The great summer car saga

I talked to the mechanic this morning. Really nice guy for someone who makes a living screwing people on labor charges. He agreed that a new engine would be a cheaper way to go and he said he'd do the work as long as I didn't expect him to warrantee the engine itself since he would not be obtaining it. I can get a used engine with a 24 month warantee for $600. That will drop the total bill down to $1300 from $2200. I still have to give up the new DSLR purchase but it's more doable. Looks like I'll be using my vacation days to go down to the farm and fish. That's all I'll be able to afford this year. The bank of Dad would probably help but I really, really don't want to go there.

I'm glad you have found a cheaper way to get your car fixed.
