I have a base model 2008 automatic OB with 213k. Car is decent shape, no rust, transmission is fine, but engine is blown. Was quoted around $4k to replace with a 79k engine, but not sure I'm willing to pay that much. Not interested in parting out, so thinking about putting on CL. What would be a fair asking price?

What happened to the engine, do you know?

4k for 79k engine installed is a little high , maybe not in more expensive to live areas.

Piston slap that turned into rod knock due to loss of oil. Ran low to none with no warning. Must have burned off as well. Live in the Raleigh NC area.

$1000 +/- a bit depending on what the buyer wants to do with it.
