I have a 2004 GT PT Cruiser and I need a new engine, I am curious if I can put a 2005 GT PT Cruisers engine in as a swap. If not what engines my I use to replace my 2004 GT PT's Engine? I went to look at one off ebay and they are telling a 2005 wont work with a 2004? Thanks for any advice.

Update, I found out that the engine that I was looking at is a 2005 Limited edition Turbo, Not a GT, if this helps to answer the question. Thanks for reading the post please reply.

The only direct interchange for a 2004 engine is another 2004 engine.

There’s a chance if you have the 2004 and 2005 engines side by side you could swap enough parts to make it work as the bare blocks interchange. Probably not worth the chance.

It appears the 2004 didn't have EGR but the 2005 does.

Thanks

"The 4667086AG-D casting was used on the PT/Turbo from ’03 through ’06. The A.I.R. holes were never drilled for this application. We believe that the turbo motors came without EGR in ’04, but it appears that they had EGR in ’05 and ’06, so it’s best to drill them all for EGR and include the plate and gasket for the ones that came without EGR.:"
