Re: jeep engine swap 2000>1997 4.0
Engine controls are likely different... Make sure that you retain all old stuff and know where it hooks up. It's easier to change any different sensors etc before you install into vehicle. make sure that accessories on front of engine are the same, and that exhaust exit on pipe is located in the same place. Exhaust manifolds like to crack where pipes are joined together. make sure they are OK before using manifold. Base engine assembly is identical so there shouldn't be any major problems. If new engine has over 150k on it, you may want to change timing chain before using it. (its not mandatory, but you would be surpriseed how many engines, I've seen with fairly worn out chains at that mileage) Good Luck

the first grand cherokee laredo was in 1992 . it was all jeep sports back then, the blocks are all the same .you will need to use some of the sensors from the old motor, the distributor and oil sending unit and temp sensor. will be no problem. if I can put a ford ranger motor in a mercury sable your swap is easier
Although the 4 cylinder is too underpowered to have air conditioning in my opinion, it still shouldn't overheat within 10 minutes unless something is wrong. If your Jeep doesn' not overheat when you are driving WITHOUT AC on then your compressor might have a problem and causing the engine to work too hard to turn it.
But if it overheats without the AC on, then the first thing you need to do is check the cooling fan and see if it operates! There has been a lot of problems with the cooling fan relay on this model. If that isn't it, then move to changing the thermostat and checking the water pump.
You probably could with a lot of work. The Cherokee Sport has the 4.0l engine and since it is a 95, it may or may not be an OBD2 computer system where as the 94 will not be. Plus you are going to a much bigger engine. The computers will have to be changed and I am sure you will have to do a lot of fabrication with the motor and transmission mounts among other things. It can be done, but it would be a ton of work!!!!
sorry cant help here on this because although we have a lot of these vehicles here in spain and they appear to be very popular ,cant say i have ever had to change an auto box on one.Engine sensors yes but gearbox?? practicaly bullet proof these engines and transmissions
Check with any local junkyard or dealer ... they know better than anyone what fits what.... Pretty likely it does. It would be wise to check bearings in one you want to buy (before you pay) also, check the top 1/4" of the cylinder bores. There should be very little or no ridge at the top (big ridge = a lot of cylinder wear) If you buy it, check the timing chain for excessive wear and also check "freeze plugs" and replace before installing it. (far easier out of car than in)
