Chevy Metro

Can you put a 93 Geo Metro 3 cyl engine into a 98 Chevy Metro since both cars have the same engine number and the same 6th digit in the VIN?

Switching '94 with '98I have a '94 and a '98 and tried to switch the engines but the '94 doesn't have a crankshaft position sensor. This should be the same with a '93 too. The engine definitely won't run without it.

The engines are the same, but the oil pump, oil pan, and the cam timing components are different. The oil pump is designed to hold the crank position sensor and is larger than the early oil pump, so you will have to replace the oil pump and pan. Along with the pump, you will also need to exchange upper and lower cam gears,crank trigger (the finned metal wheel that slides on behind the crankshaft gear), idler, timing belt, and timing belt cover.

Engine Identification. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is located on the left side rear of the engine block and is typically a 9 digit number stamped or laser-etched onto the engine at the assembly plant. - The 1st digit identifies the division. - The 2nd digit identifies the model year. - The 3rd digit identifies the assembly plant. - The 4th through 9th digits are the last 6 digits of the 17 digit VIN found on the body. According to my Chevy dealer, the engine number can be derived from the VIN as follows: - The 3rd digit of your VIN represents the division code. - The 10th digit of your VIN represents the model year. - The 11th digit of your VIN represents the plant code. - The 12th through 17th digits of your VIN represent the sequence number (the last 6 digits of the engine vin). Also according to the dealer, the only way to actually see the VIN on an engine is to actually remove. Apparently the clearances are so tight. This information about the engine VIN also applies to Chevy Tahoes.
