Have just sold my old CR-V petrol and been looking for a replacement. Come across a 2005 diesel CR-V with engine issues, it would appear that talking to the seller it's been run low on oil and it's apparently very noisy when you accelerate and put the engine under load.
As it's very cheap and the car itself is in good order I was thinking of getting a replacement engine, I've found one for under a £1000.
Firstly do you have to have the right engine code for the car, I'm assuming you do, as it's a 2005 car what engine will it have in? I've been told it's probably an N22A1.
It will still be a cheap car once the engine is replaced or is there an engine specialist who can repair the bottom end?
Lastly am I mad for contemplating this!!
