Without knowing how bad the damage is who can say? If the pistons are bad you should get a new engine or just scrap the car and get a new one. How about a photo?

When you post a reply there is a Add photo button to the lower left of the box where you type your reply. I would suggest that you have a good mechanic evaluate your engine. How many miles on it?

112.000 miles

Is the car worth spending anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 on it knowing it has fairly high miles? You could install a used engine in it but it will still cost somewhere in the price range I gave you. A rebuilt engine installed would likely be higher.

you right i found one in the junk yard 2006 with 120,000 miles for 400.$ i was just making sure before i made my disistion thank you for your time
