I am pretty sure my engine has failed at 118,000 miles. It has had a bad oil leak from the front seal through the timing chain cover and the oil pressure light stays on with a loud ticking from the front of the engine. It sounds like the oil pressure sending unit is bad and caused one of the front cams to fail. I can get my hands on another 1998 Duratec, with about 80K, from a local yard for $250, but the engine has been sitting for a few years. My mechanic said that as long the donor car has had no water enter the manifold and the hood has stayed closed, then the used motor should have no problems being used. I trust him but have never done this before. I have worries about the engine sitting so long without running. I know I would put new front and rear seals in, plus check the timing chain and tensioners. I would also think about using my existing intake and throttle body from the current engine. It has been a good car and I need to keep it going for a few more years. What are your suggestions and comments? Other engines in the area range from $750 for a 89K to $500 for anything 100k and up.
