So I have a 89 Bronco that has sat since 2013. It won’t turn on. The last time it turned on was in 2015. When we stopped using it, it needed a complete engine rebuild. I’m trying to figure out about how much it would cost to get it running again. Any help?

Location, extent of rebuild, just too many factors.

What motor is it? If price is a concern you could do an engine swap for possibly less.

Um a 1998 Bronco??? I am pretty sure those engines are about 3.5 million to repair... you’re going to need a complete forge and tooling set up because it is a prototype rig.

ok seriously I think you meant 1989. You could get it rebuilt for as little as $1200 if you do the disassembly and reassembly your self back to stock, to $25,000 for a complete hot rod engine turbocharged and supercharged.

I’m building a mild over stock 5.0 at the moment. Everything new minus the intake manifolds and exhaust manifolds. I’m looking at just over 5 grand in parts. Machine work is actually only costing about $200-300 depending on what they find with the block. I am also doing all the assembly and disassembly my self. I could do it for half that and still have a decent engine.

Ford didn’t make a Bronco in ’98 my guy. We need more details around what the actual year is and what motor it has.
