If it was mine I would stick in a used engine then get rid of it. on your next vehicle service it properly and you won't have that kind of trouble.

Yep proper servicing is always a must. I would replace the engine or sell it for parts Make sure you get all the same codes and that you don't go higher then a 2006 try and stay same year and engine modal if you can its less work.
