    Exclamation z22se replacment please expert advice

    Hi all.
    I want your advice because this my fist post.
    Iíve 2003 vectra with z22se engine automatic transmition
    I have a problem with my gear box which make knocking between gears and delay after releasing brake pedal so the local dealer said the it needs fix and will cost too much so I decided to replace the gear box.
    But on the other hand despite my engine is running but I have a big problem in oil consumption. And too high fuel consumption 6 km/l and sometimes 5.9 km/l so I am thinking about replacing the engine with gearbox so I can have good price for both together.
    I read that z22yh is more powerful and more economic than z22se my question is it possible to change the engine to z22yh on the same ecu if not what I need change to do this
    Please your advice because in our country we they donít have an idea about this replacement and they said that it will work on the same ecu

    Hi mate, no its not so easy dropping the YH in, plus the YH has all the faults of the SE but with its newer type fuel system it has even more faults. The high oil consumption will be down to faulty oil scraper rings, its a common fault on the 2.2.

    thank u man. but I want to is it normal to have this fuel consumption its about 6 KM/L
    I think it is too much the original specification from opel of this car says that it must have 8.5 km/L at urban use.

    I do all my driving in the City centre, constant stop start. My MPG is 27.1, if my maths is correct thats 9.58 km/L. All I could say is check your air filter's clean as I guess its pretty dusty in Amman. I good service, with a new filter, oil and possibly plugs should see your km/L rise.
