Can I swap a Nissan Maxima 99 engine with a Ford Taurus 96? (Or any other engine)

Asked by Jul 11, 2017 at 08:34 AM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Nissan Maxima 99 engine has gone
(severely blown cylinder head gasket at
least). I need to keep it running for another
few months but am thinking it would be
cheaper and potentially easier to change
the entire engine.

Can I swap any v6 engine? I have seen a
cheap Ford Taurus 96 which is why I have
specifically asked about it but would there
be limitations with any engines? How
about a v4?

Many thanks
