After replacing head gaskets for the 3rd time(kept overheating) in the
last 10,000 miles, I gave up and let the Trooper sit for the last 2
years. I had a problem with a clogged radiator(clogged with mud outside
possibly from the front end being in flood water) and one of the
cylinders was not working properly. I would like to get it back up and
running and was wondering what all would need replacing and serviced
after sitting that long.
The big thing is should I get a remanufactured motor or new. The bodys
in great shape and has a newer tranny, clutch, fuel injectors, fuel
pump, and fan clutch, some sensors, plugs,wires, etc.
If I go to a motor exchange shop which I have one about 5 miles from
where I live what should I expect to get. The bare motor or all the
bells and whistles. With all of the newer parts on my engine I'm not
really sure which was is the most cost effective.
One more question. Is there any other motors (not Isuzu) I could put in.
Appreciate answers to any or all questions in advance.
