i have a 07 toyota camry that ran hot and shut off. the water pump was cracked so i replaced that along with a thermostat. i was told that the block was cracked so i had someone to flush and seal with block seal. the pistons on the motor were wet with water when tried to crack. the battery went dead i have not tried to crank it since. Should i go ahead and invest in a engine or would head gaskets or anything else would be an option before spending 1700.00 for another engine?
Personally, I would go ahead and get a replacement engine. Why keep throwing money at an engine that is most likely too far gone? Every band-aid attempt to fix it will just cause more problems in the long run. Bite the bullet now and fix it right the first time.
thanks mark this is the most precise ANSWER anyone has given me so far.. thanks a lot
Your engine is toast and cannot be fixed.
Yep ... FOR is right ,,, don't throw good money after bad, >> If someone tells you it can be fixed ,,, tell them that mechanics can cure the sick but not raise the dead
