Yep.. he should spend big money for a new motor? No way moto.. At best I'd suggest a Jasper engine from Napa.
Personally I'd put in a used motor from a junkyard with a warranty.
The car isn't worth enough money to spend on a factory reman, that'* simply ridiculous to suggest unless you are going to offer up your employee discount.
At the current time I would suggest continuing with the viscosity you are currently using.
