Default Engine Replacement


I need a new engine for my 2003 PT Cruiser. I was able to find an low mileage 2005 engine and was wondering if I can fit it and get it working in the 2003.

Thank you. Is there anything else I will need or will this be a clean switch. I called the dealer and they said there was a difference in the two engines but he didn't get into explaining it.
