What you propose will not work with your pcm. If you have 2 wires to the knock sensor, one is probably a reference wire and the other a signal. The computer will throw a code and will not understand the return signal.

I put a 97 engine in my 96 cavalier and it will not start. it has power at the coil and injector pulse but no spark. I had to change the crank sensor from the 96 to the 97 engine because it had the 3 wire...


There are several thongs that could cause this. Have you checked the ignition module? The wore harnesses or ecu could be different. A number of sensors on the new engine could be bad or incorrect.

Engine Swap


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

Motor swap now it will not start


Unfortunately, there is no easy solution here. I had the same problem with my race car. I swapped a 96 2.2 into my 97 racecar and ended up having to also swap the engine wiring harness, computer, instrament cluster and pass module. The engine harness will bolt to the interior harness even though the wire colors are not the same. Just make sure you match the large yellow wire on the 96 harness to the large purple wire on the 97 harness. It sounds pretty complicated but it only took me maybe an hour to perform the swap. Now I'm back up and running and will be racing again this weekend.
