Are you talking about OEM replacement crate motors? If so I think I heard or read somewhere that brand new Toyota Tacoma crate motors run about $7,000. That's about all I know.

The motors out last the trucks. I'd bet the crate motor market is slim on these ~ High price and very limited market. Good used enignes are plentiful and reasonably priced ~ nation wide.

ya i've herd of them for around 700 but i think its basically a rebuild. new pistions and a few more things. ya but i think im fine. full synthtic every 2500 miles since day one, super clean throughout the whole truck and new trany 40,000 ago. 149,400 overall miles

Why did you need a new trany? Just curious.

well haha its funny. i talked to the pervious owner and i thought he meant a new tranny but he meant he serviced it 40,000 but now im having issues with 2nd gear kinda bitting with the clutch all the way in when shifting but all other gears are flawless so:confused:

349,000 miles truck still runs/shifts great need some body work but other than that no major motor/trans issues mobil one 5/30 synthetic since day one no major replacements so far just normal stuff shocks rotors pads crap like that. overall very very pleased with my truck im gonna drive and fix it until i cant anymore.
