Wnat To Do, Oh What To Do?

They say I need a new engine in my 1994 D90. They say I can get a used, inspected/repaired engine (big bucks) or a new engine (even bigger bucks). Or maybe I should just scrap it and buy a YUGO. I need some input as what are my options. Thank you in advance for your help.

Who is they, what's the issue with the motor, and what's big bucks? There's good people in CO that can address your issues (Pike's Peak, JC Rover, etc.) at reasonable costs.

Honestly, what part of needing a motor for a 14 year old truck surprises you?

Talked to him last night. He's out in CO someplace. Just have him stop by and wave his magic wand over the truck.

Kevin- In my experience it's usually the bill.

unless its been severely overheated, its highly unlikely that you neww a "new motor"..

top end, head skim and crank bearings maybe, but a whole new engine, probably not.

good luck

Slipped liners aren't incredibly uncommon though...
