Just picked up a 2005 GT ,the motor is blown . I have a wrecked low mile 2007 GT that i want to pull the motor and drop into the 2005 . My question is ,can i pull the motor and automatic as a unit or am i going to have to split them to get it all out . Motor is the 3 valve and 5 speed auto .

I cant believe how easy it is to strip one of these motors to be pulled ,almost everything is right where you can get to it ,nothing like my Expedition ,it was royal **tch !

I spent yesterday and today pulling motors ,the 4.6 3 v from the wrecked 07,and the 3 v from the red 2005 ,easiest motors i have ever pulled . And by the way the blown motor in the 05 isnt ! Yep the starter was stuck ,the solonoid kicks but the starter doesnt spin ,i put a breaker bar on the crank and it spins with no problem haha ! Pulled it any way because it had around 170,000 miles on it and the wrecked 07 only has 70,000. Time to pressure wash the engine compartment and the 07 motor and put it back together . And all the shelby trimming is coming off

I agree it might be easier to pull them as an assembly
But you are going to get pissed on by trans fluid out the tail shaft bad
Maybe find another driveline yoke to use while you pull it out

Motor cleaned up nice ,there were no oil leaks so mostly dust . I have simple green soaking the engine compartment and it should clean up nicely also

All hooked up ,i hit the key and it started right up . Didnt let it run long because i still need antifreeze . Going to do a oil change also before i let it run long .

It runs ,but i noticed a problem ,the 05 harnes has one plug in different from the motors 07 harness so it looks like i have to change the engine harness . The cluster reads limp mode ,i will hook up my code reader and if i cant find the problem i will stuff a viagra down the throttle body ,that should get it out of limp mode!?!?

If it has a blue oval, it probably does not need a blue pill.

The problem is likely the mismatched harness plugs. Are the plugs for the same things? Can they be adapted to mate?
I went ahead and swapped the harness ,now i have a plug by the oil pan and the new 07 motor doesnt have the plug in like the 05 has . Is this a low oil warning sender and can i simply jump it ,i sure as hell dont want to have to change oil pans

Drill a hole, add an o-ring, and install a level sensor if you've got a mind to have it working.

I am wondering if i can just take a sensor and plug it in and it would be good ,i guess it is an oil temp sensor ,as long as it doesnt show overheating i would think it would be good
