Fitting a new Bongo Engine
If you need to replace your Mazda Bongo engine, don’t worry, it’s not too pricey!
We have seen companies offering a full supply and fit service for under £1,000.
Engine fitting Procedure
- Remove and install Engine
- Replace Timing belt and Timing Parts
- Vehicle Test (20-100 miles) depending on job level
Low mileage engines are usually available and pre-tested before supply. Also consider rebuilding and reconditioning your existing Mazda Bongo engine with brand new genuine (OE) parts. This option can often work out cheaper.
If you go for a reconditioned Mazda Bongo engine then following components of your existing engine must be free of cracks and or damage and capable of being re-machined:
- Cylinder head casting including camshaft, lifters and valve guides
- Cylinder block casting
- Connecting rods
If you are unsure and not very technical you may need to get the engine inspected to see what the best option is for you.
