Will any 98 & up 2.2L fit a 98 S10.

I tried to use the search before I asked, but I could not find a solid answer. I have a 1998 S10 with a knocking motor. All the local salvage yards are saying that only another 98 2.2L from an S10 will work and they want $1400 for a used motor with almost 100k on it. I did find a running 2002 2.2L in a Cavalier with 70k and they want $700 for it. Can I use the 2.2L long block from the 02 Cav? What all would I need to do for it to work properly.

I am new here.
Thanks for your help,
John

This really needs to be a sticky (2.2 growing pains). http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f105/2...-pains-321784/ But, 98+ are the same, however, some had flex fuel. As for the cavy motor, didn't 2002 use the overhead cam? If it had the ecotec, then its OVC and is a different engine. But if it's OHV, like ours, then the block will work, but you have to knock out some plugs for the coolant. Someone should make a sticky that says what engines will swap into what with the years.

Edit: They switched to the Ecotecs sometime in 2002.

the block/head from any 98+ should work, along with cavalier/sunfire 98+ to whenever ecotec started (eco will not work, completely diff)

Just use all of your acc/brackets/etc off your engine, swap them all over to be sure everything goes back like it was. intake/exhaust manifolds as well. Its also a good idea to replace all the gaskets you can (esp rear main) while the engine is out, b/c its so easy vs when the engine is installed.

They are the same up to the 2002, except for flex fuel models. I got an 02 cavi motor in my 98 s10. was simple to change over parts.

Thank you for all the help. It is great that there are more options than what I was first told. Maybe I can find a used motor for a good price now that I have 5 years worth and several model vehicles to choose from.

Re: Will any 98 & up 2.2L fit a 98 S10.

i've got a 98 and 99- they're the same except for the egr. it might be an issue w/your truck. i put the 98 engine in my 99. i know the 99 doesn't run an egr, just a block off plate. i think the 98 and 99+ heads are different, as the 98 has the egr function. i never did check the heads side by side while they were out to verify. you might be able to get by using some kind of resistor to elimate the egr and not throw a code, as are available for the 5.0 mustangs. or, just bolt the egr to the new engine and not have it pull exhaust from the 4th cyliner. (i think the 99 head doesn't have a hole for exhaust recirc). if you can do that, then check dahmer powertrain on ebay. they're selling brand new 03' s10 motors shipped for about a grand. put it in and go. screw the cavi engine.
