Q: Cost of an engine swap.

asked by on

I want to buy a new engine for my truck. I am wondering how much it would cost to take out the old engine and replace it with the new one.

Replacing an engine does require some extensive work that can take some time. The cost will vary by shop as each shop has a different labor rate per hour. If you know what the labor rate of a shop is you can go with the average labor time of 8 hours to replace the engine in your truck to get close to the cost estimate.
