My Town and Country has been diagnosed as having a lower engine lifter issue. Loud clicking when engine is at a higer RPM. Repair recommended is a NEW ENGINE. The bid is $3600 to install a used engine, including parts. Does this sound reasonable.

3.8L V6 I believe. And out of warranty, so I must pay for repair. Looks like lower engine knocking, rod bearing. They want to replace with a used engine, $2000, plus labor. All in $3650 . Sound reasonable?

The labor is about 20 hrs times there shop labor rate. The engine will depend on how many miles is on it what the warranty is where there getting it from etc. Also the other parts hoses etc will depend on mark up etc. Giving a engine estimate there are a lot of variables I would imagine it would cost more to do in the san diego area. So I could see it costing that much when its all said an done.I would call around atleast three places and find out the miles on the engine and the warranty on the engine.
