a swap is possible, but its not a simple drop in deal. Requires a bunch of stuff to be swapped over too. Plus electrical work & tuning. Its even harder to do when starting with a 3.4L car.

Make sure you've done your routine maintenance before looking at something as in-depth as an engine swap.

1. Fuel filter
2. Spark plugs and wires - ACDelco
3. Air filter
4. Exhaust backpressure test - to rule out catalytic converter


If those check out, could be pressure solenoid in the transmission crapping out. I don't know how they would diagnose the whole transmission as a yes/no...

Try unplugging your MAF as well and see what happens. I've been through a couple and they have always presented as an undiagnosable misfire. Sometimes it's something simple...
