Toyota Engines from Low Mileage Engines
If you need to replace your Toyota engine, we're glad you've found us. There are many suppliers of used engines, but we strive to be the best. We do this by providing a free CARFAX to verify the mileage on every US domestic market engine we sell, and extensively machine testing every Japanese Market engine we sell. Our warranty is industry leading, and our service is unparalleled.
As our name suggests, we specialize in low mileage engines. When you purchase a used Toyota engine with low miles, you're getting a product comparable to a remanufactured Toyota engine at a similar price.
In addition to used engines, we offer brand new (not rebuilt - brand new!) 22R (R, RE, REC), 2RZ-FE, and 3RZ-FE engines.
Finding your used Toyota Engine
The best way to get a quote from us is to call during business hours. Our phone number is 901-266-9996. If you would like us to call you back, you can fill out an engine request.
Please note that we handle most Toyota engines 1995 or newer (with some older model engines available). This directory is not a complete list of engines we sell. If you need an engine of any make or model, please click here to fill our an engine request, or call us at 800-709-9233.
Toyota quality is unmatched even to this day, and Toyotas keep their value very well. It isn't uncommon to see dealerships selling a used '99 Camry with 180,000 miles on it for $6,000.00. Do the numbers - replacing the engine in your Toyota can save you a lot of money compared to purchasing a replacement vehicle, and buying a used engine can save you even more money.
With the sheer number of Toyota's on the road and the number of miles drivers can put on a Toyota, we do sell many used engines for Toyotas. Our biggest selling engines are for the Toyota Camry and the Toyota Tacoma. We also sell many Toyota Celica and Toyota Corolla engines. No matter what Toyota engine you need, we can help you. Please feel free to call us at 901-266-9996 for a fast, free, no obligation quote on the Toyota used engine that you need.
When you buy from Low Mileage Engines, you're maximizing your value. All of our engines are of the highest quality. We provide a free CARFAX on engines originally from the United States to verify all mileage, and the best standard warranty on used engines in the industry. Whether you're a dealership, private shop, or at home mechanic, we can save you money while delivering an engine that we believe will far outlast our warranty.
In the early 1930s, inventor Sakichi Toyoda used profits from his Toyoda Automatic Loom company to found Toyota Motors with the blessing and partial funding of the Japanese government, which felt that producing cars domestically would reduce costs, create jobs, and build an independent Japan. (Reasons for the name change aren’t clear, although it may have been because “Toyota” is easier to write in Japanese characters than “Toyoda.”) Under Sakichi’s son Kiichiro, Toyota produced its first engine in 1934 and its first vehicles (one car, one truck) in 1935. While two-cylinder engines had been considered, the Type A Toyota engine ended up being a copy of Chevy’s 65-horsepower straight-six engine. In 1937 Toyota motors became an independent company. Its initial success lay in building trucks. These early trucks had engines so similar to Chevy’s overhead valve V6 that during the war, GI’s used Chevy parts to repair captured Toyotas.
The first popular Toyota car was the Toyopet, with a paltry-seeming 27-horsepower engine. The car sold well, as it was meant to be cheap and could handle Japan’s postwar roads; eventually it sported a 55-horsepower engine. The first Land Cruiser appeared around 1955, the year Toyota produced its first luxury model, the Crown, which had a four-cylinder, 1.5-liter engine.
In 1958, Toyota began selling cars in the US, starting with the Toyopet and the Land Cruiser. They sold poorly, and the Toyopet was withdrawn so it could be redesigned for the US market. The results was 1964’s Corona P20, with a 90-horsepower engine (aka the Tiara), and the 1-liter engine Corona. The Corona’s automatic transmission, factory air options and –horsepower engine made it popular, and by 1971 Toyota’s sales in the US were quite robust.
In 1967, the semi-luxury Crown became available in the US as a sedan or wagon. One thing that made the Crown so special was its engine, a 137 cubic inch in-line six-cylinder engine delivering 115 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 127 foot-pounds of torque at 3,600 rpm. This engine had more horsepower than the biggest Plymouth slant-six but less than the smallest American V8.
Rare but remarkable was the 2000GT, a speed and endurance record setter with its 150-horsepower dual overhead cam six-cylinder engine.
In 1969, the Corolla was introduced to the US (it had been available in Japan since 1967). It had a straight-four, 1100 cc pushrod engine. Current (6th-generation) Corollas are offered in five trim levels. The XRS has a 2.4-liter engine, the 2AZ-FE I4, which is good for 158 hp and 162 foot-pounds of torque; others currently feature the 1.8-liter 2ZR-FE four-cylinder engine with 132 horsepower (98 kW) and 128 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are ULEV certified.
Toyota’s luxury cars, the Cressida and Crown, were poor sellers. Given the sagging luxury market, the 1980s were a good time for Toyota to create a true luxury brand, and the first Lexus, the LS400, appeared in 1989 with a 4-liter V8 engine. 1991’s SC 400 had the same engine; 1992’s ES300 had a 3-liter, 185-hp V6. The Lexus 1997 offered Toyota’s first engine with variable valve timing. In 2000, the new Lexus 430 got a new engine, a V84.3-liter double overhead-cam V8 engine that produced 290 horsepower at 5,600 RPM and 320 foot-pounds of torque at 3,400 RPM. Lexus SUVs appeared in 1996 the first being the LX50 and containing a 4.5 liter, twin-cam, four-valve inline-6 engine which produced 212 horsepower and 275 foot-pounds of torque. Current LXs contain the ULEV-II certified 5.7 L 3UR-FE V8 engine good for 383 horsepower and 403 foot-pounds of torque. Other Lexus SUVs currently available include the IS,RX and ES.
Toyota has led the way in producing hybrids. Its first was 2005’s Lexus RX400h, featuring a hybrid synergy drive with electronically controlled continuously variable transmission which allows the car to run on the electric engine only. Other recent Toyota developments are the F-marque, racy versions of Lexus performance models, and the Scion.
