What years for 16v SOHC and DOHC

what years did they have the 16valve 1.6 engine with Single Overhead Cam
and what years did they do the Dual Overhead Cam...

and did the heads on the single overhead cam have problems cracking?

what years did suzuki have problems with the 1.6 16valve heads....


also, how hard would it be to convert from a SOHC to a DOHC.... ???what all would be involved?

any advise would be greatly appreciated..

thanks all...

Re: What years for 16v SOHC and DOHC

Uhh DOHC? I can't say that I ever heard of a DOHC 16 Valve. As far as I know, they were all SOHC.

Haven't heard of any problems with heads cracking, so I can't say ANY years had problems with that.

Maybe the Swift had a DOHC, but not the Sidekicks or Trackers...

Re: What years for 16v SOHC and DOHC

right there in the Chilton manuel for sidekicks....
shows a picture of a Dual... one for the intake and one for the exaust...
but does not show the year....

and I know the the head I just blew on my 16valve shows only one cam.......

so thus the question......
cuz I need to fix my rig...

Maybe you are thinking of the DOHC 1.8L from the Sidekick sport.

Are you sure the picture you saw was not a Suzuki 1.8 engine? They have DOHC and are close to the same size as a 1.6.

Ronin, You must've beat me to the trigger in a photo-finish.

Re: What years for 16v SOHC and DOHC

ok I'll buy that... it probably was the 1.8...

but now the question I really want to know,

what years did they have head problems... so I can stay away from those years...

thanks

Re: What years for 16v SOHC and DOHC

rich,

I have a speed shop out of AU that sales parts for the Swift GTi that came with the 1300 DOHC motor. I know I spoke with a shop out of Canada that does these swaps for a 1300 16V DOHC. I just emailed them and hope they might answer me.
