Honestly I have no idea what the hell that mechanic did to the computer that would have cost 600, that cis injection system is stone simple.

And I can't see how it would cost 700 to install that motor, even if he is charging 70 an hour, it still doesn't take 10 hours to change that motor out.

AND unless you can hear the motor knock like a roofer hammering away from 2 blocks down the raod, just use 20w50 it should get you by untill you can afford to do something about it.

AND what kind of dumb ass calls a running motor worthless, unless your motor is locked up, and a piston laying on the ground it has potental.

I would hate to see some one loose their car like that, I would buy it, however I'm on the east coast.

hmmm

I live in San Jose, and would consider it, but, I have a lot to fix on my own e30 =(

I agree with Starmavin... it's not a completely useless engine.

However, that is quite unfortunate.

Well I'd say it had better be on the worthieness of the engine that you paid them for with the understanding that it was good!
