The 2.2 liter Chevy ecotec?æwill fit into your 1998 Chevy Cavalier. The wiring harness and the motor mounts will need to be replaced.
To replace the thermostat on a 2002 Cavalier 22 Ecotec, drain the radiator and remove the upper hose assembly. Replace the thermostat and refill the radiator.
On a Vauxhall Cavalier Ecotec 2.0L, the timing marks are located on the front of the crank pulley. It is marked under the cam.
Stock Spark Plug gap for the 2.2 Ecotec (no Boost) is .045 inch
yes, they do! You have to take that pretty little ecotec plate off the top of the engine, the ecotec plate is really the coil packs, and lift that up and the plugs are down under that plate.
The clutch bleed valve on a 2.2 liter Chevy Ecotec engine is located on the slave cylinder. To find the slave cylinder remove the battery, as it is mounted underneath the battery tray.
The 2.2 ecotec motor has a timing chain with oil pressure tensioner and chain guides.
Dextron III or Dextron IV. It most Likely calls for the Dex III but with service bulletin updateds they have probably changed it to a Dex IV and I'd go with that it's a better fluid.
Standard 2.2 engine has 115 h.p. There is an optional 2.2 with 140 h.p.
Next time you post, please put an engine size, it helps alot. If you have the Honda motor and tranny, which most likely you do with this generation, it is up front towards the driver side, it is probally marked yellow a bit further down. if it is the Honda engine, you check it with the engine off. If you have the standard GM ecotec engine, then 99% sure the transmission has no dipstick, and you have to take another method to check from underneath. So check and see which motor you have and let me know.
Well yes and no. Both have a 2.2 four cylinder if I'm not mistaken, but I don't think the earlier Cavalier's have the EcoTec motor. And you should be able to get the engine from the '03 into the '97 with no problem.
Yes, it can be done but it will be very expensive. The engine, computer, transmission will need to be properly fitted. Custom mounts and axles will have to be produced. The wire harness will need to be upgraded as well to handle the new computer.
That is a big negative, the Ecotec S/C is an M62. But there is a 2.4L M45 GMPP Supercharger available for it.
YES, but it will lack the intake cam needed to drive the power steering pump.
If they're both 2.2L pushrod or both 2.2L Ecotec DOHC, yes. Check the 8th digit of the VIN at the left bottom corner of the windshield or on the sticker in the driver door jamb. The 99 isn't an Ecotec, so let's hope they're both pushrod.
2005 Cavaliers have a timing chain. All Ecotec motors do, which would include all Cavaliers from 2003-2005, any Cavaliers from 2000-2002 that had the Ecotec option, as well as many other GM models.
2001 and older (some 2002 LS Sport Coupes) - 115hsp. 2002 LS Sport Coupes and all 2003-2005 Cavalier Ecotec Engines - 140 hsp.
I recently porchased an 04 cavalier with the 2.2 ecotec engine. It gives me around 360 miles on a full tank but thats really pushing it
It must be a TIMING CHAIN because the Gates website ( they make timing belts etc. ) does not list a timing belt for the 2003 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 liter
yes but why would you want to? the ecotec engine that comes in a 2004 is a much better engine then the 2.2l or 2.4l that you would get in a 97.
the 2.2, the 2.4 and the 2.2 ECOTEC. the mount are the same for the ecos and 2.4. you just need to change the tranny, harness and fuel pump
no. they are both 2.2 eco techs but they have different transmissions. the 2007 cobalt will have 9 bellhousing bolts and the 2004 cavalier will have 7. the cobalt will run a 3 wire hall effect crankshaft sensor and the cavalier runs a 2 wire permanent magnet sensor. this means a different reluctor wheel and therefore it wouldn't run anyways without the cobalt harness and tranny.
GM Ecotec family engines have timing CHAINS, not belts.
Is it ecotec or not? if not, the oil pressure switch is located 2 inches to the left of the oil filter on the back of the motor
