2001-2005 Mazda Miata VVT Engine Longblock. Will fit any 2001-2005 Mazda Miata except for MazdaSpeed models. This was removed from a 2001 Mazda Miata that had 175k miles on the odometer. Due to the higher mileage on this motor, we are selling this engine as is, with local pick up options only. Engine was fully tested and in good running condition. Vehicle idled smoothly at 800rpm with no smoking or hesitations. Crank pulley spins smoothly with no signs of wobble or damage. Compression tested with good results (185-185-180-185). It came from a manual transmission car, but can be used for an automatic transmission as well. You will need to reuse some of your existing wiring harness and throttle body if you are installing this on an automatic transmission vehicle. Engine did have some oil residue near the front main seal, knock sensor, and valve cover gasket. These surface will need to be resealed prior to installation. We also suggest replacing the easy to access seals and gaskets while the engine is removed from the vehicle, such as rear main seal and front cam seals. Exterior of the engine is free of any major corrosion or surface rust. All exhaust manifold studs are not seized and spin smoothly. There is some typical light corrosion and cosmetic wear, normal for this mileage and age. Includes the motor mount brackets as shown. Includes everything in the pictures, nothing more, nothing less: Intake manifold, crank pulley, VVT solenoid and hardline, motor mount brackets, EGR valve, ignition coils, fuel rail, injectors, throttle body, alternator, and injector harness. You will need to reuse some of your existing hardware and components for installation.
This engine comes with a 60 day warranty that begins on the day the engine is received by the buyer. The warranty covers the engine block, crankshaft, pistons, rods, bearings, oil pump, cylinder head, head gasket, camshafts, valves and lifters against any defects that prevent the engine from operating as intended from the factory or make noises consistent with damaged engine internals ( rod knock, spun bearings, etc). Every engine we list on eBay has been fully run tested, compression tested and when possible test driven to make sure it runs smoothly, makes no odd noises and does not overheat. In addition, we also make sure there is no excess crank pulley wobble that indicates a worn crankshaft keyway (common Miata problem).
What is not included in the warranty is common wear and tear items such as: timing belt, water pump, thermostat, spark plugs, spark plug wires, sensors and seals. While these items were in working condition at the time of testing, their lifespan is usually shorter than the internals of the engine and are therefore not covered under warranty. If any seals or gaskets are leaking at the time the engine is being tested and removed, or any sensors broken or defective, they will be noted in the item description. No labor, diagnostic or towing costs will be covered under warranty. In the event of a warranty claim, please be prepared to supply pictures, video and/or a statement from a shop/mechanic to validate the claim. This warranty is non-transferrable. It is only applicable to the original purchaser.
Situations that will void the warranty:
Overheating of the engine. We install "heat indicator tabs" on every engine prior to shipping that show when an engine has being operated at a temperature significantly higher than normal operating temperature. If these tabs show signs of overheating, the warranty will be void. If the engine in your car is being replaced due to damage from an overheating condition please locate and fix the source of the issue prior to running your new engine.
Not running fresh oil and oil filter in the engine (these engines ship drained of all oil).
Installation of an aftermarket turbocharger, supercharger or Nitrous Oxide kit.
