What about the 1.6 I-DTEC in the civic and CRV?

Or the 1.5 in the Jazz?

The trajectory of the N Series is bizarre - it's a sort of Incredible Shrinking Engine.

Despite all the the 'Earth Dreams' guff, 1.6 is the same unit as the 2.2 but with much reduced bores and stroke. The nearest I can think of is the cut-down N47D16 B** used in some BINIs and also sold to Bob.

The 1.5 mostly used in Indian Jazzes and Citys is an 76mm bore N series with a 5.5mm shorter stroke.

The N Series reputation is not good. Someone close to the matter told me that they're unlikely to last 100K miles without requiring major work.

Is the 1.6 an N series? I would have considered it to be fine.

Barry, what's with putting D*** on every post? Are you auditioning for the new BILL & TED film?

They recycled the old Isuzu lump for 1,700cc and then their own 2.2 which was a total disaster initially and must have cost them a fortune in warranty claims.

Not forgetting the Rover L-series (which I just did).


The Circle L is everything a diesel ought to be, before the Germans tried to use them as a tool of world domination.

Technically unambitious, versatile and ancient in origin, and quite possibly indestructible, it's the Borgward D4M or Perkiness 4.108 of its time.

The Circle L's ancestry goes back to the Bellett engine of 1963, five years younger than the Perkiness 4.99, which remained in production until 1992, and possibly later.
