Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

well the upper motor mount bolts broke and the motor dropped breaking the oil lines and siezing up the motor. So months of work for a short period of the racing, lol. We have a 97 neon 2.0L DOHC engine that we will try to put in now. Atleast we already have the computer for it in the car. Now that I...

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

Okay. Thanks for the information. We are going to try the original injectors tonight to see if the EM gets cherry read. We will also pull the spark plugs to see what they are doing.

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

Do you think the computer from the 97 DOHC neon is not communicating with the Stratus motor?
I was thinking that the cam magnet would effect the timing (such as retard or advance the firing), but I guess it really doesnt?

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

Haha... If it was not a racecar, I am not sure how these guys do this motor swap. A lot more work involved then I imagined. Maybe its the year car that makes it difficult.

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

This is where I am not sure. I rewired (moved spark plug wires) so that the car would fire. I had it wrong at first because the car wouldnt start, then we had it running on 2 cylinders and now know its firing on all 4. With the injectors, I just moved them to copy the firing order. So #1 is now firi...

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

So we got a new problem... When we are racing the exhaust manifold is blazing red when she comes off the track. Car seems to have power but it is definitely over heating. When I checked the plugs #1 was wet and #2,3, and 4 were all white. So it must be lean. We increased the injectors from the musta...

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

So we got it running right today. The firing order was defiantly off and even the above didnt work. The firing order for the 97 Neon PCM to the 2000 Stratus 2.4L is 1-2, 2-1, 3-4, 4-3.
It runs like a bad out of hell now. lol. I still have some other items to tidy up, then Ill put up some pictures.

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

I am going to try this sequence below in the morning. I found this on the neons.org forum posted by 1GN Cory. Its a 95 wiring harness swap for a 2.4L

"This is using the newest sequence by "90turbovan" following 4-2, 2-1, 1-3, 3-4."

What I am currently doing is 4-1, 1-2, 2-3, 3-4.

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

So the original car was a 2000 SOHC. When we got the car I stripped all the wires out under the dash except what allowed the car to run. I left everything in the engine bay installed. Then we just installed the 2.4L Stratus motor. We tried using the wiring harness but could not get the motor to star...

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

Is the DOHC PCM an ATX pcm or an MTX pcm? Yes it is a ATX. The stock FPR is still on the fuel tank, correct? Yes it is So the wife jumped in it last night and it seems to be idling okay and revs up when she hits the throttle. Once she puts it into gear (Drive, 1st, or 2nd) it goes about 3MPH with th...

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

I will look back through the forum for the correct injector and plug move. Its running but will test tonight if it wants to actually go. When we moved it around the shop the front tires seemed like their where skipping. We left the AM transmission from the 2000 SOHC engine in the car. Will the DOHC ...

So I got to start off by saying WOW! This was a long, tiring project but we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. There are just a couple more things to get figured out but I will say that luckily I had a 97 2.0 DOHC motor available. We ended up using the IM, throttle body, and com...

Hello Demons, I have been searching for my parts list. This weekend, I did not get much done. Rotated the cam magnet 90 deg. clockwise, and attempted to pull the pulley off. Broke my harbor freight pulley puller. This week, my friend plans to grab one from his work to try and pull it off. Anyways, I...

Re: 2000 Neon 2.0 SOHC Engine Swap

Thank you so much for the help and information. This is great news about the motor. I plan to just use it since I already have it and do not want to get more involved trying to make a PT motor work. Also I just confirmed with copart that the motor was actually from a 2000 Stratus and the VIN "X". So...
