Engine swap cost

Asked by Sep 29, 2016 at 01:50 AM about the 2010 Ford Fusion SEL V6 AWD

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

So my car threw a rod on 9-25-16, and I have
a quote from a Ford dealership for $2,000
out the door. Engine has 37K and my car has
137K. Just looking to know if $2K is a good
price, including the cost of the engine?

Get a quote from and independent shop for a new or remanufactured engine with a warranty. 2 grand for a used engine is too much.

$2K includes installation

Yep I figured that, it is still a used engine and your paying top dollar for the installation when there are certified independant shops out there that can save you a some bucks and get you a better engine.

All shops in area are $75-200 more, engine will have 100K LESS THAN car does now

Engine ordered from LKQ

I have used LKQ in my shop, most of the stuff was good, I think I only had to return a couple of things back, found problems before installing them. 1 was an engine, I always pulled the oil pan and checked the rod and mains, that one engine had a spun bearing and it was a low mileage one. Are they going to check that before installing it?

I made sure to have them put it into the notes for the tech to check it over BEFORE installation

Good idea, might save you a bigger problem later on.

So with all that said, $2K at a dealership is fair then?

In your area I guess it is, if everyone else is higher for the same work.

1,950

If that includes installation, it's a very good deal for an engine with mileage that low, especially from a dealer. Jump on it.
