Motors that fit 1998 3 liter ford ranger

1 Answer


Ok, start with the 8th digit in the vin number. If it is a U,S, or 2, any 3.0 out of a ford motor company vehicle will work, just match the vin code with the replacement engine.(Taurus are easily found In salvage yards all over, and carry all of the same coded engines.) If you have the unfortunate luck to have a flex-fuel motor(vin code E), sorry, you must get another flex fuel motor to match the wiring and computer. OR! you can do what I like to do! Gut the engine compartment, little body and frame adjustments, and just stuff a 351w in it! =)
