Unfortunately the mother of my kids blew her engine. I have found several replacement engines, my question is what other year Kia soul engines would work in her car? 2011 replacement is much cheaper.

2012 was a new 2.0 engine nothing like the earlier years. I don't know about the 1.6. I think that the 2.0 is still used today although the computer compatibility might be an issue Trans is different as well for the 2.0 6 speed vs. older 4 speed.

as mentioned above the 2.0L engine was a new series in 2012 and called the Nu series, this same series continued right through to the end of the 2019 model year, however in 2014 it was tweaked and became a GDI version, prior to that is was a MPI version.

the 2010-2011 2.0L engine was a Beta II series, totally different engine.
