is the engine in my 98 ford explorer sport compatible to go in my 02 for explorer xlt?
Are they both the same size? ie 4.0 v6? If they're both 4.0 v6 then they should have same motor mount locations and transmission mount bolt pattern. However, the intake manifold might be different, the injection could be different, if you are swapping due to an internal engine failure like a rod bearing or something, you could swap the block only and retain the accessory pulleys and pumps and intake if they are different from the donor engine
