Find Chevy Celebrity engines at Used Auto Parts Locators. The Chevrolet Celebrity is a mid-size car produced by Chevrolet. The Celebrity was introduced in 1981 for the 1982 model year. The Celebrity was the best-selling car in the United States in 1986. Although sold for only one generation, it received a variety of facelifts during its nine year run. The coupe was discontinued after 1988, the sedan after 1989 and the wagon by early 1990, with the new Lumina line replacing it.

The Chevrolet Celebrity was based on the front wheel drive A-body platform shared with the Buick Century, Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera and the Pontiac 6000. GM had previously used the “Celebrity” name as a body style designation on pillared Oldsmobile sedans in the 1960s 

The base 2.5 L “Tech IV” I4 engine (Pontiac’s Iron Duke) was criticized for being underpowered, but a high-output fuel-injected V6 became optional in 1985. A new, optional Getrag-designed 5-speed manual transmission became available with both engines. However, the manual transmission option was dropped in 1986, and the 3-speed automatic became standard. The diesel engine departed for 1986. The Generation II engines, reworked for 1987, now had fuel injection standard and had a new distributorless ignition system. Balance shafts were added to the Tech IV engine for 1988. The coupe was dropped for the 1989 model year, replaced by the Lumina mid-size coupe. The 4-cylinder engine received a 12 hp (9 kW) gain late in the 1989 model year. While the Buick, Oldsmobile, and Pontiac A-bodies received regular styling updates, the Celebrity was not touched after 1987 because GM planned to replace it with the Chevrolet Lumina. Only the station wagon remained for the 1990 model year, with a new optional 3.1 L V6 engine and door-mounted front seat belts with the other A-body cars.

Switching to FWD allowed more interior space than the Celebrity’s predecessor, the Malibu, due to not needing a drive shaft tunnel on the floor (more so in wagon form, reverting to 8-passenger seating that had been missing from mid-size GM wagons since 1977), with front wheel drive traction and more responsive handling. These cars bettered the dismal recall record of their X-body parents significantly. There were driveability problems with the computerized engine control system in 1982 models, and deterioration of the upper engine mount (also called a dogbone) caused engine/transaxle vibration. Because tooling costs had not been monetized for the 1978-vintage A-body platform, GM could not discontinue it in 1982 and so the FWD A-body line had to run alongside the older RWD models for the first few years of production (the Malibu was discontinued in 1983, while the RWD A-body Buick lasted through 1985 and Oldsmobile models survived all the way to 1987).

Below are the Chevy Celebrity engines used:
