Motor for 2002 lancer

Im looking into buying a 2002 lancer and it needs a new motor. Im wondering how much that would be to fix it and if it is worth buying for 500 dollars. It seems like a good price if all i have to do is buy a new motor. But I'm not sure.

Strange idle

This is called surging, and can have a number of causes.
1. There's a leak/crack in a vacuum hose. Check and replace as needed.
2. The throttle body IAC motor is jammed or busted. Usual cause is a build up of carbon and oil sludge in the throttle body (TB). The fix is to pull the TB off and thoroughly clean it. The build up can also indicate high oil use.

For a 10 yo car, its probably done around 150,000km, and the valve guides and seals are worn. Do a compression test. Follow the car and see if it blows blue or black smoke on acceleration. Worn guides may also cause the engine to fail an emissions test. The fix, if you are so inclined, is to pull the head, get it overhauled and put it back on.
You may decide that this car is not worth buying.

Im looking at a jeep 2002 with 4.7l motor. was there any problems with that year over all?grand cherokee sport.135000 a women with no knowlegde of buying a vehicle by myself. thank you jody

The 4.7l is an overhead cam V-8 motor. It is plagued with problems involving sludge build up, poor oil circulation, and engine failure due to lack of lubrication. Personally, I would avoid any vehicle with this engine.

Mitsubishi Lancer ES '02 - Rattling noise in 1st gear...

I think you might need to ask someone to throttle up the car and you look underneath to try locating the rattling noise. Don't forget that this model runs the exaust pipe in front of the motor so it might be an exaust rattle as well??

ASE mechanic:
Sounds like you need to check for loose belts and or pulleys. and or maybe the A/C compressor mounting bolts are loose. in all extreme measures the cycling clutch could be going bad, and motor mounts still can solve problem
