Default 2000 4.0 Replacement Options?

My engine was dumping a lot of coolant into the oil pan. I am very positive the block is cracked at the coolant passageways inside the block. Heads and gaskets are fine. I have pulled the engine out now.

I am looking for an engine or donor truck from 98-00 that I can put in but I have had no luck finding one in my budget and/or one that requires rebuilding.

If anyone has run into this situation, I'd like to know if I can get an earlier or later year 4.0 that I can put in without changing the PCM or need another transmission unless I actually find a donor truck. I thought about putting just a 2.3 in but I feel it would be more of a headache, mostly because I would need to change the PCM unless I'm wrong.

if you want a 4 liter you are limited to the years you mentioned. 2001 was conversion to sohc. timing chain-tensioner problems 2001-2005. avoid if possible. 5 liter better motor but you would need different transmission to handle extra power. extra moding too. as for earlier motor you have to consider emissions. good.luck.

For a 4.0 ohv you could source from an explorer also. You might have to swap upper parts such as sensors and the upper intake manifold.
