What does a rebuilt engine cost?
Depends entirely on the engine you're replacing. But anywhere from $500-up for an engine with a warranty.
It is actually cost effective to buy a remanufactured engine from a reliable company like Jaspers engines. They have a good reputation and nationwide warranty. That will depend on who does the rebuild, and what area you are in. A typical rebuild here runs anywhere from 1200 to 1800 depending on what shop does it. Paid $800.00 to have my engine rebuilt.
A rebuilt engine can be bought for about $800. The old engine has to be returned after it is removed from youir car. The new engine has to be installed at a cost of about $2500. Parts attached to the engine may need replacement -- the alternator, the pollution control devices, the fuel injectors, etc. Total cost could run as high as $6000.
If the engine is an R2, RF or HW diesel engine, it would cost about USD 1,300. in the Philippines where i had my engine completely rebuilt, it cost me that much. what was not replaced was the engine block and the crankshaft only that required a USD 400 to reface. to buy a used one on an "as-is" basis, would cost almost the same plus the mechanic's fee that would be about USD 300.
yes it is. if i only knew that then.... MAKE SURE that you get the timing belt changed or else it will take out half your engine when it goes. that's what happened to mine. it would have cost about $300 or less to have the timing belt changed... instead, it cost over $1300 to have that and half the engine rebuilt once the belt broke.
