    Good day all, I need some expert advice on how to proceed after learning that my Prado engine has been damaged. The vehicle is with a Toyota dealer in Pretoria and I will find out the full extent of the damage today, but the indications are for an engine overhaul. It has automatic transmission.

    The way I see it is that I have two options:

    1. repair the engine that's in the vehicle.

    2. replace the engine.

    My problem with option 1 is that the Kzte engine is a 4 cylinder and (I think) not big enough for pulling a boat trailer (recently acquired). I would like a 6 cyl engine. So the option then is to repair and trade the vehicle in on another. I like the Prado and will buy one again, also my Prado is just right for me, apart from the engine.

    I am contemplating having a V6 diesel engine fitted to replace the current engine. Now the advice please?

    Is this feasible?
    What engine is suitable?
    What is the estimated cost?
    Would a petrol engine be a better option?
