Bad cylinder on an 06 4 cyl. Colorado. Is it worth fixing? Buying a used eng. Or on 2006 Chevrolet Colorado

What is the most cost effective solution having a 4 cyl colorado. rebuild buying a new Engine or dumping a truck with 90k on it that's only worth around 4-5 grand. The #2 cyl is bad and the labor alone may not be worth it.

your repairs are going to be pretty close what you were quoted at for truck. i think its about $2000.00 to bore out and re-sleeve the cylinder. to buy rebuilt engine, maybe $2500.00 -$3000.00. to buy used maybe $1500.00 as is with no warranty. can not say for sure until you open it up and find out how bad the damage is.

First off, on your 2006 Colorado, why are you suggesting that it has a bad cylinder? Do you have a P0302 cylinder #2 missfire code? Simply you could need spark plugs and/or a coil for cylinder #2. Have you had a professional diagnose it?
