What years engine swaps?

Can I swap a 97 engine into a 98 ? My concerns are sensor and motor mount differences. Don't see any topside differences.

A local salvage yard should have the interchange book to tell you for sure.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: transfer case swap out?

What you will need.
Ideally when one obtains the LT230, they will want to also make sure to retain the LT-230 shifter linkage and parking brake drum, cable and the frame mounts as well. Some also chose to obtain the center console pieces from a 1988 Range Rover Classic, which used the LT-230 transfer case, and had provisions for a light which would illuminate when the center differential lock is engaged.

It will fit but your going to have to do a lot of engine management retrofit to have your engine run right unless you have the ECM for the engine also. Good luck and hope this helps.

Can I engine swap my 2004 Infiniti g35 motor with a 2006 Mazda3

I would expect such a swap to be extremely difficult, these engines are quite different, have different mounts, different clutch-plates/transmission connections, different plumbing, and different "brain" requirements. While it might be possible, it would likely be far less expensive to fix whatever is wrong than try such a graft.

Will a 2002 Pontiac 3100 interchange with a 2000 Buick 3800?

Not really.
The 3100 is a Chevy 2.8 and the 3800 is a Buick engine.
Most everything is different including exhaust manifolds, engine brackets, and wiring.

Can you swap a 4.2 ford engine with a 3.8

Engine swaps in modern cars are much more difficult than it may at first seem. You have to deal with the physical aspects of the swap, such as motor mountings, transmission mating, and exhaust system modifications. Then you have to deal with the wiring harness issues, as there will be differences in the locations of sensors and such. Lastly, the PCM (ECM) ion the vehicle must be modified or changed because it is programmed for the original engine and the sensor inputs from the new one will be different. It is usually best to swap the engine with one of the same size from the same year to avoid extensive swapping/mods.

Is there a v4 engine that will fit a chevy cavalier z24?

GM doesn't make a v-4, I don't think anyone does. Cavaliers did have a straight 4 engine, a 2.2 liter engine if car is a '90 or later year car. It's a very good engine, but if you swap them, there are many issues to consider, like will your transaxle bolt up to it, the engine wiring harness and the PCM will likely need swapping. Any number of little things have to be considered, and only someone familiar with engine swaps should attempt it. Oh yes, don't forget the exhaust system-that will need some modifying,'s a real can of worms you are asking about- do-able, but will take time, money, and a lot of patience.

Can I swap a jeep cherokee motor for a jeep grand cherokee motor? they are not the same year

The base engine should be the same in both. What you need to look at is to make sure that the sensors are in the same places and that the sensor plug connections match (some use different pins and different shape plug connectors). The only other item that may not be usable is the exhaust manifold.
Your best source of swap information is your local's their business and they have interchange books that tell them exactly what fits into what. To do that though you need to know what year engines you have.

I have a 96 chassis and i want 2 no if a 98 engine

The first thing to do is call or better yet stop by, an auto junk yard and ask if there are any major differences that would rule out this swap. They have
parts interchange charts, that can help you in this swap. (they don't sell these charts but they can answer ? you may have) Use as many sensors as
you can from the bad eng. Avoid cutting any wires,
use the old flywheel, for torque conv.+sensor reasons. If the a/c comp. looks different use the old
one. The block and head should have all the same
holes in them for mounting brackets and such.
Hope this helps. Good luck

Need to change engines

If you have a 22r carbed then all 22r carbed engines from 1981-1995 will interchange. You may need to use sensor out of your old engine however. The 20r,22r,22re,22ret all have the same mounts and tranny bolt patterns. how ever there are lot of differences. you can swap from a 22r to a 22re but you must also swap the entire vehical wiring harness to do it right. if you have a 3.0L i would keep the same engine. some people have swap to the tacoma 3.6L but that is a expensive swap not exsactly bolt on so to say. If you have a 22re then stay with the 1986-1987 22re because the newer 22re use different computers, electronics ,sensors and more.. Same story with the 22ret. I hoped this helped.
