EgtDude: It blew because some piece detached inside the engine ...
So...I can put a 2.0SPI from ford into my car without any modification?!
Remember..my car is a 96 escort 1.9 manuel!
I cannot put a engine from another compagny like Mazda?!
The 1.9 you have was a redesign by Mazda. I think the previous non-Mazda design was more reliable.
Umm. NO.
The 1.6, 1.9 and 2.0 are all CVH ford based, not a single touch of Mazda.
The 1.8 GT is a mazda.
But how much work do you want to do?
Any mazda motor will require a tranny, computer, swap wireing harness, axcels and a bunch of stuff under the hood.

Not a single touch of Mazda? Have you even ever seen a 1.9L from 1991-1996? It has Mazda brakes, Mazda master cylinder, Mazda ignition lock, Mazda front defroster vent on the dash (which rattles), and uses Japanese fuel injection (previous Ford design used Bosch made in Germany). The whole car was a Mazda redesign. I owned one of the previous non-Mazda versions. And the Transmission is made in Japan by Mazda for all US Escorts. Get your facts straight!

A made in Japan transmission is more than a "touch of Mazda".
I was talking about the 1.9 "motor" not the escort in general.
The original question was for a "Motor" swap.
My 1.9 uses a Ford FPR, and Ford fuel pump and injectors from a Ford cobra. :dontknow:
Trust me, my Facts are Sraight.

The 1991-1996 1.9L engine was redesigned by Mazda (from previous 1.9L). Manufactured in the US, but designed in Japan. Understand?
No I dont under stand.
This is the first time I heard that the 91-96 1.9 was mazda.
I know that the 1.8 is mazda and that the chassie is Mazda, but not the 1.9 motor.
If the 91-96 is redesigned by Mazda, than how come there are so many parts that are interchangeable with the ford first gen 1.9? like all the way down to the head gasket and exhaust gasket. Mazda must not of redesigned much if there is so many simularites form the "Ford" 1.6-1.9 first gen.
Even the heads and pistons are interchangeable.
I have'nt found any mazda parts on my 1.9 secon gen.

Thx for arguying! :p
I want to swap the engine without any major modification..just basically...take the old one out and put the new one...
My garage found one at 535 CA buck and a refurbish from Ford are 2500 CA $ :oops:
Calculate 12 to 15 hour of work at 48 CA $ = 720 $ + 535 $ = 1255 $ --> 900 US !!!
And the guy from Ford say that they never seen a 1.9 engine blown-up! :|
Your in luck, since you have a 96 (OBD2) it will be really easy to drop in a Escort 97 2.0 SPI motor in to your 96. You dont need to swap trannys or computer or harness. I have a how to over at ERDT and here some were to just search for it.
I just use junk yard motors for about 300 bucks with no problems at all.

I think we all agree that the 1.6, 1.9 HO, second gen 1.9 and third gen 2.0 are all FORD motor.
A well maintained 1.9 is a stong cookie, I have 120k mi with 6 psi with no problems.

If Mazda designed or redesigned the 1.9, they wouldn't build two sets of trannies, for two engines that close in size and power it makes no sense mechanically or financially to build two sets of trannies. The 1.9 trannies are non interchangeable with the 1.8 trannies because of this fact.
I still have the window sticker for my 1995LX, and it specifically states that the transmission is made in Japan. Do I need to scan in and post to convince you that the transmission is a Mazda product?
A tranny "made" in Japan and a 91-96 1.9 being designed by Mazda are two differnt things, and how you got them mixed up? I dont know.
I think you need to take you own advice and "Get you facts straight".

CVH stands for "center valve head" if I recall correctly and it is all ford. the second gen LX 1.9 is nearly identical to the 1st gen 1.9 LX engine.I dont know why Ford didnt dump this engine and stick with the H.O version for the second gen which produced around 110 hp as opposed to the 88 hp of the LX and would probably be the easiest and smartest swap for LX because 1st gen GT's are a dime a dozen and engines are easy to find.Another good swap would be the 3rd gen 2.0 spi engine which is also basically the same engine as the 1.9. to swap in any other engine would require alot more work
CVH = Compound Valve angle Hemispherical.

A first gen GT has too many differances to make it work on a second gen, the starter motors are in differnt places, the disribitor would have to be removed and DIS added, not sure if cam sensor is the same...ect

The 97 2.0 is about as a direct fit as you can get, only differnace is a SPI controller and TPS.
