98 Cavalier Engine Swap

Asked by Feb 25, 2016 at 05:48 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I would like to know if a 2.2 ltr. out of a 2000 Cav. will work in a 1998 Cav. with a 2.2 also, BUT HOWEVER, the 2000 2.2 engine doesn't have the EGR port in the cylinder head like the 98 does???  I heard the computer may not interact right without the EGR in the 98??
