Have to rebuild my I6 4.0...

Recommended Posts

Where do you live?  That will help us in order to give you the name of machine shops.


About 5 years ago I inquired of two shops in my area (Frederick MD) an estimate for a whole block rebuild.  I was quoted between $2000 and $2500.  Both estimates were conditional on the condition of the engine in the beginning.


(I ended up having it rebuilt by a client.  We bartered the services.)

If you have the money to rebuild it, maybe stroke it while your at it? Add a few extra ft/lbs, hmmmmm? :brows:


Otherwise it would be far FAR cheap to by a used one out of a junkyard. I bought mine about 5 years ago, 110k for $250

Still going strong.


Also, if you're not inclined to pull it yourself, put an ad on Craigslist, "$$$, pull engine for me at junkyard".


This is what I did, $100, had someone lined up within an hour.

Sorry for the late response - unforeseen circumstances have kept me away from this problem for a while. 


I'm not sure about the injectors - I had kind of ruled that out based off of the nature of how it had begun running leading up to this.  Maybe I need to revisit.
