there is a 2.4 eco now. the 2.4 twin cam was discontinued in in 2002. the 2.4 eco is in things like the solstice, hhr, and other small vehicles.

now, i dont know what sort of school you are going to, i know damn well that you cannot spell or use normal sentence structure. do not try to blame this on your lack of keyboard skills either. if you want to convince people of your better than average knowledge, i would suggest at least using correct grammar. it usually adds a little believability to your story.

Has anyone else heard of the ecoteck spontaniously blowing the timing chain for no apparent reason, We came across this problem in a customers car a few years back when the engines were still just in the saturn L series cars. Couldn't figure out what had caused it so we just swaped in a used motor

p.s. The 2.3 was better
What's left is still there cause I haven't poked it yet
