#1 of 2 Replacing '04 XT engine - ideas?
Jul 09, 2011 (5:01 am)
Evidently I either 'blew' or 'threw' a rod, and been told I need a new engine for my '04 XT... after only 115K miles. This happened immediately after replacing my turbo and intercooler, which blew twice within 3 weeks, at a cost of $2,700... not a happy camper.
Am looking for replacement engines, but am wary - is it worth it?
I have found a few online: $5K for one with 33K miles, or $3K for one with 68K miles... plus installation, etc...
Also found an '06 XT engine w/98K miles for $2K. Would that engine even fit into my '04?
Any advice would be appreciated - do I have any recourse with SOA at this point? I love my XT, but am a bit exhasperated at this point. Thanks!
