Hello Jandcwerner.

I have done a few swaps in my lifetime but this one would be difficult.
Complete engine wiring harnesses, computers would need to be taken out of the T-bird and intertwined with the systems of the Mazda.
Then contending with adapting the engine and transmission to the truck. The engine will not bolt to the pickups transmission.

The 3.8 isn't a rocket motor either so it would not mean a lot of extra performance.

If I were you I would take a pass on this swap.
Just my opinion.

If you do opt to try it, have fun with it and take your time, do it right or it will be a constant problem.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Correct pressure for torque the head of mazda pickup 1998


Since you didn't say which engine you have, I've pulled torque specs for 3 different engines. Also, since I can't include a diagram showing the relative locations of the numbered head-bolt locations, it would be a good idea for you to purchase a vehicle specific repair guide that will show this info.


Take particular note about the TTY (Torque to Yield) bolts used on 2 of the 3 engines shown. It is said that new head bolts MUST BE USED when head is replaced or re-installed to obtain the proper torque.



B2500 4 Cylinder

Torque sequence: --------- ' 10 6 2 4 8 ' front ' ' ' 7 3 1 5 9 ' -----------Step 1: torque in sequence to 51 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque again in sequence to 51 Ft/Lbs Step 3: final tighten all bolts an additional 90 to 100 degrees recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.







B3000 3.0 6 Cylinder

Torque sequence ---------- ' 6 4 2 8 ' ' ' ' 5 1 3 7 ' ---------- Step 1: torque to 59 Ft/Lbs Step 2: loosen in sequence (1) full turn Step 3: torque to 41 Ft/Lbs Step 4: torque to 73 Ft/Lbs









B4000 4.0 6 Cylinder

Torque sequence --------- ' 5 1 3 7 ' ' ' ' 6 4 2 8 ' --------- Step 1: torque cylinder head bolts in sequence to 26 Ft/Lbs Step 2: torque cylinder head bolts to 56 Ft/Lbs Step 3: turn cylinder head bolts in sequence an additional 90-degrees recheck final torque in sequence *** CAUTION ***engine uses Torque To Yield head bolts (TTY) that permanently stretch during the initial installation. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head is replaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.


Good luck with this job!

What size engine does a 2000 Pontiac Grand am have and does it have spark plugs?


It will either have a four cylinder 2.4 liter or a 6 cylinder 3.4 liter.

The 2.4 liter will have four plugs located under the cover on top of the engine. The cover can be removed by removing the four bolts with a 13mm socket, unplugging the connector on the drivers side, and lifting up.

The 3.4 liter will have three plugs on the fron and three plugs on the back. You can follow the plug wires from the coil to the spark plugs. Remove the wires from the plugs and remove/install.

How many quarts or oil do my 2000 dodge interpid take???


Most engines four cylinder and six cylinder are going to have a five quart oil pan. Put in four and a half quarts start the engine for a couple of minutes and shut it back off. Check the dipstick. Nine times out of ten you will need to put in the remaining one half of the fifth quart. Dodge recommends SAE 5W-30 oil in the 3.3-liter engine and SAE 10W-30 oil in the 3.5-liter engine. Selecting the proper oil for your engine will ensure that the components of your engine are protected.
