hello, the engine on my 2000 expedition has gone bad. the rod bearings are all shewed up, this caused the crankshaft to be eaten up like a break disk. I was told to take the crankshaft off to have it repaired. the thing is im being told I need to take the tranny off. Im thinking I should just pull the engine out. If so, wouldnt it be more fesable to just swap the engine out?
so here is where I am. I know the engine says that its a windsor but I dont know how to tell if its a 5.4 or a 4.6? so how can I tell? also if its a 5.4 can I replace the engine as a direct swap with a 4.6? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks epi
