Fully loaded 2007 ford explorer v8 Should I replace motor or get rid of it?
Do the math. Only you can decide. How is the rest of the vehicle? Do you like it? If so, go ahead and get it replaced. Maybe a used motor?
Check on the price for a remanufactured motor, not a rebuild, from a reputable company. I replaced the v6 in a 2003 from Jasper with a reman about 4 years ago. It still purrs like a kitten. It cost about 3500 bucks. If the vehicle is in otherwise good condition make a decision. Replacement vehicles are expensive and more than 3500 bucks.
