Chrysler 1.8, 2.0 2.4 engine

The Chrysler 1.8, 2.0, and 2.4 are engines designed originally for the and Plymouth Neon compact These engines were based on their predecessors, the 2.2 2.5 engine. sharing the same bore. The DOHC head was by Chrysler with input the Chrysler-Lamborghini team that the Chrysler/Lamborghini Formula 1 V12 engine in the 1990s. [ 1 ]

Beginning in 2005, engines were phased out in of the new World engine built by the Engine Manufacturing Alliance


1.8 [ edit ]

A 1,796#160;cc 109.6#160;cu in) variant is made in the Michigan engine plant for (non-US) Chrysler Neons. It 115#160;hp DIN (85#160;kW) and 112#160;lb·ft and meets Euro III standards.

2.0 [ ]

The 1,996#160;cc (1.996#160;L; 121.8#160;cu in) of the engine was the first offered. began in 1994 in Trenton, MI. and it was in many Chrysler Corporation It is available in both SOHC and 4-valve versions.

The engine a cast-iron block, with with shallow crowns to weight.

The block uses a featuring a perimeter wall transverse webbings for durability and operation at high rpm’s. The are attached to fracture-split forged metal connecting rods semi-floating press-fit pins. A oil pump is driven directly the crankshaft on the front of the engine. A rubber timing belt is to drive the valvetrain. Early 2.0#160;L engines used a tensioner to tension the timing

2000 and 2001 engines a mechanical spring-loaded tensioner tended to wear out prematurely, serious valve and piston upon belt failure due to the design of the engine. 2002+ utilized a different mechanical The water pump is driven the timing belt, with the pump housing cast into the engine block

1995 model year had three features that set apart from later year engines. The positive ventilation (PCV) system a plastic oil separator box that was directly to the block itself; the hose and PCV valve hoses to the box, and connected to the induction Later model year featured a PCV system that was to the cylinder head valve

The second feature was internal in – the crankshaft main were keyed into the on the right rear of each web. Later model featured keys machined on the front of each web. considerations are important when a rebuild or replacement of this in a given vehicle. The third would be a slightly bigger cam was changed on 1996 and up SOHC due to a rough idle when the A/C was on.

1995 cam is now being sold by as a power upgrade for 1996 and up engines, but it can also easily be at auto recyclers or salvage for a cheap price.

2002 and earlier model engines featured a one-piece nodular iron crankshaft counterweights present on either of each crank pin. A tone wheel was present number 1 and number 2 connecting rod and was machined such that a magnetic pickup mounted to the block could read the of the crankshaft as it rotates during operation. 2003 and later year engines switched to a crankshaft.

The tone wheel was to attach to the crankshaft using bolts, had a tone pattern was substantially different from model year engines, and was to the rear of the crankshaft. For this these engines are generally not between the 2002- and 2003+ years.

Up to late 1999, engine type suffered oil leaks between the block and head. The threads for the head near the 4th cylinder were too shallow at the factory, preventing the from properly sealing. The oil in the composite gasket would from the gasket causing a

Chrysler Corporation used different designs of composite head gasket in an attempt to this problem. In 1998, a multi-layer steel head was introduced that eliminated oil leak. It can be identified by a small tab with a hole through its sticking out between the block and between the 2nd and 3rd cylinders.

A588 [ ]

The A588 is the SOHC version in most post 2001 products. The ECB SOHC version, in earlier models, is identical for the crank trigger wheel. equipped with the newer wheel for the new NGC engine computer, the version cannot be directly into a vehicle originally with the earlier style using an SBEC (Single Engine Controller).

The aluminum is prized among enthusiasts as easy to port and polish for flow characteristics.

manifold features unequal-length runners that are switched engine operation by an electric that controls butterfly-type in the shorter intake runners. The runners are always open, and a mild supercharging effect due to length between 3000#160;rpm and The shorter runners, open 4800#160;rpm to redline at wide-open also provide a tuned effect due to their length.

The runners are also opened at throttle below 3000#160;rpm to an intake path to each that is as free-flowing as possible.

2.4 and 2.4 Turbo [ edit ]

A Chrysler 2.4 Neon Turbo engine in a Dodge Neon SRT-4 .

The itself never carried a aspirated 2.4L engine in its but a 150#160;hp (110#160;kW) N/A version was in Chrysler’s JA. JX, and JR platform cars 1995 to 2006 along the Jeep Liberty from to 2005 and the Dodge Caravan and Voyager from 1996 to The code for this engine was As with some other of various architecture used in EDZs used in the Liberty Chrysler’s PowerTech name.

Unlike the 1.8/2.0L engines the is a non-interference design.

The SRT-4 variant utilized a 2.4L The turbocharged EDV / EDT is similar to the regular Output is 245#160;hp (183#160;kW) SAE at 5300#160;rpm with 260#160;lb·ft of torque at 2200-4400#160;rpm.

This code A855, has a cast partially open deck and split crankcase. It uses an compression ratio with cast eutectic aluminum pistons, forged connecting with cracked caps and 9#160;mm rod bolts, and a cast steel crankshaft. The cylinder is cast aluminum, with the heads being a 48-degree design with a partial between the intake valves.

The are actuated by hydraulically adjusted arms with roller cam

The SRT-4 and PT Cruiser Turbo use the engine block and heads The manifold, turbo plumbing, and are all different. The cast-aluminum 8-row intercooler is mounted in the front, and the Mitsubishi TD04LR-16Gk turbocharger has a 2 (1#160;sq#160;in) turbine inlet. The compressor housing features a bypass valve, and the turbo is cast into the exhaust with a loop-around flow The stock SRT-4 has a maximum level of 15#160;psi (100#160;kPa )
