Are 98 and 99 chevy cavalier parts interchangeable?


Depends which engine is in your car. The cavalier had 5 diff engine models. You will need to check part numbers. Most bolt on and maintenance parts are most likely the same. Major parts most likely much different. Contact your local auto part store and reference the two parts in mind of changing.
Here's an engine list.
2.2 L LN2 OHV I4
2.2 L L61 DOHC I4
2.2 L L42 DOHC I4
2.3 L LD2 DOHC I4
2.4 L LD9 DOHC I4

Low compression in cyl #3


that means your rings, valves, or head gasket are going bad beyond the normal aging of all the cylinders. the number 3 was the first to go on my 91 DOHC too. the car is nearly 20, and that stuff happens with age and use. I would look around for a low mileage DOHC Saturn engine from a 94 SC2 or SL2. the engine is so old that to fix it you will have to rebuild it which will cost far more than the 500 dollars the whole car is worth. the same engine was in them from 92-94, possibly even a 95. make darn sure you find a DOHC engine and not the SOHC, they look almost the same but they are not interchangeable unless you change the transmission, the exhaust, all the wheels, and the speedometer.

96-98 are the same and 00-01 are the same, not interchangeable. i would just buy a used low mileage 01 engine and put that in.

I want to know if a 1996 and a 1998 saturn is interchangable body and motor wise


most all body and interior parts will interchange 96-99. engine however is different, you can put a SOHC engine into another car made for SOHC. you cannot put a DOHC engine into a saturn made for the SOHC engine or vice versa. the transmissions have different gear ratios. and the engines changed between 98 and 99 so you may have some problems swapping between those years.

I have a 95 sl2 that is leaking oil out the front crank seal and is registering no oil pressure


I think you should call around to local scrap yards and look on your local craiglist for a DOHC saturn engine with much lower mileage. Perhaps even a used engine vendor on ebay could be local to you. In any event I think before you undertake a major engine repair on a 15 year old engine it might make sense to put another engine in there. I do not know if a 95 DOHC is the same as a 99 DOHC but no doubt there are a few years which are interchangeable.

Changing engines


I assume you mean the DOHC off of an sc2.......and yes it is but at the same time you will have to get a 97 DOHC SC2 engine computer. Best bet is a used parts dealer and or junkyard. However if you do not mean an entire engine swap and just want specific parts then no.
