Fisrt check for Codes by using a GM code reader($20 from Walmart;comes with instrutions-plugs in next to fuse panel under the driver side dash; If no codes... You might start with checking: the Distibutor module and the rotor; on the rotor check for fit and to see if the contacts have been eroded; also have someone check the fuel pump pressure and check to see if fuel filter is clogged; your might also check the ignition timing;

It depends on which engine your trying to swap. The 2.2L OHV engine will work in a 99 from a 2002 because it was the same engine. But if it's a Z24 model the 2.2L DOHC engine will not fit a 99 because the 99 used the old 2.4L Quad 4 in the Z24 models and some LS sedan models.
