I have a problem and hope somebody might help. Recently while I was
driving my 99' Mustang Cobra, the engine died on me. I was giving it
gas as i normally do, nothing too aggressive and suddenly I could feel
the was not reving and the needle slowly kept on falling eventually to
a complete halt. After a couple of time trying to start it again, the
engine completely died. I took it to my mechanic and he told me the
crank is jammed and the engine is very well history. I then took it to
a Ford dealer and they told me the same. But unless they engine is
opened, nobody is sure.
Lack of experience on American cars is obvious here in Denmark, so I
wanted to ask you guys what you think.
If indeed the engine is seized and needs a rebuild then my options are
to buy a new engine instead, as i have my eyes on a 04' cobra engine
and was told it will fit 99 mustang without problems.
Another question is that if it is possible to use my 99' cobra engine
in a 65-70' model mustang. Actually if I buy the 04' cobra engine, then
my brother and I would try to fix the 99 engine and use it probably in
a project car 65-70' Mustang.
My apologies for the long post and appreciate any help.
