Will a 2.2sfi thats it in a 2000 fit in a 2005 cav. That have a blowen up 2.2 ecotech please give me a call at

you need to be careful on this, the way to determine if a certain engine will fit your vehicle, look at your vin number located on the drivers side at the very bottom of your windshield. the 8th digit is the engine code, and the 10th digit is the year make. as in my case my 8th digit is an "f" which refernces a 2.4l ohc wo/egr, the year codes (10th digit) are as follows:

the engine codes (8th digit) are as follows:
4.........2.2l ohv
d........2.3l ohc
t........2.4l ohc
f........2.4l ohc

the biggest thing is wether your vehicle has an egr (exhaust gas recirculation) the engines with this will not work in ones that do not and vice-versa!
hope this helps!

Gentlepersons... have 1992SL1 engine died... gong to replace it ,,, but all involved want to know engine type dual cam? vs ? ... can you tell me how to determine whats in the car now.. vin# nails it...

That is pretty easy. If your Saturn is an SL1 it is single cam if it is an SL2 it is dual cam. That is the only difference between an SL1 and an SL2 - Saturn didn't even bother to put a tag or emblem anywhere on the body to differentiate between the the two models. The 8th digit in the VIN will confirm this for you. If the 8th digit is "7" it is a Dual Overhead Cam (DOHC) engine. If the 8th digit is a "9" then it is a Single Overhead Cam (SOHC) engine. When you have seen both engines, it is pretty obvious by simply looking at them. The DOHC cam cover is much wider and has 2 "humps" with spark plugs and wires going down the center between the humps. The SOHC cam cover is narrow and the plugs and wires go down one side.

Also in the 1992 model year, the DOHC engine was equipped with Multiport Fuel Injection. (MFI) The fuel injectors (4 of them) were located in the top of the intake manifold. The SOHC engine had Throttle Body Injection (TBI) The two injectors were located in the throttle body.

I don't have any pictures of the cam covers, but I have pictures of the cam cover gaskets (AKA Valve Cover Gaskets) you can very easilly see the difference.

What motor is interchangeable with 1999 cheverlot s10

what ever motor is in it . If you have a 4.3 w motor then thats is the one that you need to use . if you have a 4.3 x motor or 2.2 motor . Now if your asking if you can put a differnt year motor in you truck yes a lot of years fit your truck as long as you keep the same vin code on the motor (x or w . ect ) i am not sure what your vin code engine number is the 8th digit in the vin ,that tells you what engine is in the truck . now if you are changing from a 4 cylinder to a v6 you will need to change all the wiring harness and the computer system .The also make v8 converison kits too .but to do this kind of engine swap comes with a great price tag attached to it

Where is the engine number located on a ford mustang engine 6cyl 2001?

For 2001 Ford Mustang 3.8L SFI 6cyl engine, with which your specific vehicle is equipped, can be most easily identified by the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), located on either the VIN tag, mounted in the upper left-hand corner of the instrument panel, or on the vehicle certification label, located on the driver-s side door pillar. The engine identifying code is the 8th digit of the VIN. The engine VIN codes are as follows:

Where is the ac compressor relay located

Hi - we're gonna need more than just "Acura" ---- model year and engine size, also 2WD/4WD and number of cylinders.
Engine code is 8th digit of VIN, and model year (I can do the translation) is the 10th digit of VIN.
