cost of new engine on Forester 2000
About $2,000.00, it also depends what you want attached to the engine. You can have your old one re-built for half the price at a local rebuilder, or Ebay may have one.
Right, in my area labor to remove and reinstall will run you around $3-4K, I'd call around for quotes. A used engine is an option like joe suggested, but then you won't get a warranty. Are you having headgasket issues? Overheat your engine? Considering your vehicle is worth around $3K, I would cut my loses and look for another.
I agree Tom...
$2,000 is way too low. Costs for a rebuilt engine could run $3,000 to $5,000 PLUS labor. A new engine from Subaru would likely be much higher. These days it is hard to find a good shop that still rebuilds engines as crate engines are cheaper. http://ccrengines.com/# http://ccrengines.com/#
