will a 2000 jeep Cherokee sport 4.0 fit my 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0?

Asked by Oct 25, 2015 at 10:16 AM about the 1999 Jeep Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

RE; engine swap : thank you so much for the info.  will my wiring and ,computer and transmission in my 1999 Cherokee Laredo still work??  Sorry for the lack of previous info. The 4.0 engine is coming from a 2000 Cherokee sport. Any idea why back brakes lock up? [ It was sitting for months] They seem to be fine sometimes--other times they stick.Thanks again! I'm a first time Jeep owner. VERY nice 1999 Cherokee with strong 4.0 but with engine tap [ in bottom I think].

The blocks are the same but you still may have to transfer some components from the old block, look at it very closely especially the location of sensors and how they connect. On the brakes, if it has been just sitting there could be dust and rust in the rear brakes also moisture in the fluid, brake fluid will take on moisture right out of the air and just sitting will amplify this problem.
