It depends on the replacement motor. If it's out of the same year and model it should be compatible with your original equipment. If it's not there could be a conclict. Like if you go from a 90 to an 87 e.g. You can always check the serial #s on both devices. If they are different I'd not take a chance. Also the CPU may not be compatible with your ignition system as well. Vehicles are designed as a package. some things like batteries are generic. But intergral components may be vehcile specific and non-transferable. It' s not like the old days when you could put a Chevy motor in an Oldsmobile. Happy Motoring!
