The cost depends on the replacement motor, you may be able to find a used engine for around$1200, a remanufatured or rebuild engine will mcost likely cost close to $3000 for the V-6 engine, a 4 cylinder would be about $500 less, this is not counting the labor at around $1000.
I can help you on the rebuild info. What is wrong with the engine? If it is real bad it would likely be cheaper to just replace the engine with a used engine from a salvage yard. Usually replacement engine parts for toyota aren't cheap. The used engine will be the cheaper option.
my solution would be to replace the engine in order to avoid headaches.if the rod came out through the side of the block,then replacing the engine block would be your best option and alot cheaper than rebuilding.try to find an engine with low miles and just drop it in to save time and money.hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny
I can give you some general advice, based on past experience, as I don't know what moter you have.
(6cyl 8cyl etc.) I would more often then not go with
the low milage used engine from a salvage yard.
As most of the 2nd engine swaps I have done have
been to replace rebuilt's from the chain store rebuilders, and some others.There some very good
rebuilders out there, but you have to do the homework. The best teacher is word of mouth,
especialy if it comes from a mechanical background.
If you decide to have it done tell your mechanic what
you wan't, a low to mid range milage engine(depending on cost diff.) installed. Then he will make
a couple of calls, get a price for the engine and give you a quote. I'll take a guess of about $1,200.00
-$1,500.00 Now you have to decide if the jeep is worth the money. Hope this helps. Good luck.
This is catastrophic for the engine and there will be damage beyond the inevitable bent valves. This is the cost of poor preventative maintenance. Rebuilding the engine will be expensive as will installing a replacement unit. Get some quotes but I suggest it's probably not worth it given the market value of the vehicle.
sounds like lifters, rods normally make a knocking sound try putting a couple of bottles of engine flush in and run the car around the block a couple of time then drain the oil and change the filter and replace the oil with a quality 15w 40 grade oil and see if the noise clears up. if it is still there you can try product called moreys oil addative this often helps quiet down liftes if still no good oyu may need to replace your lifters
