Bought a 2003 jag x type with blown freeze plugs, brand new crate engine was supposed to be delivered with car, scammer did not deliver engine Can freeze plugs be repaired?

Yes they can but the plugs let go for a reason, find out why. A crate engine costs about $9,000 for this car so find it hard to believe you where really given this promise.

How much does a new engine cost.?

It would depend on which engine you have and whether you need the complete engine, or just the long block. Look up Chevrolet Crate Motors on the internet. You should be able to get dealer prices on all their engines. You might look into rebuilt engines from local sources. Generally, rebuilt engines are only going to be long block assemblies. They will be a lot cheaper than a crate motor, but the warranty won't be as good. Personally, I would go for the new engines.

Engine rebuild cost

it can vary quite significantly I would suggest getting several estimates as well as checking with someone like jasper engines which sells entire crate motors ready to install and which have a nationwide warranty. Also upgrading a vehicles horsepower can reduce the longevity of the transmission and drivetrain components if they are not rated for the additional torque and stress produced through higher horsepower. Have the installer thoroughly inspect the vehicles condition and advise you of any other drivetrain or suspension related addition which may be necessary for the upgraded engine addition. Be safe and good luck

I need to rebuild my engine.

You're better off buying a 'crate' motor instead. Rebuilding an engine is seriously complicated, but dropping in a freshly rebuilt one is not that bad. You can also try the local junkyards, they often have complete engines for sale. The nice thing about crate motors is they usually come with a warranty, I doubt a junkyard motor would.
