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.
