I have a 2001 Wrangler Sport. She has been pretty much trouble free, except for things that have happened while I was off roading her.
She has seen many, many hours on the trails, and considering what she has been through, it is truly amazing how few things have "broken."

#14 of 349 1987 Jeep Wrangler Engine needed for replacement
Jan 12, 2007 (8:47 am)
I have a 87 Jeep Wrangler in perfect condition, except for a bad engine knock. I need to know how and where and whats a resonable price for a new engine. Because of the age of the car, and the fact that I'm a woman, auto shops see dollar signs when I walk in. I'm in northern NJ, and am getting desperate. Thank you!!!! ">

To get an idea of the cost for the engine itself use the internet. Check also with auto parts stores like NAPA and Autozone. Pricing varies throughout the country for both parts and labor so you need to check locally as well.
What you say about being a woman is unfortunately true, so have a male friend make any phone calls. It should be possible to get an accurate quote over the phone, as removing and replacing a Jeep engine is pretty straightforward. There should be no hidden surprises, but expect to have to renew hoses, clips, odd nuts and bolts, and consider having a new clutch installed as well.

Thanks for the info..found a place in NC called NYBlock..he said an engine is 1575..Jasper is higher..I have a friend who can make the calls..my estimates have run from 1500-4200....Even Jeep said the latter was way too high...It's a huge pain in the butt, but well worth the effort..the Jeeps in great shape, and I admit to being a little Jeep crazy:) SO Thanks!

Hello, looking for a little insight. I have a 1988 wrangler and it is making a popping sound in the front drivers side wheel whenever I make a turn. Does anyone have any ideal what that would be coming from? Thank you

hi, did u get a reply for this yet? i have a 95 wrangler and the same thing happened to me. there's a latch right below the passenger seat that allows heat from the engine to flow in. when u go over bumps n stuff this latch pops out. it's hard to explain, you just need to pop it back into the slot. i can show u if you want.

Thank you for the reply, had not heard anything from anyone on the issue. I have to talked some local people and so far the information I recieved is that it could be the cvc joint. Thank you for the response. If you let know the information you have on the latch you were talking about I will check it out.
