auto to manual swap almost done....help
Thursday, June 05, 2014 10:08 AM
So ive read many posts..even faqs and stickys. What I have is 97 2.2l auto car. I've reaplaced everything firewall forward with 98 2.2l engine and five speed...using 98 manual harness and computer.its all done in car ready to roll. Only problem is no start it sounds like it wants to start..has fuel and spark. Just will not start. Im thinking is electrical problem...but not sure. Any help would be awesome as this is a long-term goal almost complete. Thanks jbo members!

Did you swap the cluster? If not, relearn is necessary. Here's a Link how to do it. Also, did both cars have either a digital or analog odometer? Correct me if i'm wrong, but im pretty sure the 1998-1/2+ have a 90-250 reading, while the 1998-1/2 and older use a 0-90 ohm reading for the fuel level sending unit. But i don't think that would matter for the car to start.

Both cars were analog clusters. Ok so tried steps in write up ,but do not know why my antitheft light doesn't flash like it states in instructions. Fyi all lights on cluster r on. Thanks for all input keep it coming. Idk why this is so hard,everything has been matched in year except inside car.thanks all.

Which ICM are you using? The 97 year ICM and the 98 ICM are different and aren't interchangeable. Since your using the 98 ECM, be sure your not using the 97 ICM. They look the same and are easy to switch around.
