I have a 2000 ford explorer 4 wheel drive. Just put another motor in that came out of 1999 explorer sport 2 wheel drive. Does not go into gear at all. Would the wiring harness have anything to do with that? Any ideas why?

We didn't touch the linkage on the tranny. Just put the motor in.

If it is up and running but won't go into gear, check the transmission fluid level if its an auto.

torque convertor

When put engine in had trouble tightening engine to transmission don't think convertor went into transmission right. When first got it started, it made a whining sound and cleared up after few minutes, but wouldn't move after that.

Cost?

Any idea how much a front pump would cost?

the front pump is toast

+1. Never, never, never use bell housing bolts to pull transmission up tight to engine. If they don't slide together the TC isn't lined up.
