Re: Price of reconditioned engine?

depends what needs doing.. could be looking anywhere from £800 upwards for a basic engine rebuild.. probs more tbh. Would be cheaper to get a low milage second hand engine from a scrapped car.

Headgasket? They're chronic. Problem with owning a car with no current manufacturer... Nobody to produce spare parts.

Re: Price of reconditioned engine?

Yes it would be cheaper to source a previously reconditioned engine or used engine and have your one replaced.

However having your current one rebuilt would mean you know it has actually been reconditioned and that you a paying for it.

You might get people saying they are supplying a recon engine when infact its an engine which has just been steam washed
