Default 2007 Saturn Ion Motor Swap

I have a Saturn Ion sedan with a 2.2liter motor that went bad. I manged to take the head off and have it "gone through". To make sure there wasn't any issues with it. The bottom end of the motor was bad. Two out of the four pistons were stuck in the block leaving me to get rid of that. I have a motor from an '03 Saturn Vue that I am planning on using, but I do see that the crankshaft sensor can be an issue with an older block. From what I have heard the newer blocks 2007 and up have something in the crank that the sensor uses as a "pick-up". I guess what I am wondering, is that true, and second is there something I can use that is after market that I can install that looks at the harmonic balancer? Any news or help is most appreciated!

Thanks,
Steve D.

I donít think that there is anything that would read off the harmonic balancer and talk to the factory PCM... there are external crank trigger kits but they usually require a standalone engine management to run them... Iím guessing that finding an 07 2.2 is hard/expensive?

Ok. I found a different motor for my project 2007 Ion. Will a 2009 Chevy Cobalt 2.2 motor work ok in my Saturn Ion 3? I don't want to change anything in the motor except the timing chain and water pump.

Any help is always appreciated!
