The coolant capacity is 9.0 quarts app. Be careful to purge the cooling system on this motor bcause if it has any air in the system at all after flushing or replacing a substantial amount of coolant the motor will very easily overheat which could cause serious damage. There is a bleed valve on the thermostat housing to aid in removing (purging) air from the system. Run the engine until the car is at operating temperature and the thermostat is open then open the bleeder valve some on the thermostat housing. It may spit and hiss some while air is coming out and when there is just coolant and no more air close the valve and top off with more coolant to the recovery tank. Please remember the need to be very careful when working with any hot coolant that is under pressure.

With the 2.0 engine, 6.5 qts coolant capacity. The 2.4 turbo engine, 8 qts coolant capacity.

Turbo models: 7.6 us qt (7.2 liters); Non-turbo: 6.7 us qt (6.3 liters).....

Approximately 90 litres, or 34 Gallons

Using a timing light, the distributor is set at twelve degrees before top dead center cylinder one.

The 1.8 L turbo capacity is 3.9 quarts with filter change. The 2.8 L 6 cylinder capacity is 6.6 quarts with filter change.

if it is a 2.5L it should be 12 degrees before t.d.c.

you dont. why do you think you need to adjust it?

Ther is no egr valve on the 2.2 turbo engines. With FI and turbo, there was no need. Some of the earlier carb engines did have egr.

It will hold between two and three quarts

The 1995 Ford Probe, either the GT or the 4 cylinder DID NOT COME with a Turbo.

Turbo charged engines must be idled down to allow the turbo to spool down and even out the temperature in the turbo this is done either by using oil cooling or the engine coolant or both in combination.The engine needs to be running to circulate the oil and coolant if you shut the engine down without idling the engine down it can burn the oil or coolant and in many cases both which will cause carbon blockages in the oil feed and coolant feed and hamper lubrication leading to catastrophic turbo failure (fires and explosions)

No its a 4 cylinder turbo hence the 4 in srt4

this particular engine was an unusual 3 valves per cylinder with a turbo charger, it had an unusually good kick

if your turbo is damaged then BIG no. Thru your turbo goes coolant and oil. I've seen dead saabs that got engine damaged because the turbo blew and all the oil leaked out.

My 89 lebaron 2.5 non turbo has the ZF (plastic reservoir) power steering pump.....and I need to find a replacement as the low pressure line has broken off!

Leaking coolant can be from many areas. On the 2.2 Turbo used in your Daytona, there isn't anything above the valve cover, but it could be leaking from the head/block mating surface, due to a blown headgasket or a warped cylinder head. Also the turbo vehicles have coolant feed and drain lines going to and from the turbo, checkout the connections on the turbo for leaks and also on the thermostat housing and the rear of the block where it feeds.Finally, check all hoses on the radiator and the rad itself for any leaks or even a cracked head or block for coolant leaks.

The engine spec (and therefore cylinder count) has changed several times in the past, but as of the 2014 the sport has switched from 2.4-litre normally-aspirated V8 engines to 1.6-litre V6 turbo engines

No overdrive but the non turbo 4cyl had a lock out torque converter that usually kicks in at about 46-48 mph. Gave an extra 2+mpg. Not available on turbo cars.

The engine oil capacity of the 1997 Big Horn by Isuzu is 6.3 quarts. This is for the 3.1 Liter turbo diesel engine.

I had a split in the coolant hose that goes to the turbo. It sits down behind the engine and next to the firewall. It was very expensive to replace the hose and labor intensive because of how difficult it was to get to it..

Any turbo-charger that spins pressurised air into the cylinder makes a high pitched spooling sound is called a spooling turbo charger.

no...they are wont fit the block of a non turbo 4d56 engine...
