So this is my first engine swap. I'm thrilled as all can be. However, since i've never done this ebfore, i want to make sure I'm doing it right. So I've posted a few pictures with letters next to parts I don't quite know. Fill in the blanks if you can.
BTW, this engine is a JDM d15b Vtec-e engine.
Each one of these is a sensor or wire of some sort, except for C, which is a tube that I don't know where it goes. I guess that could be the coolant line, but if it is, what is the tube under F?
D is an interesting one. It had two wires that go to the plug (green and black) and then four grounds that attach to the block. This might be the termostat housing, but it doesn't resemble the one I've seen from the d15b2, so it's all greek (or in this case, it's all Japanese) to me.
Is H the EGR? Is I the knock sensor?
Please help as I'd like to prepare for my swap with as much ease as possible.
A: ECT coolent temp sensor? Aor D
B: coolent gauge sending unit
C: one for the heater suply i think
D: ECT coolent temp sensor? A or D
E. EGR lift sensor
F: vtec solonid?
G: oil presure for vtec?
H: EACV or idle control motor
I: IAT intake air temp.
aslo that black thing on the other side of the TB shaft is the TPS.
I'm just goin to post this here so I don't lose it.
(this is what someone on another website said these were
Not too sure about D, E, F, and G. C looks to me like just a coolant line. B is your coolant temp wire for your gauge cluster. A is the coolant temperature sensor for the ECU. H is your IACV or (idle air control valve) plug. I is your Intake Air Temp Sensor or IATS
I = Intake air vale
H= eletronic air control valve
B , and A look like coolant temp sensors. I know A is for sure
D = Radiator fan switch
honestly honda-tech.com is an amazing source for any honda info
it really is great, assuming you can wade through the responses of
"n00b! Use da serch buton!! LOL!!"
or when you ask a question about a unpopular engine (such as this one) the responses you get will usually be something like:
"Yer so dum! Eye think jo0 shud git a b16a. Yer d15z1 sux0rs!"
in other words, so many people there are so quick to tell you your engine sucks, to swap an engine instead of fixing yours, or perhaps to use the search feature when you've already spent 2 hours searching through posts and have found nothing that relates.
yeah, once you wade through that crap, honda-tech IS a really good resource.
Honda-Tech is funny cuz if I look around there for gas mileage stuff and find it I get so excited like it is a jewel, but here it's like heaven but you dunno where to start. I'm trying to move away from h-t though to get this site solid enough it can concentrate on gas crap but these answers can still be had. Hell, I need to learn this stuff if I plan to buy one of those damn engines myself. Haha.
i know this isn't the place, but that engine is really clean (minus the broken tps, of course.) i hope you clean up your engine compartment and tranny to match.
That's already in the works. I am getting a few bottles of brake clean tonight and am going to clean the crap out of the tranny. Before I swap the new engine in, the engine bay will get a nice bath as well.
