Default Engine of Honda Civic '99 and '01?

'99 has a 1.6-lt engine while '01 has a 1.7

Is it okay to put that '01 engine to the older '99 car?

How much do used engine and transmission cost if they're under 30 miles?

They're both sedan (4-door) and automatic. My Civic 1999's engine is busted and I need a new one. I know someone who has a used Civic 2001 engine that has less than 30 miles in it and I'm wondering if I could put that in mine. There's no swapping...

Mine is lx, but I don't know the other one =/ But I could find it out... My head gasket is broken! Twice! Now's the second time and we're guessing that the head might be cracked, too. My mechanic hasn't finished diagnosing it yet and I'm just asking here, anticipating that my head really is cracked.

The 2001 Civic got in a wreck and turned over, but the engine's supposedly undamaged. I'm thinking of getting it because the mileage is low, but if it's really bad then I might have to reconsider.

No, it's not ok.

I just told you it's not ok, but you seem persistent. The d17 has different wiring, trans, axles, ecu...the whole 9 yards. They even switched to coilpacks and returnless fuel lines. You're talking about rewiring the whole front end, which I doubt you can do based on you're current knowledge on these motors, making custom mounts, converting from a hydro trans to cable...bla bla bla...the new d17 engines are completely different than the pre '00 d series engines other than a few internal parts. I have no idea why Honda even decided to categorize the engine in the d series family.

If you honestly want to do it then go ahead. Make sure you get the correct schematics for all the electrical wiring.

why are you wanting to put that motor in it?? There are other motors that would fit in that car much better. You need to be more specific... What model is the car? manual/automatic? And what is the reason you are wanting to swap motor

Do you know exactly why your motor is "busted" will it not start or what's goin on?

I would try to find a stock motor for your car... but what model is it? ex, lx, dx, or si. and what model is the 2001. It all matters lol

the two motors are completley different. Your motor is a d16y7, they are known for the head gasket going out, so when you say its busted im not sure if thats whats wrong since u didn't really say. But just so you know the 2001 is the worst year for the civic. Look it up.. i would not recommend using that motor as a swap. Youd be better off getting a d16y8, one of the best motors honda ever made.
