Re: Someone take me into or out of this engine swap.

Re: Someone take me into or out of this engine swap.

I don't know if the 2.4 harness is the same or not. Also, I would not trying to attach either of these engines to my 5 speed manual.. It would be an entire engine/transmission swap.

Re: Has anyone rebuilt a 2004 2.2 ecotec ?(burning 2 quarts of oil a week)

If you're sure the plug well has coolant in it.. My guess is a cracked head.

Re: Another alignment needed after Frnt strut install??

I put the two (old/new) struts next to each other.. The old one is bad for sure.. the shaft kept sinking.. But if i held it in place.. The new one was definitely about 10mm shorter to the shoulder..
