Labor to replace the engine can run anywhere from 12 hours to 9 hours all depending on what needs swapped over from one engine to the next.A rebuilt engine can run around $4100 from a dealer.You can locate rebuilds or used engines at this web link below.They can ship it to you or your shop of choosing in most all cases for a fraction of the cost of a rebuilt through a dealer.

Unfortunately we cannot work on your model ourselves all we can do is provide help here.The link below can replace this engine for you in your area.
