I am desperately trying to find out the engine size of my vehicle. I have looked in the door jams and on the engine and don't see it anywhere. I've Googled to try and find this information but every website wants money in return

Stick shift (1.8) or Auto (2.0) ?

R/T & SRT4 (2.4)

There should be a sticker in the engine compartment (might be on the inside of the hood) with some info on it, including your engine's displacement. It'll either be 1.8L, 2.0L, or 2.4L.

Presumptions are that this OP relates to a Caliber with original engine as specified on the VIN.

There's also this TLA on the paper work from our knowledge base

[EBA] = 1.8L 4 Cylinder DOHC 16 Valve VVT Engine
[ECD] = 2.0L 4 Cylinder DOHC Diesel 16 Valve Engine
[ECE] = 2.0L 4 Cyl DOHC DPF Diesel Engine
[ECN] = 2.0L 4 Cylinder DOHC 16 Valve VVT Engine
[EC0] = All 2.0L 4 Cylinder Gas Engines
[ED3] = 2.4L 4 Cylinder DOHC 16 Valve Duel VVT Engine
[ED4] = 2.4L 4 Cylinder DOHC 16 Valve Turbo Engine
[ED0] = All 2.4L 4 Cylinder Gas Engines

Caliber VIN plate
The VIN code specific to the Caliber is
1 Manufacturing Country 1 = USA ( DCX book says Manufacturer 1 = DaimlerChrysler Corp)
2 Make B = Dodge
3 Type 3 = Passenger Car
4 Restraints H = Front and side air bags
5 Line B=FWD LHD E=AWD LHD 3=FWD RHD
6 Series C=6 Spd Man G=CVT N=5 Spd Man 6=SRT4
7 Body 8 = 4dr Hatchback
8 Engine A= 2.0 CRD B=2.0 VVT C= 1.8 VVT F=2.4 Turbo K=2.4 VVT T= 2.0 CRD w/DPF
9 Check digit (0-9 or X)
10 MODEL year 7=MY07 (01/06-12/06) 8=MY08 (01/07-06/08) 9=MY09 (07/08-?) A=MY10 (01/10- )
11 Plant D = Belvidere IL Assembly
12 to 17 Vehicle Build Sequence 6 digit number

and for the yoof who don't recognise a CD or a broadcast video
2 pedals 2.0
and the weird 3 pedal ones
with a 5 1.8
or even rarer 6 2.4
unless your uber cool in the know then it's 3 with a 6 and 2.0
