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?
