My 93 dodge dakota sport has the 318 magnum engine in it right now. I was thinking about replacing that engine with a 440 short block but i don't know there is enough room under the hood. What other size engines can be put into a 93 dodge dakota sport without any mods being done besides changing the motor mounts?

Think you are on spot with internal engine failure, most likely a connecting rod came through the oil pan, there should have been some knocking just prior to it happening, though stranger things have happened. You are at a minimum going to need a rod and piston for that cylinder, although I would bet you will need more than one. Machining or replacing the crankshaft will be necessary, and these are just the effects of whatever caused the problem in the first place. . So in essance you will end up with a rebuild because you will not want to tear the engine all the way down and not rebuild it. My suggestion is to locate a good used engine and just replace it. That is what I would do if it were mine. But if you have the funds your best bet will be to at least put in a short block. No matter what you are in for in depth, major engine repair or replacement.
There is a sensor that located on the right side of trans. that goes into bellhousing up close to the engine, it runs off the flywheel i think its the crank sensor but i'am not sure, i had a simmler problem with one i was working on, replaced that and it ran.
I just put a 96 360 magnum in my 97 dodge 4x4 that had a 318 in it. Yes it does fit. I noticed that the flex plate on the 360 has balance weights on it and the 318 does not. Make sure the plate stays with the 360. The torque converter and exhaust manifolds bolted right up. The 96 360 engine had different connector plugs on the Map sensor, Crank Sensor and Tps. Get those off of your 318.
I did notice that with the 96 PCM for the 360 my fuel guage was off quite a bit. The 360 will run off of the 318 computer at least if your in a bind for Money.
