Engine block interchange

I have thrown the rod of my Saturn i4 DOHC engine, and I want to find a new head and block so I can save the car. I wonder what engine block is interchangeable with 1999 Saturn SC2 1.9L DOHC engine? ( does SOHC engine block interchangeable with DOHC and any other years' engine block interchangeable with 99?) Thank you very much.

Most salvage yards should have the interchange info you need.

SOURCE: 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.

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

Will a 1998 saturn engine parts fit an 1995 saturn engine

I doubt it. Too much generational difference. Remember in 1996, the federally mandated OBD-II compliance standards went into effect-the new emissions requirements with On Board Diagnostics 2. (Before that, emissions and computerized controls were called OBD-I).
Don't give up yet, though. Very possible the engine block and heads are interchangeable. Check with a salvager's interchange manual about that. If you are good on that, you could swap the other engine parts from the old engine (like, possibly the intake manifold) onto the '98 engine. Or, if you are just asking if some parts from the '98 engine will fit the '95, then, again, check an interchange manual.

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.

Is a 1999 sl2 engine *(block only) compatiable with any other year engine block?

If your thinking of interchanging the head or short block then you can, depending on the cylinders, because the saturn sl2 2000 and 1999 were one of the few models ever to make a 1.9 liter DOHC. if you have a 1.8 DOHC then you should be fine with a 2001 or 2002

Cna you use a transmission from an s model car to put in a sl edition

Probably possible. The tranny in my '95 Saturn SL2 failed at 30k and the engine blew at 57k while starting. Hope you have better luck; no more GM for me.
