Hey guys,

I need some help. I am getting tired of throwing miney into my engine to get it fixed. I am looking at putting a new engine in my car. Has anyone done this? Know how much it costs?

Also, any good links for new engine resellers would be helpful.

Thanks

If your doing the same size motor it should be a snap.

A dealer would probably charge top dollar but a new crate motor (3400) is about $2200. You could get a used motor on eBay for dirt cheap.

Here's 2 links I know I got that price from one of these sites

Alero Upgrades (www.upgrades.aleromod.com) GM good wrench (www.gmgoodwrench.com)

What exactally has been wrong with the engine itself? The 3.4 is pretty solid except for the LIM leak and the tranny could be better.

More HP is needed too =D

How many miles are on ur engine right now?

Not that I know of on the forums here. May have been done. I don't know how much differnet the mounts may be and such and I dunno if it's made from FWD.

Totally different design really.

I have 84000 miles on the engine right now. I am having problems with it overheating. The head gasket seems to be blown. The LIM gasket has been replaced twice now. I just want a new car but my wife won't let it happen. SO I figure that I could just get a new engine. Then I might have less probs.
