    is it a completely rebuilt motor? or just a top end resulting from a blown head gasket or cracked head? what motor is it? details about the motor size and year of 4Runner would really help anyone giving advice to you

    As far as I know theyre replacing the motor with another 1995/'96 3.4 ltr 6 cyl motor out of a 4runner that was in an accident but was very salvagable only 90k miles on it. Is there anything I should be concerned about? Any questions I should inquire about this motor theyre replacing it with? Please and thanks:)

    well are the rebuilding the whole thing or just the things that werent salvageable? theres alot of things that can happen to a motor internally depending on how hard of a wreck its been in
