Hello fellas (and ladies if you are on here) my 04 Explorer with the 4.0 8th digit K spun a bearing. I guess my question is could I swap it out with an 04 4.0 motor with the 8th digit E. I have hard a finding a forum with answers I am seeking, I'm sure it out there so if anyone could help me out I would appreciate it.

Thanks

Ashton

I believe the short answer is “yes.” You will need to swap over all the components from your engine to the “new” engine. Maybe just injectors etc, but perhaps there’s are some sensor variances as well.

Keep your computer, fuel rails, injectors etc.
You have a flex fuel car and need to keep your fuel related items to put on the donor motor.

Do some Googling of “Explorer 4.0 flex fuel engine swap.” Lots of info out there, just have to find the posts that have relevant info. From what I see, it’s fuel rail and injectors.
