Default Need a motor for my..........................

For more than 8 months I have been trying to locate a low mileage replacement 1.6L engine for my 1997 Sidekick (JS) 4dr. Is there anyone on this forum able to assist me?

Yep.... I had an established auto garage try salvage yards but have been unsuccessful so far. What I need to know is this...........can a 1.6L EFI motor from a 1997 Tracker be swapped without any problems?

Tracker and sidekick are same. Instead of a bone moto, I would scour the web for remanufactured, warrantied engines; there are a few good places that will get you a good rebuilt on a crate to your door for under 1500. I dont recall the URL ... I'll post if it comes to me.
