Need a engine 1988 Buick Reatta

Recommended Posts

The 1988 - 1990 3800 V6 from any GM car will be the same basic engine.... there may be minor changes in location of sensors but if you have the '88 as a example (take photos before unhooking electrical and mechanical connections).

I know a Reatta owner that got a 1990 Riviera engine with 62K miles for $250......there are a lot of 3800 engines out there and there is not a big demand for used ones....so if you find something you like, bargain for it.

What you want is a code "C" 3800 (is in the VIN). To be correct you need to use an '88 intake as that was the only year that had "3800" cast on the top and not on the engine cover (also unique).
