It's not as easy as it should be - you have to remove all of the obvious stuff to gain access to the cover from the top. Remove serpentine belt. Jack up passenger front wheel, secure with jack stands. Remove the splash shield to gain access to the crank pulley, remove that pulley, loosen all of the timing cover bolts. Put the crank pulley retaining bolt back on crank and use it to rotate engine to top dead center (align little dots on crank and case). Then mark the chain where it meets the two cam sprockets, remove the chain tensioner (lower on the engine, near the crank). Next, remove the two cam sprockets from the cams. Then the trick is to remove all the bolts in the face of the timing cover that hold it to the block plus loosen the nuts that hold the water pump (under the exhaust manifold) to the timing cover. Don't remove the nuts entirely or you'll have trouble getting them started again (at least the one nearest the engine block). With the water pump loose enough, you should have enough clearance to get the cam cover off the top of the cam housing. You can do all of this without removing any of the engine mounts, but you will have to work with the timing cover to find just the position that it will go up over the mount and allow you to work inside the timing chain housing. I'd recommend getting a Chilton's manual - what I've stated is not working line for line from that book, but what I've figured out by using that book as a reference and doing a bit of experimenting.

What volume is occupied by 10.0 grams N2 at 30 degrees Celsius and a pressure of 750 torr?

1 mol N2 = 28g 30C = 303K At STP, 1mol * 273K is proportional 24L * 760torr. (PV = nRT) Then we do a little bit of stoichiometry... 10g * 1mol/28g * 24L*760torr/(1mol*273K) * 303K * xL/750torr = 9.6402 L 10.0g of N2 at 30C and 750torr should occupy 9.6402L

Will a 2001 Sunfire engine 24L fit in a 1996 Sunfire that has a blown 24L?

AnswerAll I know is that 1998 2.4 Cylinder head will fit on a 2002 2.4 as I sold mine to a guy rebuilding one. He did mention that sensor location was in a different spot but that was all.So some difference but not that much I guessI replaced a 1996 engine with a 1998. The '96 has a check oil sensor in the oil pan where the '98 does not. This doesn't affect the cars running, but you'll need to remove the 'check oil' bulb from the dash or swap oil pans to accomodate the '96 sensor. The anti-knock sensor is also different as the '96 uses a single wire sensor and the '98 uses a 2 wire. The A/K sensors also mount differently so you can't just swap them out. I jury-rigged a '96 sesor to press against the block and it works fine.

What are the torque values for the cylinder head of a 1997 24L Pontiac Grand Am?

For all the 2.3, 2.4L QUAD 4 engines, the head bolts are Torque to Yield. The porper torque value is 30ftlbs PLUS a 90 degree turn of the wrench. The bolts must be new every time ( NEVER REUSE OLD BOLTS). The torque values and proper sequence are including in the box the new bolts come with. BUT honestly, the torque value is 65ft lbs like all GM Chevy motors have been for eons.

How do you replace the front and rear oxygen sensors on 1996 Chrysler Sebring JX 24L?

The O2 sensor after the converter is easy, the front sensor is more challeging. You need a sensor socket possibly some liquid wrench. Put the socket on the front sensor located on the exhaust manifold with the ratchet handle pointing up between the valve cover and fire wall, once it is broken free finish removing it from the bottom unplug the old one and plug in the new one. Do the same for sensor 2.
