what other 4.4 motor will fit my x5? from a 540? 740?

i have 153k on my x5 and i started getting a slight tick from the motor so i thought to myself it would actually be cheaper to buy a 4.4 motor then taking mine apart and doing all the work to it cause i dont wanna have downtime considering it my everyday go getter... so i was thinking about buying another 4.4 motor but everytime i look under x5 4.4's they want crazy money for it so i was looking around and i know 540's and 740's have the m62 motor same as the x5's but whats different? harness? sensors? anything thats different from those motors compared to ours? because i see the 4.4's coming from those cars are cheaper around then the 4.4's coming out of x5's when its the same motor... and does the year matter... i also see like 97 540 4.4's, its older of course but is it still the same as our motors still? if anyone can answer this. greatly appreciated

Run it till it dies! A slight tick at 153k miles shouldn't be anything to fret about. It is just getting broken in! Try a heavier weight oil and see if that helps.

A used motor will probably have the same issues, or even worse since they are trying to get rid of a used motor!

Sorry to not answer your question, but I doubt you are in need of a replacement.
