Question about 2000 Toyota Camry
My trusty 2000 Camry (170K miles, yes I drive a lot) engine threw a rod on the highway! There is a big gaping hole, so now I need to decide if it's worth fixing. I wasn't expecting to have to get another car at this point. Our other two Camrys have both driven to 270K+ and are still going.
1) Is it worth fixing? Seems like the price to fix is about the same or slightly higher than the worth of the car.
2) If I go with the fix, is a remanufactured engine better than one from the junk yard?
3) One mechanic recommended Jasper engines w/ warranty. I've read some good reviews, some bad, any experience?
Thanks so much.
Can i buy it from you. MPL

On your coment.
I'm a mechanic...
To decide for a USED engine Or REBUILT engine.
The Difference 1- is the Price
On used How many miles have the USED engine
How was the maintenance on the Engine. ( Never know)
The warranty Used only 30 days.
But is the Cheap option. depend of your money.
JASPER is ONE of the BETTER ENGINE and TRANS. Rebuilder company.
They have 2 warrantys, One 36,000 miles,
The other ONE is 72,000, wrote on papers.
They give to you A complete warranty.
If the ENGINE fail During the Warranty time. they will give to you an other engine, and pay for the Labor to Remove and Install the Second Engine.
If you do with JASPER ASK to the Installer for the Warranty papers if he buyit.
OK. O hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya ...
