I know the 2.0 in the 2009 doesn't have a cover (at least the one I looked at didn't).

This sort of question is all over the Dodge Caliber forums. Sometime in 2008 they started phasing out the covers on any of the "World Engine" vehicles that had less than a 2.4L. No one knows why.

I do know that you can buy a 2.0L engine cover on the internet: http://performancedodge.stores.yahoo.net/docaenco.html

1x 2.0L Engine Cover - 4891715AB
4x Ball Mount Studs - 4891847AA

I haven't decided if I'm going to try and scavenge one or order one.

I could probably take a pic with the cover off when I get home from work. I imagine that it would fit both the 2.0 and 2.4.

I know Jeepster2 was thinking about getting rid of his. Maybe you could buy it cheaper off of him.

Does this cover serve any worthwhile purpose other than looks My 08 Compass didn't come with one and the dealer says that's how he got the vehicle on a trade. Closer inspection shows it don't even have the mounting studs in place. He said he could order me one but the price was way higher than the one cited here. Personally, I don't think it's a gotta have part. Seems to me with the shroud in place it would cause the heat to be held in instead of going up and away from the engine. In any case, mine don't even know it's hat is missing!

If you have the 2.0L engine I don't believe there is a cover. If you have the 2.4L there should be a cover but it's all just for looks. It does serve the purpose of holding all the oil that the techs spill during oil changes though.

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness
