Re: engine replaced 98 3.0
OK, I do not doubt there could be a computer issue but I have some questions. Suppose this engine swap used a brand new, out of the box long block? What specifically is there in the engine that is unique to the computer? Heck, Ford has manufactured millions and millions of those things. They would have a documentation nightmare if the coding was unique to each engine.
I know from experience that most of these engines will at least run, maybe not well but run even if many of the sensors are missing.
There are very knowledgeable folks here who might shoot my comments down, but that is OK. That is what the discussion boards are for.
