i thought cavaliers z24 have 2.4 engine???
i was looking at a cavalier z24 and it had a ecotec 2.2 engine whats the deal?
what year was it?
it was a 2002 this is the link...
It's listed incorrectly. Some ****tard put the Z24 badging on the car to
appear cool. The VIN 3G1JH12F12S232440 checked comes up as the LS Coupe,
which comes standard with the 2.2L DOHC Ecotec engine.
VIN Check Results:
Model: Cavalier LS Sport
Style/Body: 2 Door Coupe
Engine: 2.2L I-4 MPI DOHC
Country of Assembly: Mexico
nothing wrong with the ecotec, i have one in mine!:laughing:
I think it's a very different engine in Vauxhalls.....If anybody knows different, feel free to batter me, lol
it isnt different, its a GM engine designed in USA, all vauxhalls upwards
from the last (Vauxhall-1995/96) Cavalier uses them!
mine is a X18XEV engine, but wikipedia (although sometimes unreliable) only have the 2litre details!
click here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X20XEV)
heres what found on mine.

What I was referring to was the fact that alot of the time, although the same manufacturer, engines are different in looks and capacity etc....It might be just the fact that our units are covered in plastic that masks their true identity....
i suppose so! (what do you mean about 'true identity'? in its 11 year period, my car hasnt had one major proble with its engine (as the AA tell me!)
Not sure what you mean there, lol. I meant that the plastic, although it looks good, masks what the engine really looks like. To be honest it's more so on newer lumps, the older ones (like in your Vectra) still look like engines :thumbs:
i thought when you said "It might be just the fact that our units are
covered in plastic that masks their true identity"
you meant their troubles etc:laughing: (its early morning and ive ha a busy night finishing work 11:45pm)
Wow did you guys EVER take this thread offtopic....
How has it gone Off Topic? we're still talking about EcoTec engines.....:laughing:
Who cares about the Ecotec cause a 2002 is not Ecotec they werent produced until 2003
Actually the dohc 2.2 is not the ecotec 2.2, did the badges say ztype or z24 did the engine say ecotec, and 2002 should have either the 2.2 or 2.4 dohc
