Q: my son has spun the bearings in his 2006 Mercury Mariner, what engines are compatible for a swap

asked by on

looking to find out what engines are compatible to do a engine swap, as this particular engine has spun the crank bearings due to a lack of oil.

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Unless you want a real hard engine swap you should only use the same year engine. If you do not then you may have sensors and wire harness connection issues.
