Drove through puddle - Battery light came on, temperature gauge all the way up, cold air blowing out of vents

Sounds like it may have blown a hose and you lost all the coolant. IT could also be that the puddle you drove through caused the head gasket to blow. At any rate, this is not going to be cheap.

Will a 4.0 engine out of a 2002 explorer work in a 2005 explorer with a 4.0

The short answer is maybe.
The actual long block part of the engine is used in 2002 - 2005 models, but there are 3 or 4 versions.
If you are wanting to swap out a complete engine from one year to the other, I doubt it. Most of the parts will probably work, but not all.
One big factor is wiring harness hookups.
The problem with swapping engines today compared to 25 yrs ago is now each year has to beat the fuel economy and emissions of the year before. So each year is a little different.

2005 Mazda Tribute... Similar to a few unsolved issues. Burns excessive oil, ever since I got it. Every 1000km or so, 1/2 to 3/4 liter of oil. No leaks, emissions are okay. Also fuel economy is not...

Sounds like the Valve Guides are **** out oil is seeping down valve stems and burning in the cylinders. Some times STP oil treatment can slow the oil down because of its thickness. I have put about a cup of dexron2 transmission fluid in my oil to swell up the O-ring seal on the valve stem to stop this problem and a cup will not hurt anything. Like i have put STP in Automatic Transmissions to correct leaky valve body problem work like a charm.Can give you 3 to 5 more years of life to a transmission.

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)

possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

I have a Mazda 3 year 06', the engine light recently came on... I have the oil changed every 3k, since I bought the car 3 years ago. Recently, it has been making a shuttering noise coming from the engine....

Look's like you have kept up with your car, but if engine light came on you need to have engine diag. done to find out what's going on, it's on because engine computer pick up a bad signal from one of your sensor, have it check out.Good luck.

My Mazda 929 went through a water puddle and now it wont start

I agree with "emissionwiz". What probably happened was you hydrostatic-ally locked your engine. What happens is when you went through that puddle water got sucked into the intake and into the engine. Water being a liquid cannot be compressed and stalled the engine and most likely bent some internal components. If you can hear the starter click but the engine won't turn over you've got a 99% chance its a ruined engine. If you don't want to believe that try turning the engine over by hand (socket on crankshaft), you should be able to turn it, if not it's done for. Good luck and sorry about the misfortune but next time go very slow through puddles.

2002 crystler pt cruiser pulsing breaks

yes the rotors may only be 6 mo old, but it does not mean they didn't become warped in this little bit of time! try to think back if u had to slam on the brakes at some time to avoid some thing and hitting a big puddle of water and then hitting the brakes hard can warp them easily, i bet if u have them checked u will find they have become warped! ( could also be the quality of parts, it does happen) good luck to u,hope we helped.
