CAN A 97 ENGINE FIT INTO A 96 ?

1997 Geo Tracker • 18,000 miles

I crashed the 97 geo tracker but the engine is still in running condition so now i'm trying to take the 97 engine out and put it in the 96 geo tracker. I'm spotting some differences but I need some help. What are the differences between the engines & is this possible?

What kind of differences have you spotted? Is it the same liters/cylinders?

The engine out of the 97 has a crank positioning sensor and the 96 does not.

Yeah they're the same liters/cylinders.

Maybe can do a complete engine harness/computer change too?

Does 96 have a distributor?

Alright, and the 96 does have a distribuitor.
