Hi Ben, we were unable to determine the precise size of the engine oil temperature sensor threads, is it M19 x 1.5 or do you know? Thanks in advance, Eric...I went through this exact process and have detailed notes and pictures if you need them

Awesome!We got it running today! It cranked but would not start and then I remembered that we pulled the power fuse and the relay for the suspension, put them in and started first crack, idles at about 1200 rpm for about 2 minutes and then drops to about 800 rpm, thermostat opens after about 10 minutes, then suspension shoots up to the top of its range, did not know how to stop it, so shut engine off and will read the owners manual tonight. Attached photo with suspension extended...
Thanks Dave, my wife is down there right now (New York) visiting her brother and family in Queens (Floral Park), I'm heading out to the shop to do more buttoning up after spending most of yesterday picking up supplies and getting the insurance and registration straightened out. Still have to do the road test and get the Provincial (State) inspection done when the machine gets here but it is looking better every day...Awesome!PHP:
good to hear!Test drove Mr. Ranger Rover today for 200 KM and need a new low beam H7 bulb, but all the rest of this vehicle seems to be in excellent condition, can understand why the previous owner was upset but didn't want it hanging around by parting it out. I'll be picking up wifey at the Calgary airport as a surprise later today as long as long as I don't screw up the headlight bulb replacement. Otherwise, the Nissan X-Trail will be her ride...
Trans fluid change is a pain in the butt.Another surprise! Pulled the headlight assembly and discovered HID aftermarket, so my fix was to remove both and replace with Sylvania mid range H7 bulbs, much easier and no more worries. Picked up wife at airport, have put about 800 Km on this and only 1 minor engine check came on (O2 sensor) at 300 Km but I reset it and all OK now. Likely changing the oil and filter on Monday, figuring out easiest way to change tranny fluid...
Hi, there is a difference in the Ford motor mount mount on the drivers side( USA cars), the top bolt hole at the rear of the motor hasn’t been taped out.Hi All, Newbie here.
So here's the scoop.
We bought a 2006 4.0 LR3 about a month ago. Spent money on new tires (Copper discoverer H/T Plus. Very good) and bought a whole set of controls arms front and back (sitting in the garden, waiting to go on)
Then the engine blew! In the middle of absolutely nowhere in BC Canada... at midnight... in the bear infested bit... on a long weekend.
After a $2000 towing bill to get it 14 hours home, it turns out the engine is toast. Limping it 160km to the nearest one horse town means the engine is full of the camchain cassette filings and done for.
Landrover Canada wants $11,500 for a new engine... plus tax... plus shipping FROM THE UK!
Ford wants $4400 for a new Ranger 4.0 engine
I can't find a second hand engine in Canada.
I can however, find a very lightly used 2007 Ford ranger 4.0 that is technically the same engine (except lower compression and different timing, the differences I've found so far) for $650. meaning the computer is going to give a big "Nope" if I put it in.
... saving a gazzillion dollars!
So, to the help part. I need a Guru. someone that can tell me what the differenced are between a Ford ranger 2007 4.0 V6 and an 2006 LR3 so we can canibalise the different buys into the new engine.
Has anyone ever attempted this? Did anyone find software issues and fixes? If its not possible, where do I find an engine in Canada nd any other useful information anyone has.
Someone, *somewhere must have the information of the differences between engine part code 300AABB (or 300AABC) with a ford part number of 6006 or 6007 and a Ranger engine part number 6006AARW
So, over to you guys ...
