    So, I just picked up a 96 Toyota Avalon that I believe has a spun bearing. It had knocking noise on first startup and oil light keeps coming on after a couple minutes of driving even though there's oil in there(sometimes it'll flicker); which I assume is oil pressure issue.

    Anyways, I want to just replace the engine instead of tearing into it. I am having trouble sourcing another Avalon engine(has the 3l V6), so does anyone know what other motors will drop it just fine?

    1 or 2JZGTE? I'm sure it would fit with enough elbow grease.

    I'm looking for another V6 that would drop in. A 2JZ would require more than just oil grease; the Avalon is FWD.

    Elbow grease and oil grease are different concepts. But yea, it was really meant to be a joke.

    Sleepy ftl.


    Shit, that's way much more than I want to spend. If that's the median price of the longblocks, I'll probably just part the car out.
