There will be issues. The 3.5 for 2000, 2001, and 2002 are interchangeable, but not the 1999. You could also use 3.5 out of and 2001 or 2002 Aurora. This information is from the Hollander interchange catalog (it's one of the sources that salvage yards use for compability).

Can I put a 2001 ford e150 4.6lt engine in a 1998 Ford F-150 with a 4.6lt engine?

If you are going to change the engine I would ONLY replace it with the identical 1998 engine that you remove from the vehicle. Otherwise you will run into many costly issues.

Assuming a 2001 engine will even bolt up to the transmission with no issues and can be seated on the correct engine mounts that are fitted correctly on the frame, you will have to change the on board computer(ECU) as well as change the wiring harness. If you don't the engine won't run and these are major issues. There are a bunch of other issues that need to be addressed also.

Unless you want to throw lots of time and money at it, and I am guessing you are looking for a very cheap, simple, uncomplicated engine change over here, don't even consider trying to work with that 2001 engine.

By the way, just in the last few weeks I have seen owners come on here complaining that they cannot make their engine transplant work. In each case they have NOT used an identical model engine to replace the one they removed but something of the identical size from the same manufacturer that looked the same and fitted. In these examples, the complex electronics caught them out every time.

Where is the water pump located on a 2001 olds. Intrigue?

If the engine is sideways, it would be located on the left side of the engine by the belts. See if a hose is hooked up to it.

Error code P0102 MAF

sounds about right. you can try cleaning it with maf sensor cleaner first. if that doesnt work then replace it. do not touch the element with anything but the cleaner.

Where is the oil filter located in an olds intrigue 99

on a 3.5, on the bottom of the engine, looking up at the drain plug about 10" past the drain plug and slightly to the right there is a cover made of a plastic-like substance similar to Bakelite, it unscrews to gain access to the oil filter cartridge. You can buy a special filter adapter to use on a 3/8 drive rachet for removal of this plate. Here is a link for this tool, but if you look around you should be able to locate one for half the price:

How do I remove and install a new power steering pressure hose for a 2001 oldsmobile intrigue?

You will need at least 3 jackstands, a good floor jack, and BE CAREFUL.

Get a 16 mm flare nut wrench (Autozone has them). If you want you can bend it with a torch to look like this to make it easier to get to the fitting at the pump:

You will want to remove the fitting at the pump and at the rack. Here is what it looks like if the car and the engine/ transmission were not in the way:

The fitting at the rack may be a little tough to get to. It may help to remove the sway bar links and clamps (one 13mm bolt and nut, two 15mm bolts per side).

It may also help to remove the rear bolts that hold the engine/ transmission subframe. It can hang loose but a jackstand under it is always a good idea.

thats touchy if the engines are the same size yes but make sure you swap all the sensors over to the other motor. the GM dealership said that when i put a 2.8 from an 88 beretta into a 93 grand prix that had a 3.1 that it wouldnt work well i did it anyways and had to change a few mounting brackets and the sensors then i took it up to GM dealer to rub it in there face lol
