I have a 2009 v6 manual and it’s not starting. I tried to start it one day and it was rattling pretty bad then it shut off, tried to start it again and I heard one click. The guy who towed it said it was internal, and it wasn’t the starter clicking. I have relatively low knowledge on engines but I have some. It doesn’t crank or turn over. The transmission is going too, the synchros are out and getting it into first and second is very difficult. Essentially I’m stumped on what to do keeping the costs low. I have always wanted a 4.6, more than a 5.0. I’m in love with this car, I bought it with 160k on it and drove it for about 2000 miles. I could tell the car was beat on. I would like to keep the car and repair it but I would also like to buy a 4.6. However cars right now are very expensive and I’m having trouble finding a GT with 100k or less for around 12000. so my options are Buy a used 4.0 engine and drop it in, rebuild the motor I have which also has timing chain issues, sell it and buy another 4.0 or upgrade to a 4.6, or just scrap the whole thing and get another car. Again, I am in love with the 05-09 mustangs so I am passionate about keeping it. If I buy a used engine, where should I buy one? LKQ? eBay? I would like to keep the costs low so cost friendly options are appreciated. I read somewhere that swapping it to a 4.6 isn’t worth it and I should just buy a 4.6 instead since I would need a new transmission driveshaft and rear end plus more I don’t know about. I’ve seen I can get 4.0s for pretty cheep and the transmissions are cheep too. And if I buy a used engine from a scrap yard am I able to just drop it in? Should I find a low mileage one or should I get a high mileage one and rebuild it? Thanks in advance for the answers.
