Default 2.0/2.3/2.5L Family

Ford’s 2.0/2.3/2.5 litre engine family


These motors are commonly referred to as either the Lima or simply the 2.X OHC (Over Head Cam) engines. They started life based on the German designed 2.0 EAO Sport motors that were first introduced to this country in the Mercury Capri’s from the early 70’s. They share nothing with the 2.3-2.5 litre HSC motors that were offered in the passenger car line from ’84-’91. The 2.3 first debuted in the 1974 Pinto using a progressive 2Bbl Webber/Holley carb and a points distributor. In ’75 they were upgraded to a Duraspark ignition system. They remained unchanged until about ’81 when the intake ports were changed from an oval to a D shape (flat floor). The 2.0/2.3 litre versions that were offered in Rangers starting in ’83 used a different head having four evenly spaced round holes of equal size. A 2.0 litre 1-bbl carbed version was offered in Rangers from ’83-’85, and in ’87-’88 with a 2-bbl in some parts of the US, Canada and Mexico. EFI was added to the engines in ’85. In ’89 the 2.3 was changed to a DIS (Distributorless Ignition System) ignition utilizing a new 8-plug head. This head had larger evenly spaced D-shaped intake ports and was used until the end of production of the 2.5 in ‘01. The 2.5 litre version was only offered from ‘98 To ’01, when the engine was replaced by a 2.3 litre DOHC Duratec based engine.

In ’79-‘81 a high compression drawthru carb’ed turbo version of the 2.3 was offered. In ’83-‘88 a lower compression EFI turbo version was offered in T-birds, Cougars, Mustang SVOs and Merkur XR4Ti’s (through ’89).

Some of the changes to the motor over the years were:
Rear main seal changed from a two piece to a one piece design in ’86.
Roller cams were installed from ’89 on in Rangers and ’91 on in Mustangs.
Crankshaft main journal sizes were reduced starting in ’88.
CPS (Cam Position Sensor) was added starting in ’95 (’94 in California). At this time Ford changed to a 104-pin computer (it was a 60-pin) and moved the DIS functions into the computer, previously the DIS system had a TFI module as a separate unit mounted on the front of the intake manifold.

Major engine specs are

.......................................2.0........ .2.3 Early....2.3 Late.....2.5
Bore...............................3.520........3. 780.........3.780......3.780
Stroke............................3.126........3.1 26.........3.126......3.401
Bore Spacing...................4.173........4.173...... ...4.173......4.173
Main Journal Dia..............2.3986......2.3986.......2.2055.. ....2.2055
Rod Journal Dia...............2.0468......2.0468.......2.0468. ....2.0468
Con. Rod Length..............5.2047......5.2047.......5.204 7.....5.457
Crank Center to deck.......8.368........8.368.........8.368......8 .368
Piston pin height...............1.583........1.583.........1. 583.....1.2105

Differences between major engine parts are as follows:

Blocks-
2.0 is an underbored 2.3, with the exception of the bore the blocks are identical to all
2.3’s.
’75-’88 2.3’s are interchangeable.
’89-’94 same as ’83-’88 2.3’s but have a smaller main journal saddle, the oil pan seal
surface was changed in ‘87 to eliminate the 4 piece seal and holes were added in
the front to bolt on the DIS’s crank trigger assembly.
’95-‘01 similar to the ’89-‘95’s but a Cam Position Sensor was added behind the aux
sprocket, the hole for the distributor was eliminated and the oil pump was moved
in place of the aux. shaft itself.
Turbo blocks are identical to the ’83-’88 Ranger blocks but have an additional boss w/ a
hole threaded in the pass. side about way back that provides a place to drain the
lubricating oil back into the engine from the turbo.

Cranks-
2.0 and early 2.3 cranks are identical.
Late 2.3 cranks have smaller main journals.
2.5 cranks are identical to 2.3’s except they have a longer stroke.

Rods-
2.0 and 2.3 (including turbo) rods are identical up through at least ’94. In fact they still
have the original D4 (’74) casting number on them.

Pistons-
The 2.0 pistons are unique and don’t interchange.
The 2.3 pistons are all the same excluding the turbo versions, which were forged. Low
compression (8.0-1) in the ’83-‘88’s and high compression (9.0-1) in the ’79-
‘81’s.
The 2.5 pistons are similar to the 2.3’s but have a different wrist pin height.

