2000 XJ needs a new heart

Post by Shaun » Tue Sep 11, 2018 7:43 am

Local shop quoted $3700. Seems high. I feel like I could get a decent used 4.0 and either do it myself or have some else do it cheaper than that. Opinions? Any takers?

They’re not a complicated motor. If you have the time and tools I doubt it would be too hard.

That's not a really bad price, assuming it's a warrantied reman. If they are just swapping in a used motor, you could by the engine and all the tools for much less, if you have the time.
