What engines are interchangeable?
Two engines were offered that year. The v8 and the 4.0 V6.
I know that but what 4.6l engines out of other vehicles can i replace the 4.6l engine out of my 03 explorer with?
Check the 8th digit of your vin and the letter (engine) is probably listed as "W". This engine was used in the 03-04-and 05 models. Take note though I purchased a 2000 V6 explorer new which was suppose to come with the 4.0 V6 SOHC engine. A year of so later I was doing some minor work and noticed I had the old 4.0 pushrod engine in the vehicle. I immediately check with Ford and learned some leftover engines from model year 1999, which used both V6 engines, were installed in the 2000 model. I was instructed to check the engine code with the vin. Sure enough the code was for the older engine. Using an engine with the same engine code should work.

you can put any motor into any car. As for ease of bolt in you should keep to what was offered in the line up. Now lets say you want to keep the explorer but want better MPG. you 'could' take a 4 banger from a ranger (take the computer, and all the guts with it) and bolt it right into an Explorer, throw in the stick shift tranny. Grab the rear end for parts (if you have the solid axle in the explorer), seats from the ranger. Most of the guts from a ranger will interchange. 03-04 they began to make some changes to the Explorer shifting away from the Ranger platform. But many Ranger v-8s I have seen were taken from Explorers. But over the years I have seen crazy stuff done to retrofit things into cars. rwd 428 ford escort, 4 cyl full size caddy, 4x4 pinto and vega on a bronco frames. If you want to do these types of thing you better have the know how to do yourself or deep pockets to pay someone to do it for you. I really liked the low rider Explorer I saw with a 390 fe motor built for a drag racing but streetable application. He had to cut the firewall and redo some of the cabin floor and firewall.
