The 2.2L engine is fairly universal. You may need to use the original crankshaft position sensor, however. The 96 had a different connector than the 97 engines had. You should not have too much trouble swapping out this engine. Chevrolet is really good about not changing too many items for each year.

SOURCE: transmission interchange

The tail shaft on a two wheel drive transmission is too long to use in a four wheel drive truck, and to change the tail shaft you have to take the transmission apart. Otherwise you'd be okay.

SOURCE: What years of 4.3 motors wil interchange with the

1996 too 2001 the Lf6 motor

SOURCE: I have a 1996 blazer 4.3 v-6 that has a bad motor.

Any GM vehicle (truck/van/SUV) from 1996 to 2002 will interchange. There were two versions, the LF5 and LF6.

L35 and LF6 SCPI
Major design changes to the 4.3L V6 for the 1996 model year. Like other small block Chevrolet V8s, the 4.3L engine received redesigned heads which had improved airflow and combustion efficiency. These heads are referred to as Vortec heads. Furthermore the 4.3L was upgraded to receive sequential port fuel injection. The fuel system uses six centrally mounted injectors firing into six nylon hoses with poppet valves leading to each intake port. This system was call SCPI (Sequential Central Port Injection). This 4.3L used a two piece manifold, with the upper half manufactured from a composite plastic and the lower half manufactured from cast aluminum.
The engine block was revised with structural reinforcing ribs up front eliminating the two freeze plugs (on the front and back) along with an alloy oil pan (for the S10, Blazer, and Jimmy).
This engine came in two versions, the LF6 rated at 175 hp (130 kW) - 180 hp (130 kW), and the L35 rated at 180 - 200 hp (150 kW). Only the S-series pick-ups used the LF6, while the fullsize trucks, vans and Blazer and Jimmy used the L35 version. The L35 was optional on the S-Series trucks.
Year Horsepower Torque Fuel System Compression Ratio RPO Applications 1996 170 hp (130 kW) @ 4400 rpm 235 lb·ft (319 N·m) @ 2800 RPM SCPI 9.2:1 LF6 5 1997-2002 175 hp (130 kW) @ 4400 rpm 240 lb·ft (325 N·m) @ 2800 RPM SCPI 9.2:1 LF6 5 1996-2002 180 hp (130 kW) @ 4400 rpm 240 lb·ft (325 N·m) @ 2800 RPM SCPI 9.2:1 LF6 6 1996-2002 180 hp (130 kW) @ 4400 rpm 245 lb·ft (332 N·m) @ 2800 RPM SCPI 9.2:1 L35 5 1996-2002 190 hp (140 kW) @ 4400 rpm 250 lb·ft (339 N·m) @ 2800 RPM SCPI 9.2:1 L35 3,4,6 1996-2002 200 hp (150 kW) @ 4400 rpm 250 lb·ft (339 N·m) @ 2800 RPM SCPI 9.2:1 L35 2 1996-1998 200 hp (150 kW) @ 4400 rpm 255 lb·ft (346 N·m) @ 2800 RPM SCPI 9.2:1 L35 1 1999-2002 200 hp (150 kW) @ 4600 rpm 260 lb·ft (353 N·m) @ 2800 RPM SCPI 9.2:1 L35 7

Will the 3100 engine from a 2001 Lumina interchange with a 1997 Lumina easily.

If both motors are 3.1 then an interchange will work fairly easily. Not much changed between these years.

Is there an interchangeable motor for my 02 jeep liberty 3.7L motor?

it all depends on the 3.7 l motor you are looking at
if the replacement motors are of the same family group ( for example --motor 4ghy as found on the firewall or other site specification plate then it is very possible that that motor will fit in
what you have to be aware of is the bell housing mounting bolt pattern as it may be different to the transmission

over come that by motor and transmission transplant
remember that manufacturers use the same engine in a variety of vehicles and model names so for example dodge could use a 3.7 l engine in a ram , Dakota , model a, b, c, d, or what ever including a bob sled or snow blower
an engine is just a power plant used to drive a piece of equipment and if it fits in a number of years and models they will use it to save money

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.

Need to replace motor and transmission in a 97 Pontiac Grand AM G

Changing from a 1992 to a 1997 < WILL NOT Be EASY , As you must HAVE the ENTIRE ENGINE WIRING HARNESS , And ALSO the ECM for the older Set up. In the "5" YEARS there Were MANY CHANGES to the ENGINE Components= SENSORS and ACTUATERS .
its just a BETTER IDEA to Stay Whitin a year or 2 when Swaping ENGINES. SIZE OF SENSORS ETC. MAKES IT DIFICULT
