    Blown engine - help with finding engines/anyone interested in a parts car.

    My sister in law was driving down the road, reportedly saw the oil light flicker and then pop something flew through the oil pan and she spilled all of her oil onto interstate 64.

    2008 sx4 hatch. Naturally aspirated.

    Got the car home. How difficult is it to find a new engine and is the R&R through the top or bottom?

    Debating if someone on here wants this vehicle for a decent price as a parts car. New tires and brakes, transmission/awd work great.

    Maybe. If the price is right and its in good shape and such. I drove to Springfield Missouri for a hood for my SX4 a couple months ago. Had I known that the junk yard car was nice and complete and only needed a $250 transmission, I would've brought a dolly with me.
