It should be doable, if the engine size is compatible to the Transmission mount. You may need to change the Engine mounts location. As far as if it is a good idea or not only you can as the owner can decide that.

Engine rpm surges intermitently

Miles? Have you replaced ignition coils recently? Pretty good chance that they could be going bad. I would start by swapping all 8 coils and plugs and probably changing the valve cover gasket as well as those are known to go bad in the 2000-2003 LS

I need a engine for a 89 crown vic 5.0 i want to up the size to a 5.8 but dont know if the motor will fit in the engine bay plus i dont know if i need to change the transmission to a bigger one to fit

You would be much better off finding another 5.0L engine. It's a big can of worms to swap in a different engine, and not just for the reasons you mentioned. There is the engine wiring harness, the computer, many connections and placement fittings you would have to contend with. Check if the Crown Vic even had the 5.8L as an option. If so, it may be possible with minor modifications, but may be very time-consuming, whereas another 5.0L is just a straight swap-much easier. Whatever you decide, good luck.
By the way, I'm not sure your fluid-draining storage idea is very advisable. Many seals (like in the coolant system) could get dry and crack and cause a leak when filled and ran again. An old mechanic once told me never leave the coolant system dry-it leads to rust, scale and corrosion, and dried seals. He even kept his engines that were removed and.stored on the floor topped up with anti-freeze- said he never had a problem with corrosion build-up or dried seals.

The PCM is programed for the LS engine parameters and now that you have changed engines the signal from the new engine are out of parameters> Either see if you can get the PCM reprogrammed at a dealership or purchase a new PCM and program the chip with the police engine interceptor to the vehicle> you may also return to the place where you got the engine and purchase the PCM for the police vehicle.

Water pump failed. Car overheated. Engine lost power. Car smoke out from back of engine and from rear of car. I replaced water pump. Car still smokes when I drive it. Still has no power.

Notorious for intake leaks, the composite plastic intakes crack and leak coolant-as to the lack of power, you mght have overheated it and done some damage to the engine. There was a recall (information below) for the 4.6 for the intake-the overheating and lack of power means you should at least have compression checked and go from there-you may have bad head gaskets or worse. Do a compression test before you do anything else.

Ford Motor Company will extend the recall (01M02) on 4.6L V8 equipped vehicles with plastic intake manifolds. Some of the composite intake manifolds used on 4.6L SOHC engines may develop fatigue cracks at the coolant crossover duct. This condition could result in engine coolant leakage which, if not serviced, may cause engine overheating. Complete loss of coolant may result in engine damage or engine failure.
The updated recall now includes:
• Certain 1996 through 2001 Model Year Crown Victoria Police Interceptor
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Model Year Crown Victoria with Taxi
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Lincoln Town Car Limousine and Livery Prep Package
• Certain 1996-2001 Crown Victoria Taxis, Police cars and Lincoln Town Car Limousine and Livery cars.
• Certain 1996 through 1997 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from the beginning of production for the 1996 Model Year through January 28, 1997.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Crown Victoria Police Interceptor Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Crown Victoria Taxi Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.
• Certain 1998 through 2001 Lincoln Town Car Limousine Prep Package and Livery Vehicles with 4.6L SOHC engines built at the Wixom Assembly Plant from November 22, 1997 through December 15, 2000.

Usually when you clean your motor always cover up the distributer cap area where the wires are, or were they plug in engine could of gotten some water usually takes little bit to dry out and then your back to normal, other suggestion is to blow the engine with air hose good luck
