    my 2000 taco v6 3.4liter 2wd blew a rod.

    i am looking for a good engine with no damage with less than 100,000 miles on it.

    a 4 runner engine would also work.

    pensacola florida. and thanks for car part website. from the forum some guys say buy local with the engine still in the vehicle so you know how many miles are on it. others say reman but then other say they don't always use toyota parts. it's one of those no win situations.
