A modular engine is built around four modules:


A modular engine is built around four modules:

  • the intake module
  • the cylinder head module (RH)
  • the cylinder head module (LH)
  • the lower engine module

While not all repairs can take advantage of the modular concept, most out-of-vehicle repairs benefit due to the reduction of necessary time and labor.

The basic engine components consist of the following:

  • single overhead camshafts
  • two valves per cylinder
  • sequential multiport fuel injection (SFI)
  • aluminum cylinder heads (6049)
  • cast iron, 90-degree V-shaped cylinder block
  • individual ignition coils for each spark plug
  • composite-material intake manifold
  • large-bore throttle body

Engine (DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING)

For basic mechanical concerns, refer to Section. Refer to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) manual.

Bearing Whine
Bearing Whine Bearing whine is a high-pitched sound similar to a whistle. It is usually caused by worn/damaged pinion bearings, which are operating at driveshaft speed. Bearing noise occurs at all driving speeds. This distinguishes it from gear whine which ...

Installation
Removal 1. Raise and support the vehicle. 2. Remove the rear wheel and tire assemblies. 3. CAUTION: Remove the rear brake calipers to prevent drag during the drive pinion bearing preload adjustment. CAUTION: Do not allow the calipers to hang from the bra ...
