Q: I need to know what motors are interchangeable with a 3.0

asked by on

Changing motor need to know what other motors will fit

My car has 200000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

2.4l 4 cylinder and 3.0 is the only two engines offered for this vehicle. If you change the engine to another motor then you would not be able to hook up the wire harness and computer. They are not compatible. You should find the same year engine with the same transmission or you will have major refit issues that will be a major headache and may not ever work.
