Engine Chrysler EBD

The Chrysler EBD 1.8-liter gasoline engine was produced in Trenton from 1994 to 1999 and was installed only on the European modification of the very first generation of the Neon model.

The Neon series also includes internal combustion engines: ECB, ECC, ECH, EDT, EDZ and EDV.

The EBD is a 1.8 L (1796 cc/109.6 cid), under-bored variant of the 2.0 L engine. This engine features a square 83 mm (3.27 in) bore and stroke with a 10.0:1 compression ratio. This engine was built at the Trenton Engine Plant for use in export market (non-US) Chrysler Neons. It produces 86 kW (115 hp) at 5750 rpm and 151 N⋅m (111 lb⋅ft) at 4950 rpm and meets Euro III emission standards.

The engine was installed on:

  • Chrysler Neon 1 (SX) in 1994 – 1999.

Disadvantages of the EBD engine

  • First of all, this is a very rare motor that was installed only on the European Neon;
  • The cooling system is distinguished by a low resource: its hoses, thermostat are cracking;
  • And therefore, overheating often occurs here with a breakdown of the gasket and warping of the cylinder head;
  • On long runs, an oil burner or grease leaks from oil seals are often encountered;
  • Monitor the condition of the timing belt, as when it breaks, the valve most often bends.
