2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser - cost to repair thrown rod?

How much will it cost to fix Throwing a rod issue due to running the car with out oil on a 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser GT 2 4L V6

$2100-$4000 for a rebuilt engine. Then labor to install.

This is one of those all most impossible to answer questions . Your location , what type of shop you use , do you want to put a used engine or rebuilt or a completely new engine in. Talk to friends , co-workers and relatives to find a good shop and let them give you options.

I’d say… more than the car is worth. It is a 14 year old PT Cruiser. Not worth he cost of a used engine, let alone a remanufactured one.
