Disconnect the battery.Jack the car up and place on stands. Next, place a board on the jack and jack it up until it's tight under the oil pan. Starting on the passenger side of the car, locate the AC lines. You'll notice they are secured to a upper motor mount. Remove the nuts holding the clip in place. Next remove the remaining nuts UNDER the previous ones.Remove a 10mm screw holding the coolant reservoir just behind the headlight. Now tilt towards the engine and lift carefully, and place out of the way. Remove remaining nuts to remove what's left of the upper motor mount. Now being sure the jack is still in place, remove the 2 large bolts that connect the outer half of the mount with the motor half of the mount. At this point the motor should start shifting around. BE SURE THE JACK IS STEADY!

Now remove the belt by releasing tension on the tensioner/ idler pulley. There are three bolts holding the Alternator in place. 2 go in from above and one from the side where the belt just was. Once removed the alternator will need to be unplugged by A) a wiring harness and B)a 13mm nut (red wire).

"Dance" the alternator out of it's current position and have it tested. NEXT, have the NEW ONE TESTED ALSO!!! If your battery is dead, BUY A NEW ONE!! The alternator WILL NOT charge a dead battery. Rather, the dead battery will destroy the internal diodes of the new alternator, forcing you to buy ANOTHER alternator. NOT FUN!

Wire up the new alternator, bolt it in place, re-attach the fender-half of the upper motor mount first, then line up the engine (rock it back and forth if you have too, being sure it stays on the jack)mount with the fender mount and bolt in the last remaining bolts.

This ISN'T the easiest thing to do by yourself. A second STRONG person should assist you.

Good Luck!

Remove the belt from your 1994 Chevy Astro Van 4.3 liter engine alternator. Remove the wiring harness from the back of the alternator. Remove the alternator retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.

Yes the 2.2 liter 2001 Chevy Cavalier does have an interference engine. This means the valve and pistons share the same space in the engine.

If you have a 2.2 liter 4 cylinder, the water pump is under the alternator on the passenger side and below the serpentine belt tensioner.

That is referred to as "back dating" and it is illegal at the federal level.

On a 2.2 Liter, it is located on the Passenger side towards the front of the car and is just below the alternator (towards the bottom of the engine compartment).

The Chevy Cavalier 2.2 liter engine timing marks can be found on the main pulley. The timing marks will be scattered around the outside of the pulley.

Your 2.2 Liter Chevy engine does not have a cam belt, it has a chain. No regular maintence is required.

You can swap the engine from your 1997 Cavalier 2.2 liter engine to your 2000 Chevy Cavalier. The wiring harness and motor mounts should be in exactly the same.

The firing order for a 1989 Chevrolet Cavalier is 1, 3, 4, 2. This is for a 2.2 Liter engine.

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