Heads-
All 2.0/2.3/2.5 heads will physically bolt in place of each other, they all have similar
exhaust port shape and placement. All cams are interchangeable as long as they
are used with the proper followers. Later model ('95 and newer) roller cam
followers cannot be easily swapped onto an older head as the valve stem size was
reduced in the newer heads and matching slot in the follower was reduced.
Early 2.0 and 2.3 heads have the same small round intake ports spaced evenly apart, they
differ from each other in their valve sizes though
.
There are several variations on the 2.3 heads though they break down into 4 distinct types:

1. Passenger car oval port heads-’74-’80 Mustang, Pinto, Fairmont, Bobcat, etc.
2. Passenger car D-port head-’81-’95? T-bird, Mustang, Etc.
3. Truck round port- ’83-’85 Ranger
4. Truck D-port- ’89-’01 Ranger. The '89-'94's and '95-'01's have different combustion chambers and ports. IMHO, the newer head is better designed

Misc. automotive calculations
http://www.bgsoflex.com/auto.html



I'll be filling more things in here soon, any and all suggestions and contributions are appreciated.



Engine and component weights, all are +/- a pound or so. (bathroom scale)

Bare 2.3 large journal crank-----33#

Bare 2.5 crank---------------------40#

Bare 2.3 turbo block (w/ caps)--105#

Set of 4 2.5 pistons and rods-----10#

Cam and roller followers----------5#

Manual tranny flywheel-----------18#

Auto tranny flexplate---------------3#

Short block (w/ pan, flywheel, water pump + dist)-212#

Head (w/ manifolds but no cam and followers)-85#

Bare head---------------------------54#

Steel rocker cover-----------------2.7#

Turbo (Garrett T03)----------------25#


So, if my math is correct a fully assembled engine, less timing belt, cover and head bolts but including a MT flywheel and manifolds weighs 305# (Add 25# for a non-intercooled turbo motor)

Addditional bits...

2.5 piston w/ rings, wristpin and small rod end-1.56#
2.5 large rod end w/o bearing shells--------------.9375#
2.3 N/A piston w/ wristpin and small rod end---1.9375#
2.3 large rod end w/ bearing shells---------------1.1688#
2.3 N/A standard bore piston------------------------1.15#
2.3 N/A wrist pin--------------------------------------.32#
2.3 N/A rod-------------------------------------------1.40#
2.3 large journal bearing shells----------------------.09#/pr

I'll revise these a bit later.



Advertised horsepower and torque ratings.

Passenger car (Pinto, Mustang, etc.)

Year..........Hp.............torque
'74........102@5200....122@3200
'75........83@4800......109@2800

Posted by Yakk:
Here's what the Chilton Ranger BII book (1983-1990) says in regards to RBV

Engine/Year
2.0L ...............HP..............TQ(LB-FT)......CR..
'83-'86........73@ 4000........107@ 2400.....9.0:1
'87-'88........80@ 4200........106@ 2600.....9.0:1

2.3L ...............HP..............TQ(LB-FT)......CR..
'83-'85........79@ 3800........124@ 2200.....9.0:1 Manual Trans
'83-'85........82@ 4200........126@ 2200.....9.0:1 Auto Trans
'86-'88........90@ 4000........134@ 2000.....9.0:1
'89-'90.......100@ 4600........133@ 2600.....9.2:1

Posted by 510ranger:
lets see...-looks in chiltons guide for 91-99 rangers / explorers / mountaineers-

2.3L.......HP................Torque

1991......100 @ 4600.....133 @ 2600
1992......100 @ 4600.....133 @ 2600
1993......100 @ 4600.....133 @ 2600
1994......100 @ 4600.....133 @ 2600
1995......100 @ 4600.....133 @ 2600
1996......112 @ 4800.....135 @ 2400
1997......112 @ 4800.....135 @ 2400
2.5L
1998......117 @ 4500.....149 @ 2500
1999......117 @ 4500.....149 @ 2500

so yes, it changed in 1996, they upped the CR from 9.2 to 9.4:1
In '96 they also changed to a redesigned head with lighter (smaller stem) valves, valve springs and retainers. And reduced the size of the combustion chamber.


Added by pacodiablo:

2000 - 2001 2.5L engines make 119 HP at 5000 RPM and 146 ft. lbs. TQ at 3000 RPM.

Thank You! Jspafford. For posting this information.
I hope I never need most of it, but a few things were really interesting at this moment and the pinouts might come in handy.

jspafford,
You have my thanks as well. That could have been recreated but you saved me quite a bit of work.

trunkmonkey,
The '95+ 2.3 and 2.5 Lima (Ranger engines) share the same block, so yes, the only difference is the crank, rods and pistons. They also share the same head/intake/exhaust. Though if your goal is more performance, in addition to more cubes, the factory rods are not a good choice.

"so yes, it changed in 1996, they upped the CR from 9.2 to 9.4:1"

so, is that just from the head being decked? how much is it decked to raise the compression that much?

It's a smaller combustion chamber in the newer head.

it's a small note, but I figured it might be worth mentioning...

'89 was a 3 wire O2 sensor, and '90 was a 4 wire O2 sensor, they have the same connector... some early '90's (like mine) are merely a '89 with a newer vin, so in ordering a '90 O2 I got a 4 wire, which made mine run like crap, but if you run that 4th wire to ground, it runs fine, go figure...
