Dodge Avenger, Coupe

The 4 cylinder motor is NOT the 4g63 motor, and the 4g63 is NOT a swap as easy as replace the mounts and you'll be fine. The 4 cylinder motor is the 420a motor, same as in the dodge neon, except in the neon version of the 420a motor the head is flipped around. the intake is in the front while the exhaust is in the back. In the avenger version of the 420 a motor the intake is on the back and the exhaust in the front. I have a 1998 Dodge avenger with the 4 cylinder motor that I turbocharged and I love it. I have had very little problems since I bought it 2 years ago. I know alot about the avenger and can help with problems that people are having. Feel free to contact me if anyone has any questions. For all those reading this check out www.aseclub.net it is the avenger/sebring club and they have many modified cars, as well as many stock cars they have all had the same problems you have experienced. Check out the forums, and please search for a problem before you post a new problem. It is free to join.
#109 of 198 O2 sensor help
Jan 17, 2006 (1:11 pm)
My check engine light has been on for a very long time. I was told my O2 sensor was the cause. I'm having someone fix it now, but ran into a problem. I need the part numbers for the 3 02 sensors (1 in the front and 2 in the rear). I am told from the dealership that there are only 2 sensors, but my mechanic is looking at 3. Can anyone help? I need the 02 sensor parts or part numbers so I can purchase them.

The only to tell is to remove the cap and take off the rotor. The rotors visually look the same it's the three flats on the rotor and the shaft that make it Large or small cams.

at stoplights my 95 avengers idles really rough, to the point where the whole car is shaking then when I go to drive off, the car barely drives and I hear a knocking noise from the engine. If I downshift into L the car flies off. What is wrong with my car?

I have a 97 dodge avenger with a four cylinder, five speed. I recently blew the 2.0 and am inserch of a new motor. i was wondering if the 2.5 liter v6 would fit into my application. the reason is they are a lot easier to find then the 2.0's. Any other motor applications that would work would be helpful.

There have been at least two Avengers aside from the TV show - the Hillman Avenger, and the Mitsubishi coupe with Dodge labels. The current Stratus is moving ot a Mitsubishi platofrm (as in dimensions and such) with Chrysler engineering. It's due very soon, and htere's a whole bunch of info at
along with spy photos and such.
FWIW, no quality predictions should be made by anyone on this model since it is completely, totally new except for the V6 engine and perhaps the automatic. There will even be a six-speed automatic which is completely new. It's not made by Mitsu and it's not designed by Mitsu - it's a cross breed. Heaven only knows what that will mean especially with the Mercedes bigots in charge.
