Yea Englishtown got shut down sadly. I've been told mixed things, one side says you need to use the recommended oil weight from the manufacturer otherwise you'll break something. On the other hand It does make sense that these are old engines and a heavier weight is required as things wear down. My engine is non-VVTi so oil weight shouldn't matter as much.Ooof. Meant Englishtown, but apparently it got shutdown. Looks like Atco is still alive.
B.S. There's no reason that, on a rebuilt engine, "the problem will arise again later on".A rebuild is exactly what I want to do but I was told it's not realistic because the problem will arise again later on.
Which shop is Don in? I see one in Ohio and two in NJ? Do you have contact info for him?B.S. There's no reason that, on a rebuilt engine, "the problem will arise again later on".
Drain the oil. If it looks like Tinkerbell has been flying around in there, then pull the motor and send it to Don @ Accelerated Performance for a rebuild. You will use thicker oil in the rebuilt motor because they will build it with larger clearances than stock.
i dont know who told you that but i would stop taking their advice.A rebuild is exactly what I want to do but I was told it's not realistic because the problem will arise again later on.
I took such good care of my engine, this car is a member of my family I don't want to lose any part of it.
I'm in Central Jersey but I don't know anyone here except Gonzy. I'd like to get this rebuilt at the best machine shop I can get it towed to. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I thought so but I'm not an expert. I do know the 2JZ is one of the strongest blocks around.i dont know who told you that but i would stop taking their advice.
a GOOD rebuild will make it as good as new.

Unfortunately I don't have the tools, equipment or knowledge to remove the motor, at least not without causing more damage. I'd have to ship the whole car.Ohio. https://acceleratedperformance.com/
You're about the same distance from him as I am. He arranged the logistics of having a freight company come by to pick up my pallet (block and head separated)...it was less than $200 to ship it to him.
There's also Freed Engineering in MD...I've heard good things, but don't have any direct experience with them. Ask around here...lots of Supras have been serviced there.
