Yes as long as it is the same year and engine setup. Some years are interchangeable. You might also check on Ebay.

How do I get ABS and Bas light of my dash board?

The computer needs to be reset with a scanner from a auto tech. Do you know if any of the abs sensors were damaged or disturbed? If all OK there, just clear codes. You should be OK. Good Luck Fran M

2002 Saturn SL2 was working fine an hour previous to the 'lock out'. I went to run another errand and it wouldn't start. Battery good, all lights, etc coming on. Wouldn't turn over. Anti-theft feature...

Your owners manual will tell you that the anti-theft can be turned off, but doesn't tell you how (dealer only?). If it is turning over but wont start, (trying to hit and outside temp is below 32) check the coolant temp sensor. Saturns notorious for cracked sensor sending false info to computer thus flooding engine.

1996 chevy blazer 4wd break petal goes all the way to the floor breaks r good new master cylinder blead all braks 10 times any sugesstins? help!!!

I know there is ABS in that vehicle, you might still have air in the ABS unit, you will need to get a manual that shows you the correct procedure to bleed the brakes. Master installed u need to start the bleed on the bench, then move to the ABS unit then to the individual calipers and/or wheel cylinders if equipped. I think there is a certain way to do it to avoid incorrect bleeding.

But i have also seen bad master cylinders brand new in the box.

Good Luck.

1990 ford tempo starts but will die after about 10 minutes. the power from the battery is drained and we just bought a brand new battery for it.

Try to start again, then when the engine is start, remove the negative or positive battery cable, and if the engine die, the alternator is failed., and if not dying, alternator still good. But for me the way you said, I'm 100% your alternator is died. Need to replace a new one. And if you know how to solder, just remove and replace the brusses( carbon) by soldering. ok

Bad fuel pump

Hi there, Please you need to remove it carefully and avoid damage to the fuel tank. Ensure that the replacement is brand new or a suitable refurbished one. Preferrably see the Chevrolet dealer.

2003 Pontiac Grand AM suddenly won't start and security light is flashing on the dash board. All systems are OK such as Battery new, fuel ok and ignition starting system ok. Looks like some anti-theft...

Check to see if you have a computer chip on your key. Chances are that the computer chip or the reader in the ignition keyhole is not reading it properly. If you leave the key on, engine off, for 15-20min. that security will reset and the light will go off. Turn key off and now try to start engine.

06 A4 2.0t and the engine sounds like a diesel

It may be a lifter tick, HOPEFULLY not a rod knock. However you would not need a brand new engine if either of those were the case. If you find someone that can rebuild the engine, that may or may not be cheaper depending on the dealer and parts that need to be replaced. It could also be the timing belt. The shop told you to wait for a check engine light because they dont know what's wrong with it, without plugging it into their computer. But you should NOT ignore it. Hope this helps.
