If this has been asked before, please accept my apology, and direct me to the correct thread. I have looked, and I am unable to find one.
We have an 02' 4 door sedan, automatic. We purchased the vehicle in it's current condition, for a mere $500.. The body and interior are in new condition, I mean NEW. This deal couldn't be passed up. When we purchased it this was all we knew, the fuel pump will engauge, and the starter will click, but the engine did not turn... at all! The timing chain is broke, and 2 of the front spark plugs have been hit by their pistons. I believe (without taking apart) that the pistons have been cracked.
The issue at hand. I want to swap out the 2.7l with a 3.3l? I understand that they both mount to the same automatic tranny. The area where I live, we can buy engines all day long. They are never in short supply, and you find yourself out no more than $700. I want to know, if what I am thinking is possible, what else will I have to change. The pcm and it's wire's? Anything else?
Rebuilding and swapping engines and tranny's are not foreign to me, but this compartment if pretty tight. I'm ready to do this, have any of you done this before?
Just for giggles, I have supplied the error codes:
P0455 - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Leak Detected
P0432 - Catalyst System Low Efficiency Bank 2
P1682 - Driver 5 Line 2
P0645 - Air Conditioning (A/C) Clutch Relay Control Circuit
P1683 - Driver 5 Line 3
P0300 - Engine Misfire Detected
P0302 - Cylinder 2 Misfire Detected
P0420 - Catalyst System Low Efficiency
P0442 - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Small Leak Detected

Will the 3.3 even fit into the engine bay? Thats the real question.. I am not the expert here but a lot of idiots tend to come on the board asking crazy *** questions that only somebody thats a solid mechanic type with solid equipment can fix. I predict that some of the senior members(a la the guys that know what the hell they are talking about) will come on here and give you a hard time because of you asking this question. I havent seen anybody drop anything other than the 2.7 back into a car that originally had a 2.7... you would need more than just an engine.. you would need all the wiring, computers, etc.. etc... so its probably not even worth the time unless you have nothing better to do with your life... just my 2c and expect the beating to come.
man I need those little pegs that hold up that piece that covers up where the battery is. plus the same little black plastic suckers that hold the door panels onto the door. Where are all the broke down *** sebrings in NC?
