Old For New Engine Replacement 1.4 Tdci Duratec Mk6 Fiesta

2 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Thanks in advance, any help would be greatly appreciated. Unfortunately the other day my drive belt started to fray, it subsequently got tangled round the lower pulley and snatched the timing belt. After replacing both belts looks like it's trashed the engine as now it's very flat and total loss of power. Be warned the drive belt cost £12 and so for my questions: I've purchased a replacement engine, same year and same spec complete with all ancillaries. Mechanics part is no problem but the electrics/ ecu bit is worrying me. What parts do I need to keep original from my trashed engine ref sensors, pumps etc to avoid any kind of remapping? I just want to take the old one out, swap the bits round and bolt a new one in and have it run. Any advice would be much appreciated. Old mechanic, new cars are a bit complicated!

Thanks,

Jason

I would have thought that if you keep the old ecu that's all you would have to keep electronic wise, if you use the one on the new engine you will have to get the immobiliser transponder reprogrammed and the keys done, I'm not 100% sure but I can't see why simply attaching the old ecu to the new engine will cause a problem.
