Default ENGINE SWAP

Hello PT Owners,

I am new to the PT scene. I have a 2006 PT, 2.4 engine, 5 speed manual transmission.

I want to swap out the engine. What years can I do a direct swap other than 2006? Can I swap an engine from an automatic? Do I need to take the PCM from the donor car?

Thank you,

Andy

Based on what I know, the non-turbo 2.4L PT engines from 2003 and up are basically the same for both manual and auto transmissions.. There's only some slight differences in a few sensors and wiring. Use your original 2006 intake manifold with manual throttle body, sensors and wiring harness and you should be fine. If you go to a salvage yard, they may have a cross reference that will confirm this.

But an engine from a 2001/2002 PT will not work and I wouldn't try to use 2.4L from a different Chrysler either. There's more variation there than you might think.
