What is the best website or the best dealer for stock replacement 1995 5.8 motors. I checked with autozone, which is where I work, and oreilly's. I am jsut not too sure about parts house engines. Does anyone know if they are good or of a dealer of stock engines or long blocks that is reputable.

I'm about 4 months in on a Jasper long block replacement for my '89... So far, so good.. Only problem I had was after my first oil change at 500 miles I got a bad oil leak. I took it back to shop and found it was leaking from the sending unit. Not sure why it leaked, but shop replaced it for me and only cost me $40. Jasper warranties engine pretty well, but doesn't warranty labor, costs extra for that warranty.

You know a sending unit is only like $20.00 or less and maybe 5mins of work?


for the OP,

things to think about;

If you get a crate engine, what warranty do you expect?
(most don't cover mechanic labor charges)

do you have a garage or are you doing it at some other shop?

what's wrong with your current engine? and why would you not reuse your current heads, manfiolds and others items?


Both have PRO & CONs, and one would cost more for obvious reasons. If you don't have the time and tools, a drop in crate engine would be the way to go. If you want to save a few dollars, have mechanic skills,time & tools, then a refresh longblock would be very attractive.

A certified engine builder with a nice warranty that provides a crate engine, where all you have todo is stick it back in the enginer bay and add oil, looks very attractive when your looking at another car payment.

I would price both out and look at the difference, also don't overlook a certified shortblock and the price of redoing your heads.

give any thought to rebuilding what you have?
Though you didn't say what was wrong with it.

I would really like to hear experiences with the parts house engines, Autozone, advanced, etc.

They usually have a great warranty. I'm just curious how often warranties are denied.


The nice thing about the A/Z engines, you can install them yourself.....Others you have to have a certified Mech or certified installer install them.

Yes I could have prob replaced myself, but had issues..
1) no time to deal with it, too much family life going on at the time.
2) Was leaking oil pretty bad. From location of all the oil I saw on front of engine and hoses + amount, I thought Main Front Seal was bad.
3) If trouble was major issue such as seals, I wanted the installer to fix it so would have proof for warranty claims if needed..

My last 302 was a RECON brand engine from Advance Autoparts.
I had no complaints with it.
