Will a 2002 Ford Explorer engine fit and work in a 1996 Explorer?

Asked by May 09, 2017 at 06:32 PM about the 1996 Ford Explorer 4 Dr Limited AWD SUV

Question type: General

I have a 1996 Ford Explorer it has a 4.0 v6 and the engine just took a crap. I personally don't think the engines worth fixing due to it having over 200,000 miles so I wanna replace it. I have a v6 with super low miles out of a 2002 Explorer I was wondering if it would work.

The engine in the 96 is a OHV engine. This engine was discontinued. The engine in the 2002 is a SOHC engine. They may bolt up but I suspect the pin-outs on the 96 PCM is not the same as the 2002. I would also suggest you check the specifications on both the 92 and 02 vehicles paying attention to the model transmission used. Also, the 2002 has thirty or more horsepower
