It will fit but your going to have to do a lot of engine management retrofit to have your engine run right unless you have the ECM for the engine also. Good luck and hope this helps.

Video on replacing motor mounts on a 1999 ford escort

I have no video of the job just written instructuions.

  • Park the vehicle on level ground and shut off the engine. Raise the front end of the Escort off the ground using the floor jack. Lower the vehicle onto jack stands placed under the frame to support the car.
  • 2Place the jack under the oil pan and raise the lift plate to the bottom of the oil pan. Remove the engine mount bolt using the 1/2-inch socket wrench. The engine mount bolt is in the center of the mount fitting in clear view.
  • Slowly raise the engine using the jack until the weight of the engine is removed from the engine mount. Pull the engine mount from the fitting and place the new mount in the fitting.
  • 4Lower the engine slowly and insert the bolt into the mounting hole. Tighten the mount bolt to 67.9 foot-pounds using the torque wrench.
  • 5Remove the bolt from the other engine mount the same way as the first one. Pull the mount from the fitting and insert the new one. Replace the bolt to the center of the mount fitting. Lower the engine to the frame and tighten the mount bolt to 67.9 foot-pounds.
  • 6Remove the jack from under the Escort. Raise the car off the jack stands, remove the stands and lower the car to the ground

    Looking to do a motor swap in a 98 sunfire...what motors fit?

    It is true, you can only put another 98 2.2 liter in it. They did come with a 2.4 liter but you have to swap the motor, transmission, wiring harness, computer, and God knows what else. I would go with the 2.2 liter and check into some performance aftermarket parts for the 2.2, computer chip, performance exhaust and so on, somewhere like Summit Racing.

    Can a 1992 3.1 v-6 from a grand am, be swapped into a newer cavalier or sunfire?

    The easy answer is no. transverse mounted engines are very hard to swap, and going from a larger car to a smaller frame car is nearly impossible, unless you feel like re-welding engine mounts, replacing the radiator, new fuel pump, new computer or full re-program. Total Cost, over $5000.

    1995 sunfire

    If you have to ask me such a question then you're not qualified to do the swap. Just so you know there isn't enough room on this site to address the issues (problems) you'll have in attempting such a swap. Better off just buying a 6.

    Engine Swap

    There are several engines that will fit the 2.2l Ecotec, 2.4L high out put motor, and I have actually seen a chevy cavalier that has a 3800 V6 in it if you want to go all out but in most cases sticking with the ecotec motor or the 2.4 High Out Put motor would be best they are two of the best motors for these cars and since the Sunfire is basically the same car as the cavalier almost any thing motor wise is inner change able between cars depending on the motors i own an 2004 chevy cavalier LS sport and a buddy of myn has a 2004 Pontiac Sunfire and both have the 2.2L Ecotec and are both Manual trans and even most of the interior parts are the same except for some of the dash board components hope this helps you out
