1997 s10 2.2 engine swap crank sensor different

We changed engines in our 1997 s10 pu. It is a base model 2.2. We put in an engine from a 1996 s10 it is 2.2 as well. Ours has a 2 wire plug on the crank sensor and the 96 model has a 3 wire plug on the crank sensor. how do we fix this problem?

Can you not just switch the sensor off of the 1997 onto the 1996 motor?

    They appear to be different where they screw into the engine. I called advance and they show that they are different.

    Hmmm, maybe this is why Hollander interchange lists the 1997 engine alone as not interchangeable. The only think I would think of is getting a wire diagram of both trucks and see if you can use the 3 wire sensor with a 2 wire harness.

Buick engine swap,94 3800 motor into 97 lesabre ,is it compatable?


Well there are several 3.8 liter engines 8th digit in the vin tells it all Vin3,C,K,L are all different is small settle ways the most is ignition electronics Vin 3 engines only use the inner sensor ring on crank pulley Vin 3, c,k,l use both sensor rings but they are different also Changing the pulley is not recommended due to balance issues but the sensor rings are bolted on with sheer bolts that can be removed. Intake manifold design is the second most important plastic 2 piece and metal one piece are not inter change able.

1995 GEO TRACKER ENGINE WITH CRANK SHAFT SENSOR HAS NO HOOK UP WITH MY OLD WIREING HARNESS


double posted. see other post.
you need to post what you had and and what you put in.
the 1995 has no crank sensor. sorry.
back one post and tell car getting fixed,
year and engine, and donor year and engines.

my wild guess, is new engine is 1995 but is it 8v or 16valves.
you must match the valves.!!~
the 8v is a one injector engine
the 16valve is 4 injectors ,and totally different ECU and wiring.

please id both engines.
is your car newer than the engine?
weve done this many times.

here is G16b for G16b drop. 1997. same for same
if had 95 G16b going to 97
id have swapped pans, oil pump and crank sensor.
onto new engine.

Doing a 1.6l sierra conversion with x-90 engine 1997


wow, no name of both cars. and both engines. "sierra" what's that>?
engine swaps are complex (done many)
my wild guess, is you are asking for the 1997 EFI system schematics for the 1997 EFI?
is this M/T or A/T , the A/T now has TCM , inside the PCM/ECU.
you cant find it because, its at alldata.com and didnt look there.
its there,and at mitchels, and all FSM sold at fleabay.
im putting X engine and EFI in to what car.?

only the 1996 is online and free.
the dizzy has 7 pins. and a base ground.
here is just the dizzy. on a 96 G16B engine. im sure 97 is same.
http://www.fixkick.com/ECU/1996/EFI1.jpg

the X90 is a very rare car and doc.s are the most lacking
and ive found the emmision changes, lag the Sidekick by 1/2 year.
tricky beast the x90 (EGR differ) That means the ECU is too.

tell exactly what you are doing. and what wires are unknown?
and get far better help..
i just looked at one major online source and it shows doing service
1997 , with 1989 engine parts..... this is common in the suz world.
bad docs.

I replaced a 1996 S10 engine with a 1998 2.2 engine, with knowledge of the crank position sensor difference. Is there any way I can make it work?


IF YOU HAVE SAME ENGINE YOU CAN TRY REPROGRAMING USING A TECH SCANNER.BUT IF YOU HAVE 2 DIFFERENT ENGINES CRANKSHAFT SENSOR WIRING DIFFERENT.YOU ARELOOKING AT A HEAD ACHE AND PCM PROBLEMS.ALL WAY BEST TO PUT BACK SAME ENGINE THAT CAME WITH TRUCK.BACK WHEN I WAS A KID IN THE 60S.YOU COULD SWAP OUT ENGINES LEFT AND RIGHT WITH NO PROBLEMS.ENGINE CRANK RIGHT UP NOW IN THE COMPUTER ERA CARS WITH PCM WILL MAKE IT DIFFICULT TO CHANGE ENGINES.PCM DONT KNOW THE ENGINE IT WONT CRANK.

Jeep engine swap 2000>1997 4.0


engine controls are likely different... Make sure that you retain all old stuff and know where it hooks up. It's easier to change any different sensors etc before you install into vehicle. make sure that accessories on front of engine are the same, and that exhaust exit on pipe is located in the same place. Exhaust manifolds like to crack where pipes are joined together. make sure they are OK before using manifold. Base engine assembly is identical so there shouldn't be any major problems. If new engine has over 150k on it, you may want to change timing chain before using it. (its not mandatory, but you would be surpriseed how many engines, I've seen with fairly worn out chains at that mileage)
Good Luck

Motor swap now it will not start


Unfortunately, there is no easy solution here. I had the same problem with my race car. I swapped a 96 2.2 into my 97 racecar and ended up having to also swap the engine wiring harness, computer, instrament cluster and pass module. The engine harness will bolt to the interior harness even though the wire colors are not the same. Just make sure you match the large yellow wire on the 96 harness to the large purple wire on the 97 harness. It sounds pretty complicated but it only took me maybe an hour to perform the swap. Now I'm back up and running and will be racing again this weekend.
