i am just pulled a 185k oem 2zz-ge out of my 2001 celica gts due to a really low compression (50psi) in #1 cylnder as diagnosed by local toyota dealer. i am wondering if there is any way to turn the old engine into cash or trade. thx.
Probably not cash or trade, you could have some luck but you could also use it as a core charge turnin - depending where you purchase a replacement motor. Try looking around online for a replacement motor. Some shops will require a core charge, if they don't then you could certainly sell it for a small profit.
