dad told me to sell it but that aint going to happin i just dont no what to do could i get 22re and put it in there insted of the v6?

06-26-2009, 11:12 AM
I guess it depends on how bad tha damge is? and what condition the rest of the truck is in. If its a sweet rig get a new engine. But your still asking many wuestions whitout posting much info.

what year of truck?
what engine?
is the truck rusty?
do you have pics of the truck?

06-26-2009, 11:28 AM
92 toyota shortbox 3.0 v6 had nooo rust just needs a new drivers fender and i was going to flat bed it cuz the box is so fucked ill get picstures later today

Did you tow it home from stave ?

Did you try to crank it over with the plugs in ?

06-26-2009, 12:48 PM
pull the plugs and crank the motor over by hand. if it dont go you are fucked. if it does crank and not fire, check to see if there is water in the distributor cap.

06-26-2009, 12:57 PM
tryed all that nothing it tuned like a quater crank and then made a loud nosie and stop and nothing willl happin so is fucked yea buddies pulled me out to the road and then dads freind with his tow truck came and got me now the truck is siting in the driveway

06-26-2009, 01:38 PM
i would just get another 3.0 from a wrecker

they are pretty cheap, and while your putting the new on in ya can do the timing belt and water pump as well.

find someone to help you thats done it before

06-26-2009, 02:18 PM

06-26-2009, 02:22 PM
Don't those motors have the cam lock? In an effort to save the motor the hydrolicing sets the cam lock pin. The pin must be set back in order for the engine to turn over again.

06-26-2009, 11:31 PM
Your better off just swapping in another 3.0, those motors are big money to rebuild. Best bet is to pick a motor up go for aorund $500-1000. My buddys been through 3 of them and thats the easyest way to go.

06-27-2009, 09:14 AM
it wouldnt be easyier to do another swap with a motor even no it may coast more like a 305 or somthing what would be really nice is putting a simple 22r in there thats what would be nice but if i have to ill swap it with another 3.0

dirka dave
06-27-2009, 10:19 AM
If you have the cash, a vortec is a fairly good swap.

06-27-2009, 10:25 AM
I found it was cheaper to swap a fuel injected 302 into my 4Runner, instead of rebuilding the stock V-6. A 22RE swap would be fairly simple, but engine mounts, tranny mounts, and driveshafts are all different. Not to mention engine wiring harness and computer. ;)

06-27-2009, 11:01 AM
with the 302 do i have to change the engine mounts and stuff and change all the wiring?

06-27-2009, 11:18 AM
im going to have to do somthing quick dads getting mad its in the driveway not running he tells me to get rid of the thing but i told him no so we will see what happens

06-28-2009, 01:28 PM
Normally, i'd have some helpful insite.
However, since this is a toy 3.slow, then just put it in a boat and tie a rope to it, next time you set anchor, throw it overboard. When your done, just cut the rope.
