Customer Question

A 2002 alero ecotech 2.2liter engine has been modified. It was a 4 cylinder turned into a 6 cylinder. What kinds of timing, firing, or fuel injectorproblems could it cause?

if the car was previously a 4 cylinder engine and the v6 has been fitted then you would need to also replace the engine ECU, engine wiring loom and possibly the fusebox too

changing the ECU for another part type is not trivial as this will also need the involvement of the dealer to recode the security module and body control module to communicate with the engine ECU

if all of this has been done then
