No it's used with 60k miles on it.

Okay, thank you for that information, while you have the motor out for replacement you should also consider replacing all the coolant hoses as well as the drive belt. Another thing that is a good idea would be to replace the water pump.I would also make sure there are no leaking gasket and if so replace them as well.
