Re: Cavalier motor: will it fit my truck?
well, i put a 2002 cavalier short block assy that i got from a pull-it-yurself wrecking yard for 150bux, worked ok in my 1996 s10, but keep in mind, NOTHING BUT THE MECHANICALS!... and the pistons in the 02 cavvy motor are nearly flattop, while the 96 pistons have nearly 1/4 inch dish, so i now have a knock problem i dont know how to fix, but THEY WILL SWAP, minus the head...
P.S. compare the sensors too, i had to change a couple, crankshaft(the 96 one wouldnt come out in one piece, i broke it) and one of the others was different on the plugin, 3 wire, not 2, so i bought new)
