I have a 1995 geo prizm with a bad motor and i went to a junk yard to get another one and when i got home i realized they gave me a motor for a 1996. will the 1996 motor work with my 95 or should i go back and get the correct one?

This is from Wikipedia..."1993–1997 Geo Prizms are powered by the 4A-FE or optional 7A-FE engine." Is the new engine the same? How can you tell you have a one year newer?

The intake is different and the motor has "96" and a stock number marked on the block with paint. It also appears to have a crank sensor where the 95 motor does not.

Gary,you can swap the intake,but i think your 95 gets it fireing from a cam sensor,not crank,check and see if the 96 has a cam sensor,if so you are ok,if it does not have cam sensor,it wont work.
