    Anybody have an idea on what it may cost to replace a 6.2l on a 2014 Silverado?

    Are you wanting labor price? A rebuild? A salvage motor or crate motor? Need more info.

    Depending on what you are wanting your best bet may be to rebuild that one. What happened?

    I decided against it so far, given the cost, but then your truck is 10y newer than mine, so it might be worth the expense.

    They are $5000ish used, figure around $800-1000 to have it replaced by an inexpensive shop. I would look into the rebuild option.

    Ok, my 20 year old son went and bought this pickup a month ago against my better judgement. But he's out on his own and making his own way. So it ran good when he left the lot but about a week ago it started missing. The computer said misfire on cylinder 6. So we replaced the plug, wire and then the coil pack and finally the fuel injector. Still missing. So a compression check showed 20 psi on that cylinder. He took it back to the dealership and they said it needs a new engine because of the mileage. It has 100 thousand miles on it. They're saying 9000 to do it. Which may be fair but I don't have anything to judge it by

    Well they found a new one with a hundred thousand miles warranty for 5000. And labor is four thousand. It's the labor I'm really wondering about

    Find out WHY its got low compression on that cylinder. If the bore isnt hosed you may be able to drop in a new piston assy and it be good enough (assuming it popped a ring land or something).

    Could be lots of stuff though, bent or dropped valve, etc. Odds of it needing a whole motor are fairly slim I'd think.

    I just had quoted (last week) a new 5.0 V8 engine for a 2013 F150. It was roughly $10K for engine and install. This would have come with a 3 yr 100K mile warranty. I decided to go a different route.
