Any places online I can look to get the engine from?
Whats the difference in the 3.1 and 3.4 besides the obvious a lil bit bigger?
Thanks everyone for your help

The engine in a Malibu (Opel) will say it'* displacement on the UIM. Have her go read it off to you.


To find an engine I suggest car-part.com or letting your fingers do the walking.

Thought all Malibu'* had the 3.1?
If a 3.4 would fit maybe we should just put that motor in instead of the 3.1. Unless the 3.1 for some reason is a better motor.

That begs the next question...is this a Malibu or Impala?

The Malibus have either the 3100 or 2.4 DOHC.

Yes, This would be the Vin J 3100... There are enough of them around, should be able to find a low mileage motor at the wrecker
