Question about 1989 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
I own a 98 chevy s10 blazer with a bad motor and trans. i just bought a 89 s10 blazer. the 98 has a 4.3 vortec and the 89 just has a 4.3. how hard would it be for me to take the motor out of the 89 and put into the 98 and just make it run?
It's not worth doing all that conversion, buy the time you spend the time and money to convert the 89 4.3 to work on the 98 blazer, it would be cheaper to install a 98 vortec rebuild. The 89 4.3 have a TBI fuel injection system and the ecm on the 98 will not work and the bad news is that the ecm on the 98 also controls the transmission shift points and the 89 will not, so even if you swap the ecm to have the 89 4.3 engine work. the transmission will not shift. Sorry for the bad news but it would be cheaper to replace the 98 engine with the years of 1996 to 2001. Good luck and hope this helps.
