Honda Jazz Engine

The Honda Jazz is a five-door hatchback compact car, manufactured by the Honda Motor Company of Japan, introduced in June 2001 and now in its second generation. By June 2007, more than 2 million Jazz had been sold worldwide. The Honda Jazz debuted in June 2001 in Japan, followed by introductions in Europe (early 2002), Australia (late 2002), South America (early 2003), South Africa and South East Asia (2003), China (Sep 2004), Mexico (late 2005), and United States and Canada debuted 2006. Some countries name it Fit.

The Fit is sold in 6 variations. All Jazz models throughout the world utilize one of 7 or more distinct codes. They are found in the vehicle’s identification number (VIN):

  • GD1: 1.3 L L13A i-DSII4 engine 2WD (Europe: 1.4L)
  • GD2: 1.3 L L13A i-DSI I4 engine 4WD (Japan only)
  • GD3: 1.5 L L15A I4 engine 2WD
  • GD4: 1.5 L L15A VTEC I4 engine 2WD (Canada and United States and Mexico only)
  • GD5: 1.5 L L15A I4 engine 4WD (Japan only)
  • GD6: 1.2 L L12A i-DSI I4 engine 2WD (Europe only)
  • GE3: 1.3 L L13A i-DSI I4 engine 2WD (2007 Europe 1.4L model. Made in China)

Depending on the region, the Jazz is equipped with either a 1.2 engine, 1.3 engine (in Europe referred as 1.4L model), or 1.5 litre i-DSI engine, or 1.5 litre VTEC engine. All four engines are based on Honda’s L series engine family. The 8 valve i-DSI (intelligent dual and sequential) engines use two spark plugs per cylinderhead, allowing gasoline to burn more completely; therefore, fuel consumption and emissions are reduced while maximum torque at mid-range rpm is maintained. The 1.5 L VTEC engine has the typical 16 valve configuration that can maximize output at high rpm. Honda Jazz’s L-series of engines also provides 75 and 90 horsepower (67 kW).

The Jazz is marketed in different ways and has different characteristics throughout the world, depending on which region it is sold in.

Europe’s 2005 European Honda Jazz, the European market also has two engines available. The European-only 1.2 i-DSI is offered as the base model in many countries. The 1.4 i-DSI is identical to the 1339 cc 1.3 i-DSI sold in Japan, but marketed as a 1.4 L to differentiate it from the smaller 1.2 L engine (ironically, at 1244 cc engine, it is closer to 1.3 L than the bigger one is to 1.4 L). 1.4 L models start out well-equipped.

Two engines are offered in the new Jazz. A 1.3 L (79 cu in) i-VTEC will produce 98 hp (73 kW) at 6,000 rpm and 98 lb•ft (133 N•m) at 4,500 rpm. This engine will be offered in both European and Asian markets. A 1.5 L (92 cu in) i-VTEC engine is also offered and produces a maximum output of 117 hp (87 kW) at 6,600 rpm and 106 lb•ft (144 N•m) at 4,800 rpm. This is the only engine available in the American market.

On July 28, 2008 Honda UK announced that the second generation Jazz would be on sale from October 17, 2008. This new model was sold with two new engine variants; a 90 PS 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol capable of 55.4mpg (combined) and with low CO2 emissions of 120g/km; and a 100 PS 1.4-litre i-VTEC petrol engine capable of 53.3mpg (combined) and with similarly low CO2 emissions of 123g/km. Honda also announced the introduction of an optional new “i-shift” semi-automatic gearbox replacing the traditional automatic CVT gearbox that had been available on the previous model.

Production of the Jazz for European markets moved from Japan to Honda’s UK plant in Swindon on the 7th October 2009.

Looking after your Jazz engines

A Jazz engine is a machine designed to convert energy into useful mechanical motion. In common usage, an engine burns or otherwise consumes fuel, and is differentiated from an electric machine (i.e., electric motor) that derives power without changing the composition of matter. An engine may also serve as a “prime mover”, a component that transforms the flow or changes in pressure of a fluid into mechanical energy. An automobile powered by an internal combustion engine may make use of various motors and pumps, but ultimately all such devices derive their power from the engine. The term “motor” was originally used to distinguish the new internal combustion engine-powered vehicles from earlier vehicles powered by steam engines, such as the steam roller and motor roller, but may be used to refer to any engine.

Checking your Jazz engine

All modern vehicles have a computer or the ECM (Electronic Control Module) that controls the operation of the vehicle Powertrain. The main purpose of this is to keep the engine running at top efficiency with the lowest possible emissions. With constantly growing demands for better fuel economy and new strictest emission regulations it’s not very easy to achieve. The engine parameters need to be constantly and precisely adjusted according to various conditions such as speed, load, engine temperature, gasoline quality, ambient air temperature, road conditions, etc. That’s why today’s cars have much more electronics than in early days, there is a large number of various sensors and other electronic devices that help the vehicle computer or ECM to precisely control the engine and transmission operation and monitor emissions.

The vehicle computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon” light to tell you that there is a problem and your car needs to be looked at.

To properly diagnose what is wrong, you need to take your car to a mechanic or a dealer. The technician at the dealership or a garage will then hook up the scanner to the car computer and retrieve the stored trouble code(s). Then he (she) will look it up in the service manual provided by a car manufacturer. The service manual contains the list of possible codes (about few hundred) and describes what each code means and what needs to be tested. The code itself doesn’t tell exactly what component is defective – it only indicates where to look, what engine parameter is out of normal range. The technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint a defective part.
