The ECM will not be able to control the new motor so that will have to be replaced. Most likely any gauges connected to the engine condition will not work either. You could go to another V6 but not to a V8. The vehicle computer would not know how to control the timing. It is likely the transmission will not be interchangeable with the V8 as well.

My 1998 dodge durango slt wont drive past 40 miles an hour

Hello Jeff Winner,

Over the last 20 years ... cars have has a LIMITED OPERATION FEATURE added... When the engine READS something that is not IMMEDIATELY catastrophic... it will allow you to
LIMP home... rather than a complete shut down.

Limp mode:
You SHOULD also have a CHECK ENGINE light... (?)

My best advice is to limp on down to your near-by FREE code reading shop... and have a READER tell you what CODES are registered...

A blocked exhaust system will also seriously SLOW your progress
((soon to stop all-together)).

Hope this helps

Check you exhaust prices BEFORE you go...!!,1998,durango,5.9l+v8,1314473,exhaust 1998 DODGE DURANGO 5 9L V8 Catalytic Converter RockAuto

Wat kind of v8 is suitable for a 1997 3.8 v6 holden commodore excutive

your VT /VX came out with a V8 engine
you need the engines ECU and the V8 gearbox
manual diff ratios can be optional

1997 -2002 engines will bolt in

you could go up the next commy V8 model it has roller rockers
you can have a v6 or v8 supercharged if you like

once all bolted in you need a mutt 2 diagnostic reader to reset all the keys and modules and immobilizer for it to start and run

I fitted the timing belt but the warning light is still on

did the engine die before thj
which light?, there are 10 or more? lost the operators guide? its free.
did you check compression first. i would. it proves it was done right
and if interference engines I do a hand cranked leak down test
to avoid bent valves. YMMV, good luck there......

USA answer.: OBD2 systems.
first clear the DTCs
then run it. see if they return.
if do post them. DTC are errors.
no engine option stated, no series LC. either so cant say for sure.

200 series? and engines?
SO Your engines is the 4.7L and as such , you check
the belt timing 3 times then run a leak down test by hand
and roll the engine by hand first. after belt swap
with sparks out to be sure the pistons dont hit the valves.
if they do , stop.
never crank over in any interference engine blind.
the stater motor can bend valves.
if the engine ran bad, and you found the belt slipped.
the leak down test, would be next. for sure.

always ask how to service interference engines.
there are lots of precautions,.

What motor is interchangeable with 1999 cheverlot s10

what ever motor is in it . If you have a 4.3 w motor then thats is the one that you need to use . if you have a 4.3 x motor or 2.2 motor . Now if your asking if you can put a differnt year motor in you truck yes a lot of years fit your truck as long as you keep the same vin code on the motor (x or w . ect ) i am not sure what your vin code engine number is the 8th digit in the vin ,that tells you what engine is in the truck . now if you are changing from a 4 cylinder to a v6 you will need to change all the wiring harness and the computer system .The also make v8 converison kits too .but to do this kind of engine swap comes with a great price tag attached to it

If i change from a v6 to a v8 on my 93 mc do i have to swap out the computer?

No, they use the same computer. But the prom chips in the computer are different. It will run fine on the 4.3 chip but it will run better with the V8 chip. After you switch it, I would order a performance V8 chip for it.

Can i swap out a trans from a k 1500 v8 4x4 model truck, into a 1994 k 1500 V6 4x4 model truck that need a trans?

It should fit, do not know if gear ratios will be the same, but should be close enough to run.
