So I’m new to this and not a mechanic by any means but I have a 2012 Malibu 8th vin digit 0 and rpo codes LE5 and MH8 but the motor blew and I have found a wrecked Malibu not sure of the year but same body style and has a good running motor the 8th vin digit is B with rpo codes LE5 and MN5 so my question is will the 2.4l motor from the wrecked Malibu work in my 2012 Malibu with my 6 speed transmission and hook up without any problems as far as computer wise or tuning and any tips or answers is greatly appreciated thanks

The LE5 engine "should" be compatible, but I'm pretty sure it needs to be programmed even if you found another 2012 with the 2.4L/6-speed auto combo.

You should enter the vin online and it will tell you the model year, but if it's a 4-speed, it's gotta be a 2008-2010 model.
