Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central. Please make sure to let me know exactly what is needed from me so I can provide EXCELLENT 5 STAR service. Can you explain this better "They were made at the new me plant in Mexico and Canada my question is will I senior Matrix engine be an easy swap with no issues since it came from the same factory production line "I believe are you asking is an engine change on this model hard. If thats correct then the answer is yes, it is not easy due to it being a FWD. I have the engine replacement directions if that would help. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------On your screen at the top you should see a rating 1-5 stars and a green submit button. Please make sure to select one and press submit. I am not compensated by the website unless a customer rates. Rating only pays me from the deposit you have already made, it does not charge you more, nor close the post. Also all follow ups are free and welcome.Thanks Chris
