So while installing my new sway bar link, SS Brake lines, an just before I put on my eBay headers...

My engine starts knocking, an it's a rod.
Now I need to know where to find a 5SFE that will WORK, an has not a crapload of miles...

Can anyone assist me?
I've checked EBay an couldn't find much...
What's a good price range for these motors?
I was thinking about Jdm for warranties just in case you know?
But I want something refurbished preferably.

Any suggestions?

Remans can be had for $1500-$2000, anything "reman" under $1500 is just a rebuild with some new seals and a decked head/block (usually).

I'm with 93celicaconv with car-part.com though if you don't want to shell out $2000 for a new engine.

You cannot obtain a 5SFE from Japan, as Toyota did not use it there.

I've been looking all over the site I've emailed 2 people with the engines I need really low like Mid 600s so that's very cheap.

for that price and low miles your best bet would be a pick a part

Keep in mind that the 5S-FE doesn't have to come from a Celica. I ran a Camry engine in mine and only had to swap a couple of things like upper timing cover to install it.

To run a camrys you have to extend your pipe and change a few things and your best bet is car-part but even then good luck fraught will kill you it'll make that 500$ motor into 700-1000 depending on where you live

I have to ship motors all the time at work

Also any gen will work just have to change a lot more

^^^I have no idea what that means.

Buy a Camry longblock, strip it down until its just the engine, swap over all your manifolds, sensors and accessories and drop it in.

It's no harder than that. Plus, 5s motors are so common that I would just walk into a self pull and pay a few hundred for one. Junkyards are much easier to deal with in cash, in person.

Over the phone they can say what they want as far as pricing. Just remember that cash is king.

I'm going to make a couple assumptions for interpretation.

Fraught was supposed to be freight, as in shipping costs. Related etymology (fraught = filled with) but distinct meanings.

And the exhaust modification refers to the need to accommodate the balance shafts attached to 5SFEs used in Camrys. Those are removable, of course, and you can then use the Celica oil pan.

Go to the parts for sale section of this site and look up the tread by smilly-0-so. He has what you want.

I just finished the project you are about to start. I found a pretty good motor out of a '98 Camry for 500, motor had about 120,000 on it though. I just went to Craigslist and typed in 5SFE motor in the parts section. That might be your best bet to find one local to you. I had to make a few modifications to get the new motor in, but nothing terrible.
