Not without changing everything over from the vehicle that the 4.0 motor came from. The computer harness and a whole list of other things.

How to fix head gusket without taking apart engine

That would be impossible. If the head gasket has failed than the only tru fix is to replace it. This would involve an extensive disassembly of the major engine components. There are stop leak products on the market that claim to fix these problems. I can assure you that these are band-aides. As we know they only cover the wound they do not heal it. The only way you could fix it without taking the engine apart is to replace the engine with a used or remanufactured engine. This would still involve the transfer of parts from one engaging to another and the removal and install of the engine itself. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Is it cheaper to get a motor? Or do you think they are trying to get money from me?

  • A lot of work goes into the replacement of a flex plate. Often time, replacing the back end of the engine becomes necessary. What he is saying is he may be able to get an engine and put it in for cheaper than all the labor involved with what needs done with your engine. The thing is a new engine would be FAR more expensive than a used engine. Anytime you buy a used engine you have to strip it down anyway and put a bunch of new parts anyway to make sure it does not go bad after you install it. Needless to say this is a lot of labor hours as well. It is going to cost some money either way but a new engine will not be cheaper and a used engine will need some labor hours put into it as well. It is my opinion that a new motor would not be cheaper. I would seek a second and a third opinion and when you get them opinions don't tell them what the others told you other than what is wrong and how much to fix and see what they say. Here is a brief description of the flex plate.

    A vital part of an automobile engine equipped with automatic transmission, a flexplate consists of a piece of thick sheet metal that bolts to the crankshaft and torque converter. Similar in function to a flywheel in manual transmission engines and called a flexplate due to its expansion, or flexing, during the operation of the engine, flexplate usage presents opportunities for cracks to develop.

    Noise - The classic and most obvious symptom of a cracked flex plate involves the sound it makes while the engine is running. Descriptions of the sound include clanking, chirping and a light knocking. The reason for the sound involves the flex plate's location and its function. Those factors ensure that when the engine starts and the driver puts it in drive, the cracked flex plate's movement will create a noise.

    I hope this helps you.

What is involved in replacing motor in 1992 mr2

You have to undue all the pipes, and connections(be sure to label each pipe and wire to prevent further headaches upon re installation.) Drain all fluids out of engine and transmition. (might as well do a coolant flush through the entire coolant system while the engine is out through the pipes that lead to and from the radiator.) Depending on if you have a 3sgte mr2 you may have to remove the turbo to make the engine easier to remove (you have to take the engine, and transmition out through the bottom of the car. remove rear axles if you can, may have to just remove them from the car's suspension and take them out with the engine and transmition
Thats what you have to do to remove the engine. to replace just the engine you will have to remove the transmition from the engine, buy a new engine-transmition seal, replace it, and bolt the old transmition to the new engine.
Repeat the removal steps in reverse to install the drive unit again

How much work is involved in replacing a fan belt for a 2003 Toyota Corolla? Would appreciate the help!!

Replacing the belt is easy enough to do. I don't know which type engine you have, but basically there is a tensioning arm that has to be pryed back to remove and install the belt.
You should have a routing diagram on your car, usually in the engine compartment (on the hood or fender). Or in the owner's manual.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Rear main seal leaks..does this affect transmission??

A leaking rear main seal will not cause your transmission to leak.

The transmission has its own seal and should not leak because of the engine rear main seal.

Due to the labor involved in replacing the rear main seal on the engine, it is best if you replace the front transmission seal at the same time if possible.

Installation varies on different vehicles but the principles are the same.
