2000 F150 engine replacement

Got a 2000 F-150 4x2 with a 4.6 v8 that pooped the bed. Can any 4.6 from 1997-2003 f-150's work as a replacement, or are there differences between these years?

you want a 2000-2003 4.6l engine. Yours is a PI motor. the 1997-1999 where non PI. They will drop right in and work, but the non PI has les HP. Other than the difference in HP, the 4.6l engines are interchangeable.

Your 2000 4.6 has cop's I know 97-98 and maybe 99 4.6's don't. They have plug wires. That may be an issue too with the older engine.

Yes they will work.
But some out of cars might have a different intake manifold with the throttle body sitting differently. (Like the Mustangs)
All you would need to do is swap the intake manifold.
Oh, and some may have a different setup for all the accessories.So the front timing cover might be different.

Check this out if you are doing the work and you may be interested in going to a 5.4.

I know I am going to do this swap when my 4.6 dies.

Have fun
