    I have 1994 Tacoma v6. It’s been in family since 1995. My son driving it and it stoped running been parked in driveway ever since dealing with family medical issues. I recently had towed to get estimates on repair. From recommended former toyota mech. Said he got it started and then started spewing oil and said rod had shot thru engine He said he can’t find any engines since v6 is more rare. I think he said he might have line on one that’s 5000$. He offered to buy for 1400$. It has some rust by exhaust and left rear fender well. Has dent in front quarter panel left side. I’m not mechanic but love this truck. Does 1400 sound like a fair deal.

    $5000 for a used or rebuilt motor seems pretty steep to me. I'd do some research on my own. It sounds wierd that it thru a rod after he got it running, not the original cause if it not running. Sounds fishy to me, jus sayin.
