Re: 1998 ford f150

Not too bad, the hardest part is keeping track of the sensors. Was easier on the previous generation as the engine sits a little further under the cowl than the earlier models. Tech tip: label your sensor wires as you pull them.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: 1998 ford f150

This question cannot be answered without knowing more about your mechanical experience and knowing if you have the necessary tools and work space?

We can walk you through an engine change, it's straight forward if you are installing the same type engine, but it involves a couple of days work (I've swapped engines in one day, but it's better to take it slow and be methodical) and another person should be available to assist when you actually lift the engine from the truck.

Tip: It's not wise to change engines without replacing all coolant hoses and flushing the radiator and trans cooler.

Why did the old engine seize??
