Asked by Jun 01, 2015 at 05:31 AM about the 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My engine blew in my 2000 jeep grand Cherokee limited 4.7 v8. I took it to a mechanic and he put a motor from a 2001 dodge Durango in it. Also a 4.7 v8, but my jeep will not start and the mechanic just went out of business and gave my car back. Can anyone tell me if the 2001 motor is even compatible with my 2000 jeep. some of the info I read says 99-00 only can be interchanged, others say 99-04. Thanks!

It should work, it is possible that he left something unplugged or missed a ground, there any number of things that it could be but I don't think the engine is one of them.

Check the timing. The firing order is 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. Fuel pressure should be 49 psi. You may want to take down your VIN # and cross check it with the dealer. I read that they introduced the 4.7 HO engine in 2001 for Jeep, but they put some of them on the 2000's as well. See if your old engine was a straight 4.7 or the 4.7 HO (High Output).
