anyone here besides me who has a diesel Sentra?
There does not seem to be a discussion category for diesel Sentra engines.
Is one needed? Oris the engine just a FWD version of the truck engine?

The diesel Sentra has a CD17 engine, which is completely different from the SD2x and LD28. AFAIK no parts interchange.
If we get more than one Sentra owner, I would consider adding a CD17 forum.

If your Sentra isn't newer than, say 1983, you really owe it to yourself to buy this 1982 Sentra Parts Catalogue for $20
. I have the 910 version and it's invaluable.
I've been looking at it for months, but can't quite bring myself to buy it.

no, mine is a 1984 50th anniversary model...whatever is so special about a Sentra I don't know but it's got a nice 50th emblem on it.
It's just sitting for the most part. I had plans to swap the engine into a T-top Pulsar but have too many other projects at the moment. Maybe someone will adopt her.

Tell me about your Infiniti with CD20T . . . heck, tell me about the CD20T, I've never heard of it.

G20 very close to the late 90's australian pulsar,no diesels here just the GA-SR engines.the GA engine is as fuel thirsty as a CD20 so theres no interest in selling similar cars here
european versions[sunny]get CD20 and are common.and ive seen some with the turbo.
primera is suposed to be a bigger car.i think someone fudged the tape measure as the cars ive seen i think it may have thicker moulding.
these are common buisness travellers cars with CD20/CD20T.
2 versions of CD engines-mechanical IP and fly by wire.the fly by wire looks better engine so i fit the early pump to it[it fits].
i have an early AD van[bluebird] engine one with dead intake valves-this must have been common on early models.easy to fix.CD20 is as good as a LD20T[allmost].

THe engine I get are mid-'90's, the only complant I have with them is they always have some little plastic peices broke on them by the time they get to me.
135.92 lb ft of torque (2400 rpm)
Redlines at 4800 rpm
Compression ratio is 22.2 to 1
Displacement, cc 1973
Anyways, My G20 is a auto, I get no less than 30mpg running about the city. I wish it was a 5-spd! You are suppose to be able to get 52mpg at a constant 56mph but that is impossible.. But I love it, I will be finishing my '98 frontier in a week of so. It will be a stick.. I am thinking it will get over 30mpg, maybe 35 if I am lucky.

owner of a 1985 Cd17 sentra signing in!
New owner of a 1984 Sentra CD17

Now we have 3 or 4 CD owners here. I just bought a 1984 Sentra with a CD17 engine. Incredible mileage. 54.2mpg after driving 65 to 75 for almost 300 miles.
Posted: Sun Apr 06, 2008 9:55 pm
That's a pretty small number of miles for a sample. I'd like you to check back in with an average, after you've accumulated more miles.
Read the Rabbit story
. I was getting truly incredible mileage at times -- because the tank's volume was changing and I couldn't put much fuel in sometimes.

Wondering how many CD17 are still out there in the USA /and then all togehter ??? I remember my Dad had one Brand new in 1985 but got rid of it because it could not have the rear tire aligned and tire kept wearing out. It was a 85 Sentra ,and got 50+mpg because I have that time eched in my brain as i was 17 and thought Wow i could goto .... on $3.00 and back.It was Also the first manual transmission I ever drove. I do remember It smoked REAL bad if you tried to push "hot rod" it, even when it was new. I would like to find One and buy it today , but none to be found. THANKS FOR HAVING THIS FORUM IT MADE MY WEEK!!!!!
AND OTHER SITES WOULD BE APPRECIATED!!!!!!
