Hi,

For a brand new engine, you will be looking at $5500-6000 parts and labor.

If you decide to go with a remanufactured engine, you will be looking at $3200-3500 parts and labor.

what portion is parts and what portion is labor
Expert:  Eric replied 5 years ago.
Hi,

Labor will run $1000-1200, and cost of new engine is $4300-4800, depending on the shop's labor rate and price markup on engine. remanufactured engine runs $2000-2300, again, depending on the shop's markup on parts
