These engines are pretty bullet proof but if you want to replace engine it comes out from the top and is fairly easy to do. The one thing that may mess you up is there is a transmission bell housing bolt on the rear under the car that goes is backwards. Make sure you take this one out. As for the years, im not sure. If you call a salvage yard they have a database that will tell you. I know some engines of the same size and year but from different cars will interchange but you have to change the engine mounts and the timing cover so double check with the junk yard.
