00 1.6 Will a mk3 Astra engine fit in it ? - heyjude
Hi
I have a zafira 1600 16v reg 2000 that has just broken down on me (first time in 6 yrs) the cam belt has broken and i have been advised that it is going to be very costly to repair as all the valves are bent!

Do you know if an astra mk3 engine would fit in my zafira? Ive been offered a brand new astra engine 1600 16v but dont know if it will fit?

Thanks.

Doubt it, by a MK3 Fiesta do you mean an Astra F? E.g the 1991-98 model?

They are completly different cars but with modified engine mounts, new ECU etc it should be possible but a large amount of work. I know a lot of people put 2.0 Cavilier engines into Corsas but it is a very popular mod so there is many aftermarket products which make the process easier.

Edit even things like the auxs will not be compatable, the Astra F had hydraulic steering where as the Zafera has electro hydraulic I think.

The Astra F is also known as the Astra Mk3. Not sure where the Fiesta comes into it though? Perhaps a limited edition ;o)
