Asked by caribou Jul 03, 2013 at 01:57 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Impala LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Impala has almost 200K miles and the transmission is going bad. Found a replacement in salvage on a car with only 7500 miles. Besides taking the trany, I am now considering swapping out the engine too and making my car almost brand new.  The salvage engine is the flex fuel model.  Is there a problem putting it into my current vehicle? What do I have to watch out for?

Further detail - I have now found out the my engine is a LZ4, 3.5L V-6 and the flex fuel engine is an LZE. The transmissions are both the same (M15), so everyone agrees there should be no issue there, but I ma concerned about all of the sensors, connections and data that would be reported to the computer.
