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.

What would the resaon be for the horn not working on a 1995 sunfire pontiac


My '98 Chevy Cavalier has the same problem. Sunfire's and Cavalier's are pretty the exact same car, exept for the body. I'm currently trying to figure this problem out myself, once I know, I'll let you know.

I have a 1998 cavalier, we changed the starter twice and the ignition switch as well. The car will crank over three or four times and then the next time it acts like it wants to start it keep cranking even...


Product Safety - Ignition Circuit Thermal Events # 04002 - (02/18/2004)

Due to part availability, this recall is being conducted in three phases. Phase 1 will consist of 1998-1999 vehicles, phase 2 will consist of 2000 vehicles; and phase 3 will consist of 2001 vehicles. When sufficient parts are available to notify customers of 2000 and 2001 vehicles, you will be notified and will receive a new initiation report.
Recall - Ignition Circuit DefectCondition
General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 1998 model year Buick Skylark; 1998-2001 model year Chevrolet Cavalier; 1998 model year Oldsmobile Achieva; 1998 model year Pontiac Grand Am; and 1998-2001 model year Pontiac Sunfire vehicles. If the engine fails to start and the driver holds the key in the "start" position for an extended period, high current flows through the ignition switch, and sometimes produces enough heat to melt internal switch parts. If the switch is damaged, a fire could occur in the steering column, even with the engine off and the key removed. The fire could spread to the interior of the car, which could injure occupants of the car or cause damage to adjoining structures.

I swapped a complete 3.3 out of a 92 cutlass ceira into my 94 grand am and now i dont get spark. are the crank shaft sensors the same?


there is nothing the same on the two the 1992 has computer command control system and 1994 has the OBD II system so none of the 1992 sensors or injectors will work with the 1994 on board computer system......SORRY

I can't give you direct knowledge, from having personally done this swap before, but I can offer you that the 1990 Cavalier, did have a V6 as an option.
The 3.1 Liter V6 with MultiFuel Injection System.

Of course, you're going to need the ECM, (Computer), and the complete engine wiring harness also.

The SE and LE indicate opinions on the cars. Most of the parts will interchange. When doing engine changes, the best way is to swap the ECM also.

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
