Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier
Will a 3.1 L. bolt right up in place of the original 2.2? Is the transmission going to be a problem?
No it will not bolt right in i'm not even sure if it will fit in the engine bay
i'm not saying you can't make it fit if there's a will there's away
if you use a grand am 3100 it will bolt up to the transmission if it's an automatic they both have 4T40 transmissions
hope this helps you

No, they have different engine mounts and 3.1 needs bigger,more heavy duty transmission.

This answer is ever so wrong and will get your car damaged
or you hurt.
these procedure are for 95 thru 2000 devilles with a 4.6 l engines
1 jack vehicle and place on sutable jack stands, block rear
2 remove the lower air shourd from the engine crade under
the front of the car , remove upper front cover over rad. and headlight
3. remove cap from coolant bottle, DISCONNECT NEGITIVE
BATTERY CABLE Only
4 place a large catch basin under the left (driver side) of
5 remove lower rad. at the thermostat housing CAUTION coolant will be flowing quite rapidly
insure engine and coolant is cold before you start
6 remove upper rad. hose from the rad on the right side
7 carefully remove both electrical fans 10 MM retaing bolts,
disconnect electrical connections and retaining zip ties , mark fan for proper
reinstall as they are not interchangable
8 remove fan retaining mount from top of rad. long black
9 remove both 10 mm bolts retaining rad and supports
10 remove coolant
catch basin and replace with a pan to catch transmission fluid
11 disconnect BOTH transmission cooler lines fron the left
(drivers side) of the read one will be at the top and the other close to the
bottom. some slight fluid will be lost ( approx 6 to 8 oz)
12 slightly tilt rad back at the top and remove from the
vehicle. place upright in a secure position to prevent damage to the fins they
can be damaged very easily.and costly to repair or replace
13 remove the right front tire from the vehicle
14 remove the right front inner fender splash sheild which
is held in place with #2 crosstip screws and 7mm sheet metal screws
15 remove serpitine belt using 1/2 drive rachet or braker
bar. ( I sugggest investing in a serpitine tensinor removal tool less than
30.00 and can be used on all kinds of other vehicles)
16 remove the 15mm bolt from lower Alt support it is between
the battary ground connection and the A/C
compressor mounting bolt
17 using a 15 mm boxed end wrench remove the 15mm lower
bolts behind the Alt you will have to get under the vehicle and they are tricky
to remove as the exhaust and a bracket is very close and a scoket will not
18 from the top of the engine disconnect the 10mm nut under
the black plastic protective cap. be very careful as this is the positive lead
back to the battery and will arc out and damage your battery if you did not
disconnect the negative cable from the battery
19 Carefully disconnect voltage regulator connection from alt.
20 remove final 15mm bolt from top rear of the alt. using a
15mm open ended wrench the bolt will not come all the way out and will hit the
remove alt from the vehicle.
21 start reversing procedures to install. REMEMBER to check
your serpitine belt for cracks and dammage before you instll it I recommend to
always replae it at this time to save future touble,
22 when installing serpitine belt have an assistant hold the
tensioner up while you install the lower part of the belt install the belt on
the tensioner pulley last.
23 after all bolts and covers have been installed replace
lost coolant with DEXCOL 50/50 mix with water DONOT use the ethergylcol coolant
as it will pnot mix and will damage the entire cooling system.
24 warm engine up to operating temp and replace coolant cap
25 check transmission fluid level with engine running and
warm and in park top off as needed
26 check lug bolt torques
27 HAPPY DRIVING
