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.

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!:D

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.
