Well according to my local shop I am going to need a new engine anyway. At first I thought that he was trying to get over on me, but then I got home and you recommended the same thing so unfortunately it might be time to say goodbye to my Bonne. He said all my bearing were shot and I have a bent rod. I'm not sure how he diagnosed this from the outside, either way I kno it cost a whole lot to dig down and fix it. . . . .so I might just have to make that hard decision!
