Re: Parts Compatibility

I broke the oil dipstick tube off when I was moving the block around. Does anyone know if an autozone spectre brand dipstick would fit without leaks or if a 96-98. Sebring dip tube would work. I’m having trouble finding any other replacements

Re: Run Stand Hookup

Yikes!!! That's a little more work than I would like to do. I like the idea of just mounting a starter on, this way I can at least check oil pressure and flush the oil before it ever runs. I also wanted to flush the coolant passages throughout the engine, any recommendations on how to do this withou...

Run Stand Hookup

I would like to run a rebuilt engine on stand, but I need to know how to wire things up to get it started. How would I hookup the ecu, engine wiring harness, starter to power without using the fuse box?

Re: Parts Compatibility

I have the engine back together with the correct crankshaft. I'm doing the timing stuff on it now and when I rotate the crank counter clockwise the belt works its way on to the cam sprocket water pump and tensioner. But when I rotate it clockwise it works its way about a 1/4 in off. I'm thinking one...

Re: Parts Compatibility

I have it all torn back apart and I’ll clean up the original crank to better assess it’s damage. I know 1 & 4 rod journals are scored but not excessively so I’ll see if I can polish it out

Re: Parts Compatibility

So the crank sensor on the 02 is an inductive sensor so it reads magnetic flux. So every time the lobe rotates in front of the sensor a voltage is created so it should be able to communicate with the ecm

Re: Parts Compatibility

The original crank is badly scored and would require a grind and oversized bearings. I don’t see any markings or differences in the cranks loves that my sensor would be reading. How does the sensor on the 95-02 read the position?

Re: Parts Compatibility

So now that the engine is all put together, I realized that the old crank and new crank are not the same. The new crank must be from 03-05 because it has the crank position sensor wheel toward the flywheel end of it where as the 98-02 cranks don’t have this and the sensor is on the pulley end. Will ...

Re: Rebuilding a Cylinder head

Not part of the cylinder head but I'm at the point were I'm installing the pistons. I'm having trouble getting the piston pin into the connecting rod. Am I supposed to heat up the con rod to expand the bore a little bit? or do something else?

I'm rebuilding my 2002 2.0l neon engine and am planning on putting DOHC pistons in from a 1997 neon. From my understanding the 02 engine is an A588 and the 97 engine is an ECC....but I've read on here somewhere that the blocks are the same (which is why the DOHC pistons work in a SOHC block) the onl...

Engine overhaul and upgrades

So awhile ago my 02 neon engine died. Driving to school somehow I got a hole in my oil pan and I didn't catch it so I drove the car with basically no oil for maybe a mile before it died. Not entirely sure what is damaged yet because I haven't taken it apart. I kinda want to do a minor NA engine buil...

Is it possible to achieve 500hp with a Neon engine? I would imagine an srt4 could but would have to be built. What about a 2.0 sohc? What kind of HP do you think a 2.0 could make with a stroker crank with .080 over sized pistons, big cams, and a turbo. My engine recently died and I'm contemplating b...

What springs and retainers should go with that? I would imagine stiffer springs are required but I haven’t seen any companies really recomme...

So I am the third owner of my neon and when I got it I noticed that when I went hard on the brakes the front driver side would lock the wheel up easily.

Re: 10mm Spacers

What is the thickest spacer you would run? I planned on replacing bushings with polyurethane bushings to be able to act semi normally with the increased leverage arm I’d be creating. As for the wheel bearings, I think those will last plenty long and when they go out I’ll just replace them.
