mk5 escort engine help/swap

Recommended Posts

Hi all just joined have a mk5 escort van 1.4 

not sure what engine it has at the mo I know it’s a cvh but what one.

if anyone can shed a light and help me out would be muck appreciated. 


Looking at doing a engine swap. Was thinking about 1.8 zetec from a focus but looking to be a fair amount of work. 

Is there any other engine threat will go straight in without the hassle of new loom ect. 


Here a photo of my current engine ( nothing pretty 😩)


dose anyone know if this is the basic cvh engine?

I'm not sure and can't remember but if your van is 1993 then it might have a single point injectorunder the air filter housing, earlier cars had a carb (like my dads old Orion 1.4 equipe). otherwise it looks the same as that.
