Engine Nissan CGA3DE

The 1.4-liter Nissan CGA3DE engine was produced for a very short time from 2000 to 2003 and acted as a more modern and advanced modification of its younger brothers. The power unit in the local market was offered in a 100 hp version with direct fuel injection.

The CG family also includes internal combustion engines: CG10DE and CG13DE.

Disadvantages of the CGA3DE engine

  • The most common procedure is to replace stretched timing chains;
  • This is followed by cleaning the throttle to get rid of floating speed;
  • The thermostat often freaks out or the electronic engine control board burns out;
  • Often there are oil and wine leaks, usually in quickly drying oil seals;
  • The cause of the tripping of the motor can be water seeping into the candle wells.
