Toyota RAV 4 Engine

The latest Toyota RAV 4 engine type may be well known as 1AZ-FE, which is in the same family of latest 2,400cc Camry, Harrier and Estima which carry 2AZ-FE.

But there are one more older version of RAV 4 carry the 3S type of engine, which is the same family for the Corolla ST171, Camry SXV10 type of engine, but this 3S engine still can diffrentiate by 3S-FE, 3S-GE and 3S-GTE, though the design of the cylinder head is quite similar, there are big diffrence in term on their valve cover side.

Although there are quite a lot of Honda model is not imported to Malaysia, you can still find a lot of imported engine which modified on the local model, one of the choices is H22A type of engine original from Accord and Prelude model.
Even H22A engine it self have 2 type of design cylinder head, although it look similar, but their gasket is not interchangable between 2 of them.

Honda 5 Cylinder Engine

For passenger car engine, we are familiar with the design of 3 cylinder, 4 cylinder and even 6 cylinder type of engine, it is rarely can find a design of 5 cylinder engine under the Japanese car engine technologies, but it does not mean they did not have it, Honda G20A and G25A type of engine in their Acura, Inspire and Vigor range of model is one of the best example.

Strangely other than this type of design, it is really hard to search which type of engine is using 5 cylinder design in Japanese vehicle range, unless we go for the continental type of vehicle, which you may still can find 5 cylinder design in such as Mercedes Benz MB602 or in Ssanyong engine which is derive from Mercedes Benz engine as well.
