Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

This engine is incorrect and will not run in your vehicle. The cam and crank sensor tone wheel patterns are different between the two because the car has an NGC engine control system and the engine you installed used an SBEC control system. The crank sensor tone wheel is part of the crankshaft and only serviced with it. You'll want to obtain the correct engine for the application.

I hope that helps! My goal is your satisfaction today. If you feel I've been professional and helpful, your 5-star rating at this time is most appreciated. However, if you still need my help you can reply back here and I'll respond as soon as possible! Thank you!

I don't understand why when u look up swap 2.0 sohc to 2.4 dohc neon 204 and 01 p t crusier are ok interchangeable an can use harness pcm there are just minor adjustments my harness is a 38 pin
Expert:  sprinkles08 replied 1 month ago.

They aren't interchangeable as I mentioned. One is controlled by an NGC system and the other is SBEC and they have different crankshafts. The earliest PT Cruiser engine that would have been compatible would be 2003.5.You need the correct engine for your car.
