Interchangeable parts

Post by msprow01 » Fri Jan 27, 2017 7:46 pm

I recently purchased a 2006 Freestyle that has some damage to the hood and drivers side, are all or some of the parts interchangeable on a Ford Five Hundred?

Easiest way to check for interchangeabilty is to use rock auto and profile both vehicles and compare part numbers

Hi All,
I am new to this family.
I bought ford freestyle 2005, SE, FWD and my tramission was bad and was fixed and this time around it went bad again. I know the technology is CVT and I really don't want to use both the engine & transmission again.
My question is that is it possible to replace the ford freestyle engine with a Tarus X engine since the body frame is the same and if so how?
Thanks, Martins

HI ALL,
it is just to be sure that a Tarus X engine can fit into freestyle chassis with slight adjustment. Has any body replaced a ford freestyle engine and gear box with the ford Tarus X engine on the inside of freestyle chassis?

Here is a thread documenting swapping the 6 speed trans from a 500 into the Freestyle. The engine & trans should fit, it will just be a question of electronics.

Theoretically, yes. The 500 could be had with the 6 speed and since the 3.5 fit the T-Rex logic assumes it will fit in the Freestyle

If the engine of Tarus X fits into freestyle 2005 SE, FWD chassis, please what other things needs to be changed - Electronics, etc.
Kindly give detailed description if possible and or who can advise further on the adventure.
