Chrysler Town and Country: What is the average cost to replace

This answer was rated:

What is the average cost to replace an engine in a 2004 Chrysler Town and Country with 3.8 L V-6? I have a quote to fix a burned valve, but it seems high so am wondering why not replace entire engine?

tim's auto repair :

hi

tim's auto repair :

you can usally buy an used engine at your local salvge yard for around $1000+/-

tim's auto repair :

for a mechanic to replace the engine may cost as much as $$800+/-

tim's auto repair :

so,,an independent shop should be able to install a good used engine for under or around $2000+/-
