    This is for Onslow and Jacksonville NC. Four years ago I had a 2014 Ford Fusion rebuild done for $4321 dollars and the engine is still going strong today with not a single problem.

    At the time of this work being done, the header gasket was bad and the pistons and rings shot.

    At the time, the place I had the work done was the only place in Onslow, and I understand the machining shop is no longer in business.

    The cost varies greatly for newer models, and domestic versus foreign manufactured vehicles.
