Asked by Sep 17, 2012 at 07:56 PM about the 2003 Pontiac Sunfire Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What engine would fit in a 2003 pontiac sunfire, standard transmission, 2.2l eco-tech?
I bought the car, checked the oil when i did, and it was full. I did 350km, and the valves started ticking.
When I checked the oil, it was empty. My dad said to just keep driving till it died, then we'll change the
motor in it. Well, it took 3 quarts of oil, and now it knocks. I'm looking for a car that's in rough shape, but
that the engine still runs good in, to swap the engines. The problem is, 2003 is the year that pontiac made
the eco-tech motors a standard thing. What engine would fit my car?
