Replacement Engine

My dad and I are going to have my son's engine replaced. It is shot. We did it before with my car...
does anyone have any ideas where to look for an engine. I see Ebay has them. I am located in SoCal.

Wrangler X 2010 automatic 3.8L V6

Thanks for any suggestions.

Local salvage yards or carparts.com if looking for used.
Find a Jasper retailer if looking for rebuilt. They're nationwide and stand behind their stuff.
Price shop local dealerships if looking for new or factory reman.

You can also check PowertrainDirect. They sell refurbished engines and sold one to a friend of mine.

Curious, what are the symptoms of your son's engine? From abuse, high miles, oil burner/leaker, etc? Your 2010 is well past the first and second year issues the 3.8 had.

yea that issue followed along the years on the 3.8. that year less but not unheard off. heck the max spec before its an issue new and through its warranty is 1qt every 1k so say it only ONLY? burns .5 per 1k its in design spec. seems a rather loose standard. for some people they basically changed the oil during each 5-8k. heck just toss on filter...........owners of these just had to remember, "fill the oil", check the gas. it maybe the "industry standard". but its scrap.....

Yes, it's scrap.
It was lent out and I guess not taken care of.

And it does make a difference.

Check out LKQ. Dismantlers with operations all over the USA. I just looked, they have five pages of 3.8L's available, plus they also sell remanufactiured engines.

A lot of reman is not done to original specs... its almost all "builders" parts now - over/under so all tooling becomes more standard.

When an engine comes into a rebuild line they mike everything - for example the cylinders mike out to .003 taper and .0005 out of round - which is in range for usability. it will get hone (and end up at about .002 taper and .0003 out of round) and re-ring (if the pistons are super clean) or new piston/ring set. So its starts its "fresh" life already half way through the range of tolerance.

On a reman - the block and heads are magna flux (or pressure tested) and ALL machine points re machined. The bores get punched .015 or .030 over (depending on condition) for less than .001 taper and less than .0002 out of round - new pistons, rings, rods, crank turned to .010 new bearings, cam bores honed or cut oversize. The heads get all new valves with stems at .015 over so they just punch and hone the guides, valve head at .030 over puts the seats back in service with the seat face .015 further out from last wear spots. So its not truly OEm - but it IS standard to the reman blueprint tolerances which are OEM...

Basically the reman is a better deal as the money that would be spent on inspection and measuring goes to new parts rather than time labor in testing and inspecting (and using parts at the outer limit but still within tolerance), and the machining is done with less setup time - standardizing a process.

good info jwm, you know your stuff.
I am looking for the better "deal" ... don't want to be spending too much.. just want to get it running.

At the same time, my 2000 is having problems.. now I have two to contend with it.
