1999 Chevy Cavalier Z24 2.4L Twin Cam engine blown. My '99 Chevy Cavalier Z24's 2.4L Twin Cam engine just went out. Would I be able to replace the 2.4L with a 2000 Cavalier 2.2L engine? If so what should I expect for problems and issues? Do you know of anyone doing so successfully?
Your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Answer: I am sure it can be done, but there would be a lot of modifications that needs to be performed. For starters, the computer, entire engine harness, exhaust, A/C, power steering, engine mounts, etc. would all need to be modified to accommodate the 2.2L. Mounting of these components is different, as well as all hoses. Would not be worth the time and effort. The 2.4L is widely available, so stick with what the car should have.
No Catalytic Converter Make Car Louder
If i cut the catalytic converter off and put in a straight piece of pipe will it make my car louder. We have no smog laws where i live so i`am not worried about emissions. Also will it effect the fuel mileage.
The exhaust will not be any louder. This will not effect fuel economy. But it will cause a check engine light since the oxygen sensor behind the converter will show that the exhaust is not being cleaned up, since the catalytic converter is missing.
