          It depends on what went wrong. If mechanics think they need to open up the engine, then they must believe the problem is with such major components as the crankshaft, pistons, or bearings. They will likely want to pull the engine out of the car to do this, which means disconnecting a whole gaggle of other parts just to prepare for this. Many hours at $60-75 an hour equals big costs, sorry to say.

          A crankshaft/piston problem would likely be indicated by a knocking sound eminating from the inside of the engine. Parts are machined to fit together with very close tolerances and must be lubricated by a constant flow of oil. Eventually, the metal-to-metal surfaces grind away until there are slack spaces between them. The knocking sound occures whenever the parts move from one side of their slack space to the other with a loud slam - each time the crank turns around. This process is inevitable in all engines - but it could be delayed for hundreds of thousands of miles in a well-designed engine driven gently and cared for meticulously. An abused and neglicted engine will fail much earlier. If the engine runs out of oil, it will happen almost immediately as parts seize together and are ripped back apart with a shower of metal shavings inside the engine.

              Sorry to hear bout your ride Emmy....i'm suprised it's lasted this long!! A 95 FORD WAGON! That's pretty damn good.....i had a 96 taurus & that thing died on me about 2 years ago, they told me it would cost more to repair it than the car was actually worth so i had to get rid of it......Good luck with whatever happens!

                    It seems that all the 'what are you reading now' threads have died and I decided to make my own thread for books.

                    Post what you're currently reading, ask for recommendations or give recommendations, post what books you got most recently and anything else book related.
