2004 Chrysler Pacifica Blower won't work

Usally when a blower motor resistor goes bad the fan still runs on high. The resistor lowers the voltage going to the fan to make it run slower. The high setting usually goes straight thru. Resistors are usually easy to get to, under good on the firewall or under dash passenger side. Cost about $24 at parts store. Replace with new if that doesn't work return it.

Will a 1997 3.3 Nissan Pathfinder engine be good to swap out a 2004 3.5 Nissan Pathfinder engine ??

being that you have a complete donor car the swap would be easy enough, one thing to keep in mind is the fuel management system and ECM will be different between the two. you may want to research the swap before you dive into it. it most likely will be cheaper to find a low millage motor at a wrecking yard that the same displacement and generation.

Yes i was wondering can i swap out a 2003 ford mustang cobra motor and put it in a 1993 Lincoln Mark Vlll they both have the same engine 4.6L 32v 4cams just mustang cobra has a supercharger so i was...

can it be done? Yes. is it easy? No. While the basic design of the engine is the same, they are completely different. The cobra in 2003, had different heads, intake and rotating assembly. Also the 03 cobra is an ODBII vehicle while your 93 model is ODBI. i have seen several mark viii's that retained the stock engine, but bolted on the cobra intake. It requires some modifications but is relatively straight forward. hit up some of the mark viii forums, they pictures and in depth discussions on how the swaps are done.

What kind of engine can i swap with the 94 le 4 banger

Stick with the very same engine size and year if possible. You may be able to use a 1995 model engine but stick with an OBD1 engine and do not move up to a OBD2 engine. 1996 and up are all OBD2. This will be an easy swap.

Can i swap a 3.1 96 century, for a 3.1 96 grand prix?

Everything should go easy as a swap, the only thing your going to have to do is change the Oil and temperature sensors. Always good to have new sensors installed just to make life easy. The other thing to is to pay attention to the accessory unit's like the power steering pump and alternator, but i think there all about the same. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. be glad to help

Motor swap now it will not start

Unfortunately, there is no easy solution here. I had the same problem with my race car. I swapped a 96 2.2 into my 97 racecar and ended up having to also swap the engine wiring harness, computer, instrament cluster and pass module. The engine harness will bolt to the interior harness even though the wire colors are not the same. Just make sure you match the large yellow wire on the 96 harness to the large purple wire on the 97 harness. It sounds pretty complicated but it only took me maybe an hour to perform the swap. Now I'm back up and running and will be racing again this weekend.
