What engines can i put in my 98 ford escort? the dealers say because my 8th digit of my vin is p that i need a sohc. What do I do?
My engine blew up on my 1998 ford escort right after i put alot of money on maintenance.
Im trying to find a new engine and I found plenty of good deals on 2.0l dohc engines but
when i check compatability since my 8th digit of the vin is P then the person i spoke with
said i need a SOHC low emmisions engine. I live in California. I dont know if that matters.
As you live in Cali your stuck with staying stock.
Try a wrecking yard, there are plenty of those vehicles out there so you should be able to find one used.
Try car part.com. It's a website that you put in your vehicle information and the part(s) you're looking for. Then a list of junk yards, nation wide, who have it will pop up. This will include prices, brief description, and contact information. HTH. -Jim
