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

How can i tell what kind of alternator is in my car so i can replace it


You can just remove it and take it to an auto parts store and swap it! Or you can tell the make, model and engine type and they will tell you what alternator fits your car.

Call the salvage yard and tell them the year,make and the engine size and they will tell you if there are any other engines that will work on this model.Depending on the wire harness that is used will make a difference.Good luck.

95 sunfire engine swap


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.

91 Toyota Previa AWD - Swap original engine for Previa Supercharged engine


I do a lot of work on Toyota Previa before; including rebuilt engine, swapping engine and transmission and lot of things in between, but never swap a normal aspirated engine to a supercharged engine or diesel. Since i have some experience in Previa, I would like to share my opinion with you regarding your plan to swapping the normal aspirated Previa engine to a Supercharged engine. When you do a swapp like that, you will not only be dealing with just swapping engine, but some wiring, computer, throttle body, air cleaner assembly, extra frame and pulley on the accessory items, transmission as well as a right rear end to get the correct gear ratio to accomodate the new engine and transmission. I can go on even more, but let me tell you this, beside less headache, it would definitely cheaper if you were to find a Supercharged Previa and fix it up. However, if you are totally motivated to do this project, keep in mind, this engine swap will be a long term and time consuming project.l I wish you best of luck and have fun!

Clutch problems


Best clutch to uae in the sunfire is the AC Delco replacement cluch kit. It can be bought at most parts stores, and it will come with the throwout bearing, preasure plate and new disk. If your not equipped with a car lift and engine supports craddle, it can be difficult.
