All,
My 1991 XJ is at the shop now. They called to say that it's compression numbers are low and there is visible signs of the head leaking.

So...

Can anyone tell me about how much a rebuild would cost including R&R?

Should I part it out or just have it towed to the wrecking yard?

Vehicle is a 210k mile 4.0 auto.

TIA

rings bearings and gasket kit should be around 400 $ or so . if thats all thats wrong with it , cam sits around 200$ you could also have to have the head plained and the valves replaced springs lifters etc . what cylinders had low compression the 1st usually does because of the inferior design of putting a water pump to close to the cylinder and over cooling it resulting in premature wear (most inline engines have this problem)

if they all have low compression but are within 15 psi of one another then just keep running it , it will still go for some time . if they have varrying compression eg 100 on no1 and 145 on no3 then its pooched

you could probobly buy a engine from a wrecker for 800$

do you want some one to rebuild your engine or do it yourself . for some one else to do it your probably looking at like 2000 $+ you do probably around 500-600$

you could always sell it .
