    Default Engine Removal

    My vectra's waterpump gave up yesterday resulting in the cam belt slipping and killing the engine. So I am wanting to stick another engine in.

    Its the Z18XE engine , is there are 'hot to' guide on removal of these engines. I have good experience of taking out Rover engines, just none of Vauxhalls lol.

    Also, can I just fit another same year z18xe engine straight into the car, or will I need all the ecu etc etc?

    Thanks in advance

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    A few of us changed Justin's 1.8 when it went bang big style (5 inch hole in the block) on the way home from a meetup once.

    Certainly not a howto, but info is here http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=131435 (along with lots of goofy pics of us doing it).

    To be honest, the easiest way is to replace the engine itself but use all your old ancillaries, ecu's etc then it should just start and run. If you start swapping ecu's and stuff you'll need a fairly major tech2 session to get it all working again.
