Replacing with better engine

I owned a Hyundai Starex Diesel A/T 1997 model and need to replace the engine. Is it posible to change the engine with TURBO INTERCOOLER? And change the transmission to manual? I was driving in a hi-way at 110 k/hr, then i heard a different sound coming from the engine. Then suddenly the speed reduce by itself. So i full-over the car to check the engine. And there is a different sound its like TAK..TAK..TAK..TAK... with too much vibration, I felt scared i don't know what to do.. so i switch-off the engine right away. But when i tried to start the engine again it wont start. Then I called a mechanic and he said the engine is busted. I dont know yet if the engine need to overhaul or need a replacement. Which do think is better?

Replacing engine will be a better option after running over 125k miles. You can check some option that most car owner look for while engine replacement with a used or rebuilt engine with their economy criteria.
If you want to save money with less investment, you can buy a used engine else you can go for a rebuilt or new engine also.
To buy a used or rebuild motor, there are many resources available online where you can find any of carmakers engine like one I have visited last week is www.hiperformer.com/used_engines, you can find more similar site with Google search.

You can exchange it with one that is inner cooled and turboed But thats $1500.00 in parts plus the engine and labor. Your best bet is to find out what is wrong with your engine and rebuild it. As long as there are no major damages.

My hyundai starex diesel 2.5L CRDi exhausts white smoke and poor acceleration after I cleaned injectors and replaced the fuel filter ... Need help please


The white smoke would indicate a blown head gasket. If water is getting into the engine it could cause that knocking noise. The other issue with the knocking could be as serious as a rod through the engine block.

My starex van won't start. The model is 2006 CRDi, automatic diesel. I'm so happy with the performance until I experienced that it was difficult to start it. But once its running, it runs pr


My friend had a similar problem. When he had it checked, he was told to spray staring fluid on the air filter and it started. So, he was told that if it starts by spraying starting fluid on the air filter, the problem is with the fuel pump. If not, the problem is electrical. So far, my friends starex diesel AT is running smoothly. Hope this will help you. Cheers.
