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.
