Looks like my engine just went (4.0 5 speed Sport). It's a 2002 with only 148k. Came home from work last night and it was slapping pretty bad on the low end. Just had a mechanic look at it and he said it was shot. Couldn't give me a price until suppliers open on monday. I'm going to take it for another opinion as well.
Any ideas how much I'm going to be in for it with this one? Is it better just to have a re-manufactured engine dropped in or to have a shop rebuild it? Any re-manufactured engine brands to stay away from? If I do this, anything else I should have done while it's out?
