I have a 2002 Pontiac Bonneville 3.8 LIV6.. Will a 3800 pontiac motor work for me?? Does it need to be same year as my car??


The motor will fit physically . The Best question is will the computer / PCM recognize and plug in to all connection points . This is why same year is important . Verify at a Auto Parts counter that 3800 series is in same time eg ; 1999 - 2003 all engine parts are same . This will tell you engine swap / versus computer will be OK. If you have PCM from 3800 motor then install it too . pcm talking to pcm is very important ..good luck .

What is the firing order for the spark plugs in a 96 pontiac bonneville i think i have them mixed up because my car wont start


If 3800 engine the timing is 1-6-5-4-3-2
If 2.8L or 3.1L or 3.4L timing is 1-2-3-4-5-6

Coil packs on 3800 are (1 / 4, 5 / 2, 3 / 6)
Coil packs on 2.8L or 3.1L are (1 / 4, 6 / 3, 2 / 5) 1995 earlier across the front from right to left.
Coil packs on 3.4L are (5 / 2, 3 / 6, 4 / 1) 1996 across the back from right to left.

1999 Pontiac Bonneville 3800 engine. How do I replace the water thermostat?


Follow the top radiator hose down. It will connect to the engine. At the point that it connects to the engine is where the thermostat is located. This thermostat cover will have two bolts. Some of the 3800 engines have a temp sensor in the housing. You will not have to mess with the sensor. The housing will have 2 bolts that hold it on. Remove the two bolts and the housing will lift off. And the thermostat will be under the housing. Replace the thermostat. And reinstall the housing.

I have a 1996 firebird with a rwd 3800 and i wanted to know if a buick or olds fwd 3800 motor will fit?


The engine will fit but the accessory's. Just make sure you have the same engine which is the L36. if you can get a L26 which would be the years 2005 to 2008 from a Buick LaCrosse, that would be a better investment since it has the aluminum upper intake and stronger connecting rods which is the only physical changes to the engine. The compression ratio is still the same at 9.4:1 but with the stronger rods, you can put a simple 6 pounds of boost out of a turbo and get another 90 HP with an inter cooler, looking at 285 HP with a 330 pounds of torque running on 91 octane. God luck and hope this helps, here is link http://cartuning.ca/about/

Bad 3800


Yes you just have to swap all the brackets,and poss oil pan and oil pump,and poss intake,which i would do before installing motor due to the fact they are known to leak oil into the coolant.(the ihtake gaskets).
