A 5.0 will have 8 coil towers on the coil pack the 4.0 will only have 6 coil towers or you could also count the spark plugs the 5.0 is a V8 and the 4.0 is a V6. HTH

And a 5.0 will usually say so right on the upper intake.

If memory serves my 96 was available with only two engines, the 5.0 v8 and the 4.0 v6. Unless someone did a change out in the past 20 years.

I have an AWD 1996 Ford Explorer and the AWD that year are V8s and all V8s that year are 5.0s.
