mechanic is going to charge me 950 to fix it. is it worth it?
not a bit.
New engine will cost more. Junkyard engine may cost less, but who knows if you want to chance that.
Is the vehicle worth $900?
im charging 2500 to replace blown head gaskets on the same truck right now
more than 900. i don't need it to run forever just for a few more months until I can afford a new car
Fuck it, run it till it blows up.
4 cyl or 6 cyl?
If it's a 4cyl do it yourself but a 6cyl is another story. Those heads are very tempermental so unless he has a good bit of experience with the 3.0 I wouldn't trust him.
I'd swap in a 3.4 though because the 3.Slow is called that for a reason. It sucks. Also, the 3.4 will easily get the 250+k if the oil is changed semi regularly and 300K is not out of the question.
Drop in a supercharged 3.4 and do a solid axle swap
He's not gonna be doing all that if he's just driving it for a few months.
