Compatible engine for 98 chevy???
The intake manifold gasket in my 98 chevy malibu is bad, started leaking radiator fluid into engine. I need to replace my engine (3.1L) but need to now which one to get. I don't want that same engine size because that size is prone to problems with the intake gasket and dexcool. Can someone please tell me what engine is compatible if any?? Preferably one without the plastic piece in the 98 engine.
Do you really need to change the engine? Usually the gaskets can be changed with better ones and they last the life of the car. I believe the Grand Am people use FlePro or something like that. Check out www.GAOwnersClub.com for DIY instructions and advice.

i want to swap from a 98 Chevy Malibu 2.4L motor to anything beside the 2.4L. are there any motors that bolt up? if not... what is the newest best version to get that would bolt up? I don't care if it is a different make/ model... just looking for the cheapest solution for a new motor. I don't care if I need to buy a wrecked vehicle and take what I need. just looking for the cheapest way to get back on the road.. cheapest labor least work... any suggestions would be appreciated. no matter how crazy as long as it works.
