    also be careful when removing if mounted on block , because they are made of plastic , and when they get old they are bridled if they break before you get them out , you will have to drop the oil pan to get it the rest of the way out . if mounted behind the crank pulley , pretty easy.

As long as you can get it bolted to the engine somewhere it should work OK. I hope thats all the difference between those 2 engines. ?????

1989 Z24, 2.8v6 intermittent stalling while driving. Sometimes will restart, but not go far, sometimes will not restart at all. Usually starts fine the next day, may run OK several days before acting up...


the pcm may have a cracked board, i had an 88 cavalier z24 with the same problem, replced the ecu and it ran fine, the problem is that the boards inside the pcm crack and lose connection, the next time it acts up open the glove box and try tapping on the pcm, if the car responds at all, the pcm is bad

1999 Chevy Cavalier Z24 2.4L cooling fan inoperative


Probalby not, seeing that's what's telling your over heating. it wont be a bad idea to remove it (be carefull of hot fluid) and clean it off and put it back in. (wouldn't hurt anyways) but this problem is most likly a falty relay form the PCM to the fans. wireing might be corroed and need to be cleaned. check the fans for power and gorund with an omh meter.

MOTOR SHUTS OFFWHEN HOT1989 CAVALIER Z24


It sounds like your IAC,idle air control,this unit controls your idle once your choke completally shuts off.on 2.8litre it is located right side of engine just above where your fuel lines go into your manifold ( fuel rails), it's held in by 2 screws &looks like a little electric motor, it's actually a soliniod, inside is a little pinnacle that goes in and out and is controled by the computer.good luck.

1989 Cavalier Z24 3.1 rough idle and hesitation


it sounds to me that the sensor your talking about is the camshaft positioning sensor. It regulates how much fuel you get to your engine, so that is also why you have the fuel smell as well.

1989 cavalier z24 dies at stops and transmission kicks!


replace all vac lines first , then you need to get someone to run fuel pump pressure test to be sure you are getting proper fuel pressure , then take o propane torch ( not lit of course and go around all vac lines and intake with motor running and see if motor speeds up when you are holding it next to any suspected vac leak the tranny in this mod shifts off electric solenoids check to be sure all battery connections are clean and that i wire that ground the motor off the battery is in good condition and clean and tight , however the main care should be to vacuum and fuel pressure
