Does anyone know if a 3.8 Liter v-6 from a 1998 and up Windstar would also
fit a 1994 Lincoln Continental. My 94 died from bad head gaskets and I was
wondering if the Windstar engine would be a direct bolt in. I understand I
would hav to bolt most of the fuel rails etc from my old one onto it. Just
wondering if the mounting and bolt up to the transaxle is similar?
Unfortunately, 1994, the last year of the V-6 Continental, is a unique
engine set up. 1989-1993 will interchange quite readily among Lincolns.
For the good news, you should be able to find an entire 3.8 for your 1994
for about $700.00. Is the car serviceable to the point where it is worth
replacing the engine?
Yes, Nothing else is wrong. I bought the car for 1$ from muy aunt. She had
the air suspension replaced last year, and everything else is fine. But I am
worried since this is a readheaded stepchild in Lincoln about anything else
going wrong. That is why I was wondering if the newer style of engine would
Well, the newer 3.8's used a DIS coil pack instead of a distributor.
Does yours have a distributor or coil pack? My guess is if yours is
a distributor version, the newer engines would be problematic.
Keep in mind the FWD versions are also different from the RWD.
