Q: 2004 Ford escape motor swap

asked by on January 02, 2018

I have a 2004 Ford Escape. The motor shot a rod entirely through it, and it is in need of a new motor. I spent every last dollar I had to buy a wrecked 2005 for escape with a working motor in order to swap it into my 2004. Apparently, between the model year 2004 and 2005, Ford made a lot of changes to the motor in the escape. I don't have the money to buy another motor, and I will hoping you would be able to tell me all of the things that would have to be changed in order to make the 2005 Ford escape motor work in a 2004 ford escape. Again, I purchased the entire wreck, and have every part that could be required for the exchange. Thank you very much for your help, guys.
