Questions specific to transmissions.
2 posts • Page 1 of 1
I have a 1999 Pontiac sunfire SE with the 2.2 SFI 4-Cylinder/Non-Ecotec, with an automatic Transmission the engine blew earlier this week on it and i have found a 1998 Cavalier with a running engine and transmission, the only thing wrong with the running vehicle is that the sub-frame is rusted out and causing the car to constantly lose its alignment, unsafe to drive. And I am looking to purchase the vehicle to use the engine and transmission for my car. A couple problems, my vehicle is a 4-door sedan Automatic and the car that i wish to use the engine out of is a two door coupe manual. I am worried about the shifter linkage being correct and space in my engine bay where i would be able to fit the clutch cable brackets and what-not.
With enough modifications you should be able to install that assembly in your Pontiac. It would much easier to get the correct set up to avoid all the extra work. One note, the computer is not set up for a manual transmission, so it will have a check engine light on all the time. Also check to see if all the sensor plugs are the same and they will plug into the sensors on the new engine.
