Question about 1998 Dodge Avenger

1 Answer

Engine swap I have a 1998 dodge avenger and I'm looking to change or swap engines. If anyone can be so kind and tell me if it is possible, can you give a list of engines that can fit along with any other information (like transmission, air filters, exhausts, etc.) Thank you for your time!

    Thanks but I was looking for more information about the type of manufacturer. Is it all different types of 2.5L v6 that would fit or only a specific type of manufacturer. My dodge has a mitsubishi 2.5L v6 engine, willl a Mitsubishi Galant 2.5L fit?

SOURCE: 2008 Dodge Avenger check engine light

Not sure if this will work for you but worth a shot. I own a 2005 dodge neon. I know the ecu's are different but maybe dodge was smart and made all the cars this way. Insert you key into ignition. Turn key forward until you are at the last position right before the car starts to crank over. Repeat this for a total of three times then on your digital odometer display, you will see a set of numbers displayed. this will be your code for the malfanction(s) that set your check engine light. Like I said, it might not work on your car but give it a shot. If not, rent an obdII scanner and get your codes. Then you know where to start looking to fix your problem.

I have a 1998 Dodge Avenger with a 2.0 (4cyl). Does anyone know of any tricks to remove the passenger side motor mount to engine bolts without removing the engine from the car ????

Put the car on stands and put a jack within a few inches of the under side of the engine. Loosen the bolt mounts by about have a turn. Have a friend use a length of timber and use jack top as a lever fulcrum to take the weight of the engine off the mount whilst you remove the mounting bolts. Take care not to put any load on the oil pan as it can crush quite easily. You should be able to adjust the engine attitude about two inches without having to detach anything, this is enough room to get the old mount out and therefore the new one in. Take your time and keep safe

My daughter has a 1998 Avenger as soon as the car starts it blows a 30 amp fuse in the engine compartment which is simply marked ENGINE. After this fuse blows the car will not even try to start the lights...

sounds like you have a short in the electrical system between the ignition and the fuse box. it might be metal to metal somewhere inbetween in the wiring that is makeing the fuse blow out everytime

1998 avenger crank no start!

I don't have experience with the avenger itself, but i've been wrenching on cars for longer then i care to admit and age myself... LOL.... but from what your describing i would almost suspect a ECU problem, but that doesn't make sense since you have injector pulses and spark. If you have fuel, air, and spark... The only thing i could suggest is recheck all electrical connections and possibly do a compression test to rule out anything that might have failed with the relearn test drive. A quick google search through some dodge forums didn't really turn up any common avenger issues, sounds like a hair pulling problem!

I changed my headgasket on my 1999 dodge avenger and water pump spark plugs even the hydraulic timing belt tensionerand it is still misfiring

Why did you change the head gasket Patrick,
Was the engine missing before you did this,or did you over heat the engine from low coolant?
If the miss was there before you may have burnt a valve,

Swap Engine

Well first off if your only wanting a V6 an SRT4's engine is out of the question because it is an inline-4. If you still wanted to install it in your car it would be a good choice considering the power it makes stock as well as the power potential it has. If you use nitrous oxide on any STOCK motor you should be very conservative about it because you can easily blow the motor, I would say max for STOCK engine would be about a 100 shot and I would also recommend using only a 'wet kit' because it adds fuel and nitrous at the same time so less chance of your car leaning out.
