Default 95 4.0 puked what motor fits?

My 95 chucked a rod and now I either need to rebuild her or find a donor motor to drop in.

What years will fit without a ton of mods?


Thanks in advance for any help

I'm gonna be safe and say 93-97 will work as long as you get the same type of motor. If you have a sohc the computer won't work with the ohv and vise versa. But the motor range could be from 93 and up I'm not really for sure.

it all depends if it's the older style 4.0, or the new style what years to get a complete motor from. 95 was a changing year. my 95 has an older style motor (cps is different).

but you can use pretty much any 93-00 4.0 long block and just swap your sensors, intake, etc on.

How I tell what style 4.0 it is?

Are exploder motors the same? as long as I get a OHV model

i don't know everything, but i know there are two different cam position sensor styles on the back of the motor.

here is the 94 and older style (broken). this is in my 95.


and the newer style:


the newer style cap and be replaced, the older style requires pulling the entire unit out.
