Can you swap engines from a 1985 front wheel drive V6 Chevy with a 1986 front wheel drive 4 cylinder Oldsmobile?

You should be able to, however, It'll be a huge job! If the Chevy and the Olds are the same chassis (for example, Corsica and Beretta are roughly the same car) You'll have to research that more. The biggest problems are transmission and computer. The two engines might not use the same transmission, so bolt points/sizes may be different. The two engines will likely use different computers and engine wiring, so you are looking at an entire re-wire job at the very least.

No. Chevy wrote the book on V8 performance. And Honda wrote the book of fuel efficient, dependable, 4 cylinder engines. Honda & Chevy both make excellent vehicles. Drive them both and choose the one you like the best.

On all engines, the fan(rear wheel drive) or belt drive(front wheel drive) is the front of the engine, looking at Engine from Drivers seat. For inline engines(straight block with all clyinders inline) the 1st cylinder is Number 1. On V-style engines,(V6, V8, etc) Left side front Cylinder will be Number 1. On a V6, the left side will contain Cylinders #1, 3, 5. Right side will contain Cylinders # 2, 4, 6.
