there not going to properly exchange as the 96 was a single overhead cam motor and the 99 was a dual overhead cam motor. You are going to have electrical connections that will not work
Engine Codes are different also
the replacement engine is a 97 not a 96.. please be more specific on what will no work.... cam sensor, crank sensor etc
Sorry Same engine code i misred
would you like me to opt out and let someone else in or try and look up the differences
yes to which
Camshaft sensors not the same
mass air flow sensors not thesame
injectors not the same
ecu not the same
crank sensors not the same
The money it would cost you to try and re-engineer to make the engine to fit you could buy another used motor.
can the sensors be switched from 99 engine to 97 engine... if I was to strip 97 engine down to a long block and switch all sensors injectors etc over will it work?
its not that easy
crank sensor may bolt into place
but cams no way
they dont read the same
injectors could be swaped with some mods but the engine isnt designed to run on them so its never going to fuel right
would be easier to swap the harness and engine all together into its new home
but you would half to build your own adapter harness to get it into the car
And hopefully you live in a state with no smog laws
cause it would be an instant fail when they opened the hood
just curious why not buy the correct motor???? your not doing an upgrade your going backwards
you say the 99 is a dual over head cam motor, but there are only 1 cam sprocket per head? I haven't pulled the valve cover off but how is that possible?
chains connect the two cams inside the head. cam sensor reads off second cam
just bought the car, needs engine and it came with a 97 engine
belts run exhaust cams chines from them to intake cams.
well they gave you a paper wait to be blunt
ok thanks for advice
