I'm pretty sure the block and heads are the same from a Taurus.
Just need everything else, exhaust manifolds, alt a/c etc.

My tranny is a mazda 5-speed... it went out on me last year. So I changed the engine on it too cause it had a big *** crack in the block. Had 180k on the engine and tranny... both were original.

Icon4 No hands-on knowledge, but.....

I've read that the head gaskets are different on the Taurus
engine, and have to be changed out to the ranger gaskets.
The water passages are different, and overheating will
occur if they're not changed.....

Not a big deal though, with the engine already out.
