Your Mazda uses a Duratec 3.0L DOHC engine. the 2001-04 Tributes where very similar and a relocation of the transmission shift location in '05-06. The Ford Escapes used the same engine. Make sure you reuse your wiring harness and sensors. Match up the new with the old. Some other Fords used the same engine, but can be slightly different configuration. But for the cost of the swap and time and trouble, as the '01 Tributes aren't worth much now or rusted out, is it really worth it to you?

I put an engine from an '01 Taurus 24V in my '03 Tribute. I had to exchange the damper, flex plate, front cover, fuel injection, plenum, oil pan, gaskets and engine mount (with considerable grinding). It saved me $350-$400 bucks. Just remember when changing the setup, on the front crankshaft is a timing sprocket. You have turn the engine over by hand clockwise where the key way is at 9 o'clock. Then change the make timing sensor (disk) to the 1 o'clock position (there are only 2 key ways on the disk so it will point at the sensor in the front cover at top dead.
