Yes you can but you will need the computer or the 3.0l and maybe the engine wire harness. Check the pins on computers to see if they are the same.

What year engines will interchange with a 1997 s10

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.

I have a 2002 Chevy impala with a blown motor is a 3.4l what other year impala can I get a motor from? What are the year ranges?

Without getting too specific, I assume you want to simply find a drop-in engine to replace this one. That being the case, stick with the same year and engine size. If you are willing to swap some parts around, more options avail themselves. The problem is that each year, while the block and head may stay the same, headers, intake, sensors and wiring harnesses can change dramatically. Putting a newer or older engine in the vehicle can be more trouble than it's worth in some cases. If this is something you are not very familiar with, you'd be better off leaving it to someone else. It may cost you more than having this engine repaired.

New engine fitted on my grande renault scenic 2004 but it has trouble starting and cuts out when going round corners

Are you low on fuel? Try running around with a mostly full tank.

Usually if a motor cuts out when going around a corner it could be low on fuel, or the pump pickup lines are shot...This also could be an electrical issue with a wire that has gotten into trouble when the engine was swapped in.

Hi, please have the car scanned at your local parts chain and send us the trouble codes. If I had to guess, I would say MAP sensor, but it will be much easier to help you with the trouble codes in hand.

Please see my tip at These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.
