How to identify these engines, sure there are easier ways, but here is the hard way.
Oh yeah, you can see the build date from going underneath the car, you don't need to take it out lol.
VIN decoding may not work for pre 1988 models.
Enter VIN in caps on the Dodge site, or else.
Dodge 2.2L cylinder head removal and post-mortem
The Dodge 600 convertible I picked up a few years ago as a very cheap
Craigslist find never ran right.
I finally got around to pulling the head for an inspection and boy did this
thing have problems.
This video also marks the world premiere of Weedeater Man for 2011. You'll
even get a brief glimpse of him at the controls of his trusty weed trimmer.

how long can that 50k mile 2.5L 4 cyl go bouncing off the rev limiter and
being fed oxygen from my cutting torch at 100 PSI
1989 Chrysler LeBaron in-depth tour
This is a video of my 1989 Chrysler LeBaron. The color is light pewter. It
has a 2.2L turbo II engine, 16" lace
wheels, leather, and an Infinity 1 audio system.
I thought it might be interesting to put up a video of this car as well,
although it isn't in a as good shape as all of my other cars are/have been.
The car was hit by a truck during the summer of 2008 while it was parked
alongside a street. I decided to keep it and restore it. Because it has had
a complete lack of maintenance making the car technically sound took some
time. There were many thing that were worn and had never seen any upkeep at
all. Furthermore, I decided to have the engine swapped to a turbo version, which turned out to be a very bad
ide because the revised engine broke down after two rides because of a bad
I didn't have it resprayed yet, partly because I first want to be sure that
this engine WILL keep on running.
Enjoy the video!
Diagnosing the Engine Knock
Trying to figure out what the engine noise is. Looks like lifters that
won't drain down plus maybe some plugged up oil squirters.
SuperCharged 5hp Briggs&Stratton
Here is a SuperCharged engine built from a 5hp (model13...) Briggs and
It uses a Modified turboCharger from a
Chrysler 2.2 , built by Garrett. I have to that my friend Clarence for
machining the Supercharger bearing
housing etc., as he does awesome work! He has helped out with some of my
other engines also :)) The blower spins at 6 times crankshaft speed.
We have not run this engine in this configuration, but did run it with the
carb. on the compressor inlet, it was a bit of a pain to start that way, so
my son decideto run a pressurized carb. Hopefully it runs OK. One thing is
for sure, it isn't going to be quiet!
