    Default performance of Sunny JX 1993 with cd 17 engine

    I am planning to by sunny jx 1993 with cd 17 diesel engine. The car is in good condition with power windwos neat and clean interior and exterior. Anyone let me know pros and cons of this car especially regarding the diesel engine. Should I buy it or not. price is around Rs 325000/=
    And if we change the engine for example then what kind of official complications will be there.

    Some of my friends have sunny 88 with CD17 engine. Only two of them are very happy. It gives good milage but a bit noisy. Some times vibration in the engine becomes very high. Specially if the engine is week.
    I dont know about the engine number change. whether it is easy or not.
    Is there some cars in this model with power windows. I have seen one or two in Islamabad but with manual windows.

    I recommend it 100%
    u just need routine maintenance provided the engine is in its own condition.

    u can judge by the sound to start with, there should be healthy Knock, then u should check Blow by getting the Dipstick out as opening the blow by hose will be a mess for your hands

    do get a test drive and check suspension, engine mounts, unusual vibrations etc.

    Which city r u from?

    When I will open the cap meant for pouring oil. There will be air or something like that coming out. In petrol cars some times we can see small small droplets of oil coming out. which makes that area dirty.

    there should not be any white or black smoke type of thing coming out from oil cap or dip stick opening.

    worst engine will throw oil along with the blow smoke i am talking about.

    Hello!
    i also proudly own JX with 1.0L engine...1.0L is to small on that big body so planned to get 1.5L engine installed.....as i said about car...u can compare it with Indus Corolla...all things are mostly same even the front look...so i think its good choice and now days where local market are getting much quicker responce and there are coming low quality car...cars like JX(B13) and AE-86,EE-90 and AE-100 are still surviving due to its excellent designing and they are all JDM in nature .....if car was all clean 325 was not a bad deal...
    Thanxxx
