Check to make sure. If your vehicle is a 6 cylinder 4.0. I can't remember off the top of my head when Ford changed to the V6 from the OHV engine to the 4.0 SOHC engine. For sure I know the 02 has a SOHC engine. I know the V6 4.0 OHV was available in 2000. If your vehicle has an OHV engine you will also have to take along the electronics from the donor 02 vehicle which has the SOHC engine.
