Will a 2.2L 4 cylinder out of a 94 Grand Am fit in a 96 Chevy Cavalier with the same motor without any changes to the motor mounts?

It may be a direct fit. Be careful about back dating. It's illegal, and if you have state inspections, your car will probably fail. You can always put in a newer engine, but not an older one.

AnswerI am in this same situation. I tried to put a 95 2.2L out of a cavalier into a 97 cavalier. It will bolt in, but there is no cam position sensor on the back of the older block. You must use a 96 to 99 engine. In 96 GM went to a new engine control managment system. I just spent 3 days searching for a work around for the cam position sensor and there isn't one nor is there a way to put a cam position sensor on the 95 and lower 2.2L engine. I could have used this info. Good Luck!

No. But there are companies that make adapter mounts which will allow it to bolt-in without modifications. (Not cheap.)

The 1997 Cavalier has two motor mounts, as well as a transmission mount. If the mounts are broken the motor can move around and cause damage to components under the hood.

No. You will have to get v-8 mounts.

The 1993 Pontiac Grand Am for cylinder engine has four motor mounts. There is a motor mount on each corner of the engine.
