Mk2 engine in a 2012 Mk1

Hi, I looking at replacing my worn out mk1 Aygo engine. I was wondering if anyone has fitted a later Mk2 engine into a Mk1 car. If it’s not a straight swap I’ll just look for a low mileage Mk1. What did you have to do?

Thanks for your time.

Hi, thanks for the reply,

burning loads of oil. Have just cleaned the one way breather valve at the top of the cam cover ( which was blocked). Have yet to test it yet but suspect worn bores / stuck oil rings. Hope to borrow a camera from a friend & have a look down the bores.

Hi, thanks, I have cleaned the PCV which was blocked. Will give it a run tomorrow to see if it has made any difference. Also will pull the plugs to see if they are oily.

Checked the oil consumption after driving it for a couple of days & everything looks okay. Checked the spark plugs which were nice & clean. The PCV valve must have been at fault. Couldn’t believe that a trip from London to Southampton could have sucked 2.5 litres of oil out of the engine.😕
