 to CD20 in NIssan Sunny B13 -485457



    Price for the whole conversion including gear box, genuine Nissan mounts and gear levers etc. was 23.5K including labour charges and lubricants.

    The car has become a rocket, fuel consumption is 16 in city without AC in last 2 days.
    I raced a Land Cruiser (New one) and made him cry literally at Constitution avenue

    1st gear change at 45
    2nd at 90
    3rd at 120
    4th at 155
    and so on and so forth

    And thats all coming from a Diesel.
    Any corolla 2.0D with an attitude should not try a friendly drag with this car now
    Take my word, its a monster in disguise.
    As Hasnain would say about his Liana "Tera Nasha"
    I am also addicted to this engine in this car

    Noise is at par with toyota in idle noise. better sound on revs, as nissan always has.

    @Arid
    Two cars had engines swapped in one day. The other one took 4-1/2 hours it was a B14 and CD20 wasto be replaced.

    Working on twoc ars and finishing off in one day is just amazing, and its much like "Do it right first time"

    Good work Spectra.
    CD-17 has a built in flaw, it catches too much of heat and seldom causes engine seizure.
    Wow man, you got Tubo CD20.
    how did u determine that this engine isnt worn out much.
    Does he give any kinda guarantee??

    @31aDeelz

    I used CD17 myself for 5 years and my father in law is still using the same car with same engine without any problem or heat up.

    Its colling system require bleeding everytime you open the radiator cap and thats prety much it but our learned mechanics decleared it as failure saying gaddi garam hundi hai

    About Guarantee

    our kabaraiya gives one week replacement guarantee

    Spectra, i appreciate your knowledge about Diesel engines, speciallas Nissans'.
    I would be too glad if you could highlight few most important things to do to avoid heating up engine.
    I myself own Nissan 2.OD 2001 model, and my greatest fear is i may harm this beauty by over heating it.

    So, am i expecting a post from you as to how can one keeo his engine away from heatups.
    That would be very helpful indeed for all car owners.
    Thnks buddy

    @aDeel

    CD20 also has a bleeding valve to get air out of the cooling system.

    Tats the only thing to take care ff apart from regular maintenance and keeping the coolant level in place in the coolant reservoir.

    Ahaan, bleeding valve.
    Never heard of that though
    Sure i'll ask my mechanic to figure out what exactly this is. Hope he doesnt take the day off to cast vote.
