PLEASE HELP! I have a 3.0L flex fuel engine that I need to replaced!

(1999 Ford Ranger)
in Clinton Township, MI on August 20, 2010
Can I use any 3.0L engine or only ranger? Can I use non- flex fuel and could I use an engine from a aerostar, taurus, or sable? If I can use the other engines what would I have to change over. I'm really in need of getting my truck running as quick as possible without major headaches. Thanks for your knowledge and experience!

A Flex Fuel motor is a Flex Fuel Motor, the Fuel Injectors and Camshaft profile are pretty different from a gasoline engine, so I would be hesitant to switch engines. How about taking out your flex fuel motor and fixing it? A good engine machine shop should be able to fix it for less than you would have to pay for another engine, even a used one.

Thanks for the advice! Save me a lot of frustration. I have another question... the engine rusted because coolant got into the engine...can it still be machined. Under $1000+-? I'm kinda new at this stuff.
