2004 Tribute--where did the engine come from?
I bought a used 2004 Tribute (42,000 miles) from a Mazda dealer that 6 months later blew a head gasket. It was towed to another Mazda dealer in a different town where I was informed that the engine in the car was not the original engine--different serial number, plus writing on it indicating it came from a salvage yard. Mazda guy won't tell me where the engine in it now came from, so I don't know how old it is. No record anywhere that the engine had been swapped out. Is there a way to check where an engine came from?
