Hi, I wondered if some one could advise me if it is possible to fit a 1.3 engine into a 1.5 car ?The block appears to be the same (I also have a 2004 1.3), but I would like to know if this has been done before, the 1.5 has self destructed after cam belt failure and I have been unable to source a replacement engine, although there are several 1.3 engines available.



Regards

There were a lot more 1.3 Models produced than the 1.5 so can imagine why your having problems finding 1. You should still be able to get a replacement from a Kia Dealer but expect to pay Big Bucks. However the 1.3 is virtualy the same Engine i belive and should fit and be easier to find. Not to mention cheaper than a new 1.5 Replacement.
