There is a little misinformation here.

1. The injection methood depends on the intake, and Chrysler has stopped using carbs in their 4 cylinder cars a long time. It had been replaced by throttle body injection. A cheap way to make fuel injection with a carb designed intake. By 1989 both the 2.2L and the 2.5L were using the same port injection.

2. In 1989 Chrysler switched to the common block which means that the 2.2L and 2.5L use the same exact block. They bolt into the same mounts and have the same bell housing mount so they will bolt to whatever transmission you have in your car. The difference is that the 2.5L has a longer stroke than the 2.2L provided by a cast crank while the 2.2L, only used in the Turbo II and Turbo IV cars that year had a forged crank. The 2.5L was used for all Turbo I and non turbo cars. The 2.5L also has balancing shafts to reduce vibration, the 2.2L does not. The balance shafts can rob up to 10HP. Other than that, they are identical.

3. You might gain power, and you might lose it. If you're going to put in a 2.2L, I suggest you convert to a Turbo II. The 2.5L can give you a torque advantage, but it's really about preference. I love my Turbo II. I'd also suggest swapping in an A-555 or an A-568 as they are the stronger transmissions from Chrysler.

4. The 2.6L was a Mitsubishi engine not noted for being very good and will not swap in easily, in case anyone is interested.

Chilton shows 2.2, 2.5, and 2.6 motors for that year Shadow so Im guessing a 2.2 will work but might lack the power you were used to. Best of luck.

It will fit if you change a few things like the transmission and engine mounts and also the 2.2 was carb and the 2.5 was fuel injected. Here are a few cars with the 2.5 liter that is interchangeable. Shadow/ Sundance, Daytona, Dakota, Caravan/Voyager and was available till 1995.
Good luck and hope this helps.

How do you get to the neutral safety switch


90% of all neutral safety switches are located on the transmission.
since you already have the part you can simply pop the hood and try to match the part up. on a 4 cylinder motor there is usually lots of room to look around, but i have came a across a few that you would have to lift up the car to get on the back side.

I have a 1992 dodge shadow.but the windshield wipers isn't working.I checked the motor is well,the terminal voltage is 12V,how can I continu to repair the 1992 dodge shadow's windshield wipers?


You posting is slightly confusing but I gather your windshield wipers stopped working.
The repair method is as follows;
) Check the fuse.
) Check the wiper motor. Turn the wipers on and listen for the hum of the motor.

If you hear the hum then the linkage has probably come loose. You will have to take the covers off
to get to the linkage for the wiper. You can either repair the parts, get salvage yard parts or replace with new part$.

If you do not hear the motor hum then you should verify electricity is getting to the motor. A simple
voltmeter can be used. If the motor is bad you can replace it. Call some auto supply stores for after-market motors or call salvage yards for parts.

1989 Dodge Shadow radiator fan won't come on. If I supply direct battery to the fan it comes on so I know the fan motor is good. What should I check? Thanks.


Sounds like the relay switch. Look in owners manual to see where it is located. I know some are under the dash and some in the engine compartment.
