Ford ranger 4cyl engine swap to Ford explorer swap

55

Asked by Sep 21, 2016 at 03:56 PM about the 2006 Ford Ranger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 4 cylinder 2006 Ranger that has a bad tranny,4r55 (salt water was
in it) I got about 5000 miles out of it and it is now slipping once it warms up.
The 4 cylinder 2.3 seems to run fine. I also have a very nice 4 door 2002
explorer 4x4 w/5r55 auto with a 4.0 that gave up the timing chains front
and back are out. I am looking to just have a vehicle to drive. NOT TOW.
Could I use the ranger engine in the Explorer? I think the trannys swap out
and the 4 cylinder is shorter than the 6 so in theory it should fit. I know NO
ONE ever puts a smaller motor in there but I have both on hand.
