Rebuilding 2. L 4 cyl 1997 jeep wrangler

5

Asked by Feb 06, 2016 at 07:55 PM about the 1997 Jeep Wrangler SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I had a friend remove the valves and pistons and found one of my cylinders
scored, is it more cost effective to replace the whole long block or to rebuild the
short block. I'm pretty certain components other than the valves and piston
rods have been stolen during this process (water pump, oil pump, and maybe
other things)

Your existing block would have to be bored and or sleeved to get the scoring out so that would require new pistons and then replacing all of the missing parts, you might be better off getting a long block at least then you would have a warranty on that engine. Sounds like a real mess.
