I acquired a 97 nissan pickup 4x4 4 cyl. The previous owner had put a 95 engine in it. He kept the 97 head and throttle body on the 95engine now theres a serious vacuum problem the truck will not idle at all, is the 97head compatible with the 95 block?

We only recommend direct fit parts, so I would say no.

Your mechanic would have to put the two side by side and compare them. They change things so often, it wouldn't surprise me that they are different.

Please understand, I am not allowed to recommend changes like this. We are only allowed to recommend direct fit parts.
