Sorry it won't. Probably wouldn't even start the engine. Usually when swapping computers, they have to be close in years. And almost always have to be reprogrammed. You do luck out once in a while.

Overheating problems for 1987 chevy K5 Blazer


Is it possible the replacement engine has a water pump that turns the opposite direction from the original ?
The thermostat has to be open to allow flow thru the radiator, have you tried running without a thermostat to check flow ?

1987 jeep cherokee 4.0 Starting Issue engine cranks over but won't start- will start and run if primed. Will restart ok but if left setting will not start again. Changed: Fuel Pump Fuel Pump...


Check your temp sensor. if it's out of range it could be sending incorrect readings to the computer. Also check the white ceramic block on the drivers side fender back near the brake cylinder. It is a resistor that affects pump pressure on start up.

1987 cadillac gas milage went from 15 miles around town to 8.5


this is what I would do. I have the 1993 model and get 22.5 to 23 miles per gallon.
I would change the plugs, change the plug wires, change the fuel filter, change the air filter.
if you have done this lately then one overlooked item would be the coolant thermostat.

when you first crank the car and the engine is not warmed up, it runs in a "closed loop" mode and it gets bad mileage. the computer doesnt care about mileage at that point, it just wants it to run good.
after the coolant gets up to temperature, there is a coolant temperature sensor ( should be located screwed into radiator somewhere) that alerts the computer it is up to operating temperature. the computer then goes into a "open loop" mode and the computer then constantly changes the air fuel mixture to make the best out of emissions ,milage, and power,...
so, it it is not getting up to temperature it could be the coolant thermostat is stuck open. if you cant remember when the last time its been replaced then you may want to go ahead and do it.
if that dont work, it could be the coolant temperature sensor itself.
When I was carpooling in my caddi I drove 7 miles down the road to catch my ride. I get 15 miles to the gallon. and spend more on gas then if I just drove by myself. when I drive to work my self (35 miles) I get 23 miles to the gallon with stop and go averaging speed of 50

1987 Jeeps starts right up but stalls after 2 seconds


Check the alternator and see what charging voltage is... anything over 14.3 volts running should be suspect. If voltage is too high, it is possible that the computer is shutting down the engine to protect itself. I don't see any connection between the fuel tank problem though, unless while doing pump, someone accidentally grounded a hot lead and didn't think any damage had been done. This makes some sense, because the battery alone will lonly put out from 12-13volts, which go lower without alternator, till it reaches a point where voltage is insufficient to operate the ignition system. This is a "shot in the dark" and will likely lower my "rating" but I don't care about that... Try checking this... at least it points you in some direction rather than flailing around!!!
good luck
