engine is in touble
well, my car was making a noise in the engine for a few days, and after removing the oil pan, i discovered that i had spun a bearing on either the 4th or 3rd piston (can't remember which one), which scratched my crank...so either, i get a new crank and new connecting rod, take the motor out and all apart and rebuild it, or get a new motor for somewhere between $1500 and $2000. everyone i've told was surprised that a 3800 spun a bearing...i'm rather shocked myself...any input on which option is better?
