Swapping engine and transmission

Asked by Aug 15, 2017 at 12:03 AM about the 2002 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can you put the 5.0 engine
from a 99 mercury into a
02 explorer

1 Answer


If you have a 5.0 in there now it will work p, especially if your taking it out of a Mountaineer, but you will have to do some transfering of componets to make it work with the 02's computer. However I don't think the trans will work, something about an electrical change in 2000.
