Replace 1kd-ftv

Postby Landmann on Tue, 05 Nov 2019 5:40 +0000

Hello.
I’ve bought a 2013 with a defect engine. Been serching for some guidlines but haven’t found any.
What do i have to think about in this operation?
How do I know which replacement engines fit in my car? Electric and such
For what I can see, 19000-30760 is the one for my lux?

Thanks a bunch for reading my poor english :D

Really interested to see how you go with this!!!

Start a build thread so we can follow it Landmann. I'm planning on keeping my ute for a long time and was thinking an electric conversion would be the way to go in a few years.

I've been thinking about an EV conversion for a while as well. Plenty of blogs out there going through their builds eg this landrover http://www.goingbush.com/ptev.html

When ever I have money again I'll probably buy a wrecked tesla or similar EV and swap the parts over. There is already a small number of workshops doing this in the US.

But back to your problem, is there a 2nd hand engine available where you are?

Haha no worries mate :D

The real question is, from what timespan can I search a motor with the exact same spec?
Example 2011-2015

And is the some pointers when I’m taking the old engine out and the new in

It is going to be interesting because have only done engineswaps in -60s -70s cars

Hey there Landmann

Whats wrong with the engine?
Engine block?

That's a rebore pistons rings and big ends


Can become very difficult if ecu incompatibility issues arrise with new engine so if possible consider a reputable engine reconditioning workshop
If you're going through hell, keep going.

Yes. Thats what i’m afraid of hehe

They said it had been leaking coolant and then it overheated.
Aqordingly to the toyota shop the engine was not worth saving.
But maybe it is? That could be fun, recondition the engine myself. My brother is quite good so he could assist me

I thought you aussies would have the best knowligde about this. I have a strong feeling of trust for you guys :)

:lol: Don't trust me, I've never done this.
I'm sure you have explored other options... going EV would be fun too and it would make Greta Thunburg very happy ;)

I believe there are stock of brand new crate 1KD engines from Toyota if that's in your budget but if you have the skills, time and access to specialized recon workshop you should save a stack of money going down the reconditioning track... sounds like you may have to factor in a new water/coolant pump though

Ev is not for me, in sweden it is very costly, compared to out neighbours Norway who the guverment steps in and pay you for buying envirementfrendly cars... and hard taxes for cars with high emissions.

Right now I am need for advice from ya’ll.

For what I have figured out, late 2011-2015 the 1kd-ftv i exactly identic, 19000-30760.
I have found and going to purchise an engine with 90.000 kilometers
What do you guys think I should do with it?
Oil
Filter
Timingbelt
Fanbelt
Waterpump
Walveclerence

Appreciate all info and advice :)

I guess that photos is something you like :D

Yes a new crate is over the intended budget. Three times More expensive Than the engine i found and the crates are naked. A used engine in Sweden is often complete exept for the turbo
