Default 93 Pajero 6G72 engine advise

Hi

Im a noob in regards to Pajero ownership and need some advise. I was given a 93 Pajero and had all these plans for the old girl, it has done 300,000 so I new I was possibly in for a bit of trouble but having known the owner I new he had at least serviced the car every 5000km, it has an oil leak and i was told oil would sit on top of the pistons and when ever it had been sitting there for a couple of hours every time I started it I would get a burnt oil smell and it was a bit smokie. It ran ok for about 3 months, the first thing that happened was a blown radiator due to the thermostat getting stuck, so a $30 job turned into a $600 job. At the same time I had the mechanic go over the car as I needed to get a RWC to change the reg over from NSW to VIC. He couldnt find the oil leak at the time and gave me something to try and stop the engine smoking as I didnt have enough funds after paying for the radiator. A side from the consistent oil leak it ran fine for about 2 months, it then started to run a little rough. Within 2 days of that the engine was stuffed, it just started losing power and the engine was vibrating a lot and just sounded like a clunking metal on metal sound. It was towed to the mechanics and he just started it and the engine was shaking violently and said try and find another one to swap in to it, but before I do anything I just wanted some advise. I cannot do the work myself, so I have about $5000 to get the engine fixed, RWC and registration. Is it worth while getting the engine rebuilt if so what about the transmission are they fairly reliable? I have been qouted in between $2500-$3500 to have the enginge rebuilt but this doesnt include the install, so Im not sure gow much the install would cost. I have been reading about the magna engines, but I would still have to get someone to do the work so not sure how much this would cost either and I have been struggling to find a pajero engine in vic to swap, I thought about a jap import, but Im worried if I get an engine to swap is being back in the same situation I am now, any advise or experiences would be great.

Cheers

that's very pricey. My rebuilt cost me about $2000 and I didn't skimp on anything. I did do alot of work myself though.

Default 93 pajero 6G72 engine advise

After reading how you are fixed, I would be looking for another truck, seeing that you cant do any of the work thats needed to get yourself out of the smelly brown stuff, but if you have any better idea's than there you go.

Its a shame you do not live near me or i near you i would have helped you to do a megna conversion as i have found this to be a nice budget fix and would do it again myself.
unfortunatly im moving to warrnambool in vic so even further away but if there are any people on here from warrnambool on here would be nice to catch up.

personally i wouldnt waste any more money on it, look at the value off the car $$$, with what you need to spend on it just to get the motor running and any other repairs,, seeing as you arent handy with car repairs, which isnt ment to be a put you down,.
invest that money you would have spent on repairs 5,000. on a deposit on either a latter 4 wd if needed, or a new small car.... WHAT im getting at if you are paying say $60.00 per hour for some one too fix this pajero durring your time with the car, its going to a big dollar investment, on a car that you will never get any apprecaited value

weve all been there,, do you write off now all costs and get rid off it, or pump more$$$ into it, your deccission
