Nissan Figaro Fully Reconditioned Engine - MA10ET




SKU ENG056RF Category Add to Wishlist


The Nissan Figaro is equipped with a 987cc fuel injected turbocharged MA10ET engine which is perfectly suited to the vehicle. As the engine is around 30 years old, wear and tear can have an adverse affect on the performance and reliability of the powerplant and these effects can sometimes cause catastrophic failures. This can be due to poor previous maintenance, overheating from a cooling system failure or just age.

At The Figaro Shop, we pride ourselves on having the ability to offer fully reconditioned engines using our vast specialised experience from our specially trained technicians to produce a rebuilt engine as reliable as when it was new. Our engines are rebuilt to the highest standard and accuracy using the best quality parts and come with a 6 month warranty against any manufacturing defects.

The reconditioned engines undergo a systematic strip down and rebuild that includes:

  • Full strip down to component parts and cleaned thoroughly to ensure no contaminants remain in the head and block
  • The head and block and checked, measured and skimmed to ensure they have perfectly flat mating surfaces
  • Cylinders are bored to 0.5mm oversize to accept all new specific oversize pistons for the correct operation of the engine
  • Crankshafts are checked and machined/polished to accept all new crank and conrod bearings
  • End float is checked
  • New oversize pistons and rings fitted
  • Oil sump cleaned, painted and sealed using genuine end gaskets

Important Notes: Reconditioned engines, as per the photo Do Not Come with manifolds or any other ancillaries.

Reconditioned engines are supplied DRY without oil or water, they will include a new oil filter but will need filling with mineral oil first to help bedding in of new bearings and rings and then drained and re-filled with 10w40 oil. Instructions for the bedding in procedure and included with the reconditioned engine
