whats the difference between duratecs
I've been a member for awhile Now but this is my first post. I have a 2002 2.3 5speed the motor finally took a dump. I've been looking for a replacement and having a hard time locating one close. But I can find ones for 04+ close by, they look the same but the wrecking yard said there different, I'm just wondering what the differences are. If it's sensors and what not can I use one with out major modification. Excuse me if this is a newbie question but I searched with no results. I am mechanically inclined just I'm more of a jeep guy fords aren't my specialty lol.
