The QG engines were designed for Nissan by Aichi Machine Industry, Japan.

Nissan websites state the QG as standing for "Quality and Green".[1]



The QG13DE is an 1.3 L (1295 cc) DOHC 16 valve with 4 cylinder. It produces 87 hp / 6000 rpm and 130 nm / 4400 rpm.

It is used in the following vehicles:


Water cooled straight 4 cylinder engine with 1,5 L (1497 cc) cubic capacity and DOHC control. Bore and stroke are 76 mm (3.0 in) and 88 mm (3.5 in). Output is 109 hp (81 kW) at 6000 rpm and 143 nm at 4400 rpm and later 105 hp (78 kW) @6000 rpm

This Engine its used in

Nissan Vehocles and Samsung SM3


The QG16DE is an 1,6 L (1597 cc) straight 4 cylinder engine with DOHC and 16 valve and variable timing control (VTC). It produces 118 hp / 6000 rpm and 165 nm / 4000 rpm. Bore and stroke are 76 mm (3.0 in) and 88 mm (3.5 in). It is used in the Nissan Sunny NEO with 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission, and in Nissan Primera (P12) edition sold in various countries across Europe, and Nissan Sentra N16 series in the Philippines.


The 1.8 L QG18DD produces 130 hp (97 kW) @6000 rpm and 174 nm @2800 rpm.

It is used in the following vehicles:


The 1.8 L (1769 cc) QG18DE was designed for Nissan by Aichi Machine Industry, Japan. It is manufactured both in Japan and the Mexican city of Aguascalientes. Bore is 80 mm (3.1 in) and stroke is 88 mm (3.5 in). The engine is tuned to achieve most of its torque at low revs at the expense of raw power at high revs making the engine very responsive in day to day driving. It has a cast iron engine block and aluminum DOHC cylinder head. It uses MPI fuel injection, and features forged steel connecting rods, a one-piece cast camshaft, and a cast aluminum intake manifold. It also features N-VCT (Nissan's Variable valve Timing Control technology).


Emissions Control Devices

  • OBDII - Onboard Diagnostic System (codes can be read/erased by a variety of readers, ie Actron)
  • EGR - Exhaust Gas Recirculation
  • HO2S - (4) Oxygen Sensors (2 before exhaust catalyst, 2 after) - note a series 2 1.8l has only 2 o2 sensors 1 pre and 1 post
  • TWC - Three Way Catalyst (2 in exhaust manifold, 1 under car)
  • EVAP - Charcoal Evaporative Purge Canister
  • Ignition Timing: 9 degrees BTDC (can be altered +/- 2 degrees using CONSULT-II handheld diagnostic tester)
  • Knock Sensor - located on engine block; retards timing if pinging/detonation detected.
  • Heated Throttle Body - heated by engine coolant

It is used in the following vehicles:


The QG18DEN is the natural gas version of the QG18DE. It produces 105 hp (78 kW) @ 5600 rpm and 149 nm @ 2800 rpm. Bore and Stroke are 80 mm (3.1 in) and 88 mm (3.5 in). It was used in the Nissan ADvan from 2000-2008.
