Hi Guys,
This is my first post on here.  One of the members suggested I ask around.
My daughter has a 2000 TJ and I believe she blew the motor this weekend.  She was driving to work and something went bang.  We had it towed to the house and I checked the compression and the only cylinder that had any was cylinder 1.  Im thinking she may have snapped the crank.  I may pull the oil pan off and see what I can see.  But in the meantime, I thought I would ask around.  Anyone know where to pick up a rebuilt and reasonably priced 2.5l engine?  What should I be paying?  I live in High River.  Anyone local that would be recommended to install?

Thanks for the help!

They are hard to find. Im doing one in an 02 right now. I can check the crank in this one coming out for you. See if its worthy or not. Ill have it out this week.

I pulled the oil drain plug and got blasted with coolant.  So the block is toast.  There is no rebuild.  I have a bunch of people looking for either a rebuilt or used motor right now,  There is one out in Vancouver for 2400 with 3 year 60k warranty, or a used one out in Onterrible for 1600, no warranty.  Kinda hoping for something a little cheaper and more local. 
Im still trying to weigh if its worth doing or sell the jeep as is and find another.

4L's are fairly easy to find... Thought about doing an upgrade?

4L is actually more of a pain to swap in than a V8 would be. According to fourwheeler.com I think it was. (You have to engineer new motor mounts, completely different engine wiring harness and computer, etc..)
