Question Superduty Engine Change

Hey Everyone,
I just purchased my first ford truck!! I couldnt afford much but at least I have my dream truck, a 2000 F250 Superduty!!! Bad news is.... the motor is junk!! Oh well, at least I have her in my driveway!
I would like to ask the experts if a 2002 F150 xlt 5.4 Triton would be a problem free replacement? Thank you guys for your time!!!

Re: Superduty Engine Change

Is it a gas engine now or is it a diesel?

Re: Superduty Engine Change

The 5.4 from the '02 should fit. Be sure to keep your bell housing as the F150 is probably different so the transmission can align up correctly. To my knowledge, the engine mounts are the same but I'd check a repair/service manual to double check, if available. If your truck is an automatic it makes it easier but the PCM will still need to be programmed. You'll have to use the PCM from the F150 as it was meant to run that particular engine, you won't be able to use your current computer to run the '02 engine. Also be sure to take the wiring harness.

Personally, I'd save myself the hassle and get a rebuilt engine for another $1000-1500 from Jasper Engines - WITH a warranty.
