Hey yall, just thought id ask on here in case there are any surprises waiting for me, customer has a 1994 or 1995 s10 2wd manual pickup, the engine was knocking hard he said, so he went and bought a used jasper engine (yes it has the jasper warranty ID tag on it still) supposedly only 40K on it but the spark plugs told a different story, anyway new plugs and wires. but he never asked what year the jasper was... it has the newer computer attached to it and the engine wiring harness from the donor truck, including sensors,and accesories/exhaust. i think that the jasper is from the 1996 or 1997 when they put in OBDII, because thats what it appears to be. but its NOT the vortec 2.2L that started in 1998 externally it appears almost identical with the exception of no AC compressor, and the belt, and 3 blade fan

The intake and precat exhaust are identical.

Can i install the donor engine and computer/harness and plug it up to the body harness? preliminary inspection shows that the connector seems identical except for 2 or 3 more wires used.

or would i need to keep the older harness and computer and wire it up to the donor engine? the sensors all seem to have the same connectors for the ones i looked at.

Any tips to get the engine out? i read on a few forums its hard to get to the top tranny bolts and maybe have to remove the engine mounts from the body to clear?

I use several long extensions and u joint to reach the top transmission bolts.

I'll have to read up on the 2.2L. I don't know nothing about them. I have never worked on one either.
