1995 3.8 mustang
I have a 8 month of 1995 3.8 automatic mustang engine went in it replaced it with a 3 month of 1996 3.8 mustang engine ,engine worked great with no problems but when I put it in my 1995 im not getting any spark to any of my plugs and I have a check engine light on in my dash it just cranks but will not start my 1995 has been sitting for a while before I put the 1996 engine in it do you think it could be a bad ground or something easy ?
Um, actually no. The 1995 model is OBD I, the 1996 model is OBD II. Completely different onboard computer systems. You'll have to transfer the PCM (computer), wiring, and probably the sensors, all of them, to get the '96 engine to run in a '95 car. Sorry! -Jim
what I just did a 1998 3.8 mustang swap in a 1994 3.8 mustang and all I had to change was my moter mounts ran great then I sold it and bought this one lol
Was it a complete engine or did you transfer parts from one engine to the other? It'll work that way. -Jim
just a compleat 1996 engine hauled it out and put It in every thing pluged in the same and every thing but just cranks wont start .my old 1994 I did the same procedure hauled a 1998 3.8 mustang engine out and put it directly in the 1994 I had to change my moter mounts tho hooked every thing up and took right off after a couple cranks worked good but my 1995 on the other hand lol I am officaly stumped I have no idea
thank u for ur reply t is hard to get a answer from other sites lol
I am stumped too. The 1996 models were the first year for OBD II. Earlier models were OBD I. Sorry I couldn't help but good luck and please let us know what it was when you get it fired up. Thanks, -Jim
yes I will thank u for ur time
found out wat it was it was the crank sensor wire it was broke off lol
I cant believe I did not see that
I have another question for ya tho I recently messed up my converter on one of my 1995 3.8 mustangs its all stock got it not too long ago so I went and ordered a recon fm 69 hi stall 12.7 dia stall speed 1900-2200-140k want to know if any one has one or a converter of the same stall speed as this if so I would like to no what I will be expecting any comments will be appreaciated thanks
Thanks for letting us know about the crank sensor wire. Glad it was something simple. You might want to start a new question thread about the converter. Good luck with it. -Jim
Hello I was gonna bye a 94 to put my 98 3.8 in it the 94 is a six cylinder too will i not have any problems the way you did you think too??
So my question is on my 1995 Mustang with 3.8 I either spun a bearing or bent a push rod. So I found a 1998 Mustang with 3.8 that has nothing wrong with the motor. I can get it at a fairly decent price. So if I get this engine out the 1998 Mustang and put it in my 1995 Mustang is it going to work or do I have to change some things on it. All the plugs on the wiring harness is the same.
