You are going to spend around $3k, thatís normal. Iím a retired very skilled mechanic & i still wasnít ready to do installs myself. Spend the money to get it done properly.
I plan to just get it installed and sell it

Ive owned the car a year and never liked how it drove

I live in an apartment with on the street parking, I have no place to part it out
Ah sh*t. Thatís even worse situation. You canít have insurance total it out and you take the check and do something else? Iím just tryin to suggest anything other than having to swap that motor. Itís a lot any way you look at it.

I only liability insurance and they'd totally it out and pay me pennies on the dollar vs me paying $3000 and sell the car for minimum $12000

dawg...

...how the F*CK you only get charged $500 to get your engine re-placed on your car??

i was charged $1,500 in total to have a used transmission replace the blown transmission on my previous 2010 mustang.

thought that sounded normal.

dealership was gonna charge me $5,000...

man, i will have my car towed to whichever mechanic you know if he charging that low for ENGINE swaps.

It just makes more sense to spend $3000 on a motor for a car worth $10000 running vs $1000 junked not running

Iím not stranded and have another car to drive

Engine swaps are pretty easy but shops can charge you out the a*s due to what a dealer would charge. Make sure that engine that was coming from the wrecked vehicle comes with a warranty or some sort


Well maybe a $500 engine won't come with one though.

I would have him do timing belts and water pump on it before he throw it in

OP that's way too much fu*kin money. 1000 dollars at the most is what I would charge someone to drop in an engine. I'll reseal every fu*kin thing, repair any broken/damaged connectors or harnesses while I'm at it too. It's a fu*kin 4 cylinder, you can have the bi*ch on the ground in an hour. Damn bro.

Im just trying to find the best price

def not the way to shop for this


you might end up with wiring issues or other sh*t going wrong if someone doesnt do it all correctly --- especially on a newer more electrical intensive and computer centric car.


thats a*suming you even buying a good engine. i'd pay more for a running engine in a wrecked car --- compression and leak down test before buying it.


sometimes its better to eat the loss up front and sell it as is or as parts.


good luck --- keep us updated

i'd try selling it for 3-5k as is ---- but we got the market for that in Cali.


why'd you wreck your engine anyways?

Swapping Engines?

Price Comparisons?
Yikes

Good look brotha.

How does having an affordable car deteine your financial status? Having a paid off vehicle would say the opposite IMO.

If you are so well off why would you punch down on us impoverished folks
