SOURCE: 96 ford ranger. swapped engines and now the check

I'm inclined to believe that it would be good, from a troubleshooting point of view, to have the PCM fromt he truck that the new motor came out of, to get hte EPROM.

What are the codes for the engine now that you swapped engines?
I would at least try to erase codes with a scanner, to see which codes come back.

SOURCE: Exhaust removal required to drop transmission on 92 Ford Ranger?

Yes you do. trust me you don't want to get that thing half way out and down and not be able to continue. Soak those rusted exhaust studs in a good penetrating oil over night. I bet they come right out. I would not recomend cutting the pipe.

I have an 84 mustang that came with a 4 cylinder. What would be required to go with either a 302 or a 351 V8? Will it take more than changing motor mounts?


Everything will need to change eas far as engine, transmission, and most likely rear end.A 302(5.0) swap would make more sense because they came in these cars and there will possible be some factory brackets and other things availiable. When you say 351 i am assuming you mean windser. This engine is in the same family as the 302 but thats about all they share. It has not been in a mustang since 72 or 73 and those were much different cars. If i wanted a 5.0 stang i would just buy me one. this will be a very expensive project and there will be many unforseen problems.

I have a 1990 f150,want to swap motor and trans out of a 1996 f150,will there be any thing that i need to change or will it be an easy swap.


should be an easy swap if you are using the same size engine. 302-351 then you will need to do some changes.

1989 ford ranger automatic transmission


Your truck has a A4LD transmission. The older ones had major problems. What i believe is happening with yours is the converter is locking up intermittently. 1st-4th are actual gears for 5th(overdrive) the converter locks. I had the same problem as well as did alot of people I spoke with. I solved it by getting a used A4LD out of a '92 ranger with a 3.0L motor (these transmissions had some upgrades to deal with a number of problems including the one you are talking about.) You will need to swap bell-housings (this requires the pump to be shimmed properly,I paid a shop $100 to install the pump ,with is attached to the back of the bell-housing) There are only 2 kinds of A4LD one for floor shift and 1 for column shift,make sure you get the right one.Good luck.

I want to change my 4.9 6 cyl to a 302 v8 1990 150 ford


A donor truck is a good idea, but the transmission, bell housing, cross members and transmission mounts will all be the same as long as you dont go from manual to auto or opposite. motor mounts will be different tho. i put a manual trans off of a 94 F-150 with a 300 6-cyl into my 91 bronco with a 351 V8 (5.8L) and used all the mounts and crossmembers off of the 94. only thing is the petal assm was different due to body changes. and the 5.8L also has a 11" clutch **** and the 5.0L and 4.9L both use a 10" disk. the bad thing is you will have a ton of stuff to change like the ECU, and engine harness and and other then the Ypipe and converters the exhaust will work. such a project is not for the faint of heart.

I have a 1990 Ford Ranger Extended Cab with a M5OD V6 manual Transmission. I really like to know if there is a V8 that will bolt right up with out changing up the motor mounts.


There are no V8s that will bolt right up to your existing drivetrain. The swap would require modification of motor mounts, heater fan box or firewall depending on your motor of choice, a larger capacity radiator, splicing into your existing wiring, a v8 transmission (ie C4 if automatic) and a v8 transfer case if 4x4, and a minimum of a 8.8" ford rear end (preferably a 9" ford rear end)/dana 44 front end to handle the power.

There are many books out there specifically detailing how to swap a v8 into a Ford Ranger. Refer to this site if you are really interested in undertaking this project: http://www.jamesduff.com/broncoII/v8conversion.html

1985 truck cuting out when excellerating.


Maybe this would be a good time to rebuild that carburator. New seals, springs, gaskets, maybe the high speed jets are clogged. What year and motor do you have? 302 - 351 - 300?
You should be able to pick up a rebuild kit fairly cheap these days.
