Let us know how it turns out. As far as a visual inspection of the engine, they look exactly the same so they would have to look at numbers on the block to tell. Also, if it is a fusion engine in my mazda do I need to swap the mazda ecu for a fusion ecu? Ichecked for poodles of oil but nothing. I've heard of people using the 07 engine and I used a 06 for this guide. The contact stated that while driving at 60 mph, the vehicle suddenly stopped moving forward although the engine was still running. My question is why would the plugs be different size if engine dimensions are the same? The newly redesigned 2008 Ford Escape wins acclaim for a comfortable cabin and stylish exterior. I would consider myself more than just a casual mechanic, but I did this and it worked out great!

Remove the nuts and disconnect the cables. In 2005 the Mazda 6 used two versions of the ignition system, the old style spark plug wires plus one coil-pack and also a new individual coil-on-plug system. I found and downloaded a factory manual , which helped with torque settings and setting timing. When comparing the heads, the spark plug wells on the '04 have a deeper bore and less thread length than the '06. Just an observation, with the timing cover off i was able to inspect the guides and tensioner on my motor with 117k and the new one with 55k. Please clarify so we can put this one to bed.
But it still purrs like a kitten. Please post an update with your findings. It's held on with four bolts at the hinges. I looked into having someone take of the valve cover and check timing but they where saying it would be hundreds of dollars to even look. Thanks to Steve Krause I have adjusted the cog on the intake cam so the Fusion engine matches the Mazda engine. Basically, if you have the newer 06-08 Mazda 6 with the coil-on-plug setup then swapping to a Fusion engine is a breeze - the parts that you have to reuse from your old engine are the crankshaft pulley, crank position sensor, and oil pressure sensor.
Remove the bolt and detach the ground wire. I bet it's something very simple, like in my case. I have found a 06 milan 2. But by all means if you want to sell the 03 Mazda engine for the price of the Fusion I'll take it, less work for me. Its not the number of teeth on the cog but also placement of the teeth.
The Escape Limited delivers a color-keyed grille, posh leather seating, and auto-dimming rearview mirror. Ordered a set of 04 mazda 2.

According to Kelley Blue Book, the safety ratings of the 2008 Ford Escape are identical or better minus the rollover rating than similar models such as the Mazda Tribute, Mercury Mariner, and Saturn Vue. I will be writing a thread that hopefully becomes a sticky with pictures, when my schedule allows. Remove the whole tube along with the purge solenoid valve has the black plug - disconnect the cable from it first.
Is there anything else that could cause that code to appear? When I swapped the cam the inside of this engine was so clean and obviously well maintained, I cant imagine it has anything to do internally but I just wanted to get the groups thoughts and hopefully some insight. The car in this article is a 2006 Mazda 6 with the 2. Will the engine be an easy swap or is there other significant differences between them? Here are my observations after looking at your posts: 3. Crank pulley and sensor will have to be swapped. Went to do the swap and nothing is mounting how its supposed to. Although I have not bought a Milan engine, I don't imagine there would be any difference between the Milan and Fusion swap. Since it was at roughly 200k miles I figured I would do the fusion motor swap.
As for me, I have not done the swap by pulling the front end off so I can't really update anything since I don't have any new info or pictures.

You can go ahead and block the hole if you like, for your own piece of mind. If someone just wants to make sure and eliminate the possibility of the cogs being out of alignment, there has to be a way to measure this.
I do not have the tools or the time, and I am wondering how much extra time I should expect to get billed for swapping all the components compared to putting in the same Mazda engine like he wants to. Valve cover gasket actually it's a rubber ring , intake rubber rings and exhaust gasket reusable. Brought back probably 3 times for water leaks from the rear window. Remove the bolt from the left transaxle mount. Thank you for putting the guide together and hosting, I wouldn't have bought the fuzion engine without it, which saved me quite a bit of money. I just wanted to thank you for this most helpful post! It does not affect spark.
