These Motors were Labeled "Throw Away" for a Reason. They cannot be Bored out or BluePrinted. The Only way to Accomplish this is a New G16B Block. Some of the External Components on the Old one will Interchange Though.

Can pistons be changed without pulling engine

You don't give make or model , so i am flying blind. If the cylinder head and engine oil pan can be removed, with the motor in place. there is no reason why the pistons can't be removed, if work has to be done on the crank shaft the motor has to be removed.

I have a 2004 explorer 4.0 soch motor and it seized how can i break it free

Assuming you could get the motor to unlock, it would require a complete overhaul in order to run properly again because either the crankshaft bearings or the camshaft bearings (or both) and possible the pistons themselves have welded themselves to the engine internals. Most likely a new crank, cam, pistons as well as having the block bored and resurfaced.....get the drift?

I have a 91 caprice make knocking noise when I crank it

if auto , check the flex plate at the torque converter for cracks
check ring gear for burrs
possible big end bearing
possible piston or broken ring
test by removing a plug and cranking it replace the plug and go to the next plug
repeat the process until the knock stops with that plug removed

Starter motor/engine turnover

Check the alignment of the starter gear when it engages the flywheel. It may be going in too tight, or at an angle. It could be binding the starter.

I have a 2000 ford focus that smells like rotten eggs. It runs great. Where could the smell be coming from?

You have ignition cylinder misfires or a rich fuel
condition, that most likely ruined the exhaust converter
That is what you smell, a converter that should operate
900 to 1300 degrees
Yours got to 1600 & melted down
Now you need to solve ALL ENGINE ISSUES FIRST
then replace the converter & oxygen sensors

Change motor

wow your ambitious

motor and computer and o ya it beter be from a vechiale with the same options and then theres the re code by the dealer for the anti theft

what im getting at so suttly is take it to the local engine builder
explain what you want to get out of the car and how wild you want it to be
a good engine guy can tear down your block do a 5 angle valve job spin the cylinders 60 - 80 thousand over size the pistons turn the crank and set you up for a full allchol motor if you want
depending on what you want it can be cheeper to rebuild and upgrade then change the motor out
hell a top end will cots arround 800-1500 depending who assembles the motor when done
remember if it's a dodge it beter sound mean

Inherited 1973 standard vw bug

1973 should be a 1600 if someone didn't change it. Have you tried spraying carb cleaner into the carb to see if it will fire. If not, you might need to change the points and plugs
