I want to replace my 2004 Aveo engine, and was hoping to be able to put in a newer 2006 or 2007 engine. The cross reference info says 2004 & 2005 only, but I know the size & type designations are the same for 2006 & 2007, even though they are not listed as "interchangeable". Does anyone know the difference in these two generations of Aveo engines?
If the block & head are the same, I can bolt on all my old stuff to the new engine. But I don't want to find out that the transmission does not mate up, or the manifolds, starter, etc.
Anyone know the real deal on these engine differences?

Re: Can I use 2006 or 2007 1.6L engine in 2004 Aveo??
You should be able to interchange them....its every 4 years that they change the design of an engine and i believe yours can be changed since they are within 3 to 4 years difference.you cant always go by the book so you have to look both engines over closely and see that everything looks the same top and bottom and if they are go for it.

Yes a 2004 chevy aveo with a 1.6 L inline 4 cylinder is an interference engine. Hopefully you did'nt snap the timing belt while driving, because usually it will bend up some valves and even could crack a piston. Most likely if that did happen you will need to take the head off and have the valves inspected / replaced and inspect for piston damage as well......Mike

Here is a simple process that will walk you through a few steps that

without even using any tools. It has helped millions of people, and I am
certain that it will help you, because I wrote it for people in your exact situation. How to diagnose your overheating 2004 Chevrolet Aveo
check the fuel pump and related electrical system and fuses. The aveo doesn't have a fuel filter but only a screen at the bottom of the pump. I had to replace the fuel pump in my 2004 aveo at 80k due to a clogged screen. Hope this helps
Get the right timing belt part and tensioner asembly,
It will come withthe instruction manual in the box from NAPA ,,, autozone, etc.
The belt will have white marks that corespond to marks on puleys,
Remove no 1 plug , insert ruber hose turn engine to top point TDC.
Folow instructions on suplied sheet.
There is a Communication problem between the Transmission Control Module (TCM) and the Engine control module. That is the bad news and is why it's shutting down the engine.
The good news is i believe there is a TSB recall on the 2004 - 2007 chevy aveo for the P0700 problem so it should be covered under warranty.
Believe the TSB# 05-06-01-030D
Good luck and hope this helps and hope it's not a bad ECM. Check the wire harness to the ECM and TCM, look for broken wire or the harness it self gone apart.
Hello Joe...The Aveo has had it shares of problems, and this is one of them....NHTSA issued several bulletins on the 04 Aveo...this following is the one pertaining to the shift interlock.....
Make : CHEVROLET Model : AVEO Year : 2004 Manufacturer : GENERAL MOTORS CORP. Service Bulletin Num : 070730007 Date of Bulletin: APR 01, 2007 NHTSA Item Number: 10022265 Component: POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION Summary: AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE/TRANSMISSION SHIFT LEVER MAY NOT SHIFT OUT OF PARK (REPLACE BRAKE TRANSAXLE SHIFT INTERLOCK (BTSI) SOLENOID). *KB
Take that bulletin number to your dealer and see if they can help.
Untill you can get it repaired heres a little tip for getting it out of park....There is a a little hole in front of their gearshift lever that can correct the problem, temporarily. It should say "brake interlock release" or something like that. With car running, put a key-size object into it and push down while moving the lever. It does not damage the transmission, it just releases the lock. (make sure your foot is on the brake)
Now for the brake light issue...do you have power at the switch you replaced? If so go to the relay and check there...if no power there it's probably a bad ground.
Also...you may or may not know, but the timing belts on these Aveos are prone to failure at aprox 50k ...these failures have caused severe engine damage. Good luck...i hope the information i've provided you find useful. Please time to rate me.
just go to any junk yard and find a used deawoo lanos and pull the head if timing belt was not broke, if it looks good, its a exact fit 100%, no special tools needed, just normal wrench set and torqe wrench. after head is installed, get a gates timing belt only.
