I have a Toyota Z-ace. the engine has serious ring wear and it is spewing smoke.
Mechanics are quoting me the price of the van to fix the problem. ie 40 000 nt or thereabouts.
I have tried to explain to them that a second hand engine will be cheaper than all the work. they say that it is illegal to put another motor in your car.
Is this for real??? :loco: I cannot believe that you can’t change engines. Anyone have experience of this? I’vedone it in the past in the western world, it is a rigmarole, getting clearances etc. but it can be done and it is a hell of a lot cheaper than replacing rings, valve seals etc.
