Default 2005 Engine swap with a 2001 PT engine

The engine in my 2005 PT Cruiser is shot. The crank seal kept leaking and upon opening up the engine the crank is worn and sloppy.

I have found a low mileage engine in a 2001 PT Cruiser. Is it possible to exchange a 2001 PT Cruiser engine into a 2005 Pt Cruiser? Any major difficulites? Are they compatible.

Thanks

You can't use a 01 or 02 engine. Different crank timing and location. Has to be 03 and up. Non turbo to non turbo. Or. Vice versa.
