There's a Toyota Corolla 2.0D 2004 Model. It's engine requires overhaul (as told by previous owner as I haven't seen the car as yet). I have few queries regarding the car and your help will be highly appreciated.
1- Is 2C engine worth overhauling? Will it be trouble free if overhauled properly? Or it'll keep giving problems?
2- If overhauling is worth it, any recommended/good mechanic who can do the job?
3- I read some articles after googling which stated 3C and 3C-TE are powerful yet economical engines compared to 2C, true?
4- If 3c, 3C-TE are good options then expected cost of swap?
5- Are 1cd-ftv and 1ad-ftv available in markets? If yes, are they good? I read that 1ad gives head gasket problems.
Your help will be appreciated @Xulfiqar @SER_GTR @spectra @Haroon_Tarar @afnan.bashir
