2005 navigator replacement engine

thanks all for reading and assisting. I purchased my 2005 navi with 75k, today i'm at 223k, recently it started sputtering, stalling and cutting off when i stopped at lights. When i finally made it to the The dealership they told me something like "left bank lean", one of the cams is badand a bunch of other codes, he said i put too much oil in it and it wasn't serviced in a timely manner (sorry i'm not much a technical car guy, i just love navigators). When i finally picked it up he told me all my timing was bad and I would need a new engine.

with the vehicle almost paid off, I would prefer to put an engine in it, i've priced them and they are decent to very expensive.

my question is, do I need to replace it and does it have to be a navigator engine (meaning could I go with a expedition, aviator). if i replace it with a non-navigator engine will that be bad? I know it's gonna cost me, just trying to keep my cost low

thanks

You probably need to replace it but you could check with another shop to be sure. You can find a used one here. Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market It'll show what vehicles will work and mileages too.

Re: 2005 navigator replacement engine

There are times when the engine is specifically made for the vehicle, like the Mustang or the Raptor. But even them, if the proper parts are moved over (the PCM to be specific), you chould still be able to run it, but you may have to give up some options. For the most part, any truck engine of the same size and generation should slide right in.

Got to looking, the Nav has a 5.4L, all other Lincolns had 4.6L's, you may need to go for a trucks engine. A reman from Rock Auto goes for just under 3 grand.
