Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

how much oil you had to add to it ?

and did it start after oil change ?

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do have a power probe for testing ?

Do you have a test light so we can check for spark ?

Do you have fuel pressure tester to check for fuel ?

Did you scan it with factory scanner or equivalent to retrieve faults codes for vehicle modules ?

Hello. Different expert here. In our shop, we replaced a 2010 Prius engine a month ago, The used engine cost us 2250 dollars, and we charged 900 to install it. The 2250 figure was due to this engine being very low mileage. Prices vary from area to area....and prices vary due to availability. If you have any other questions please feel free to reply. Thanks.
