Engine died on 2005 Acura TL

There was a cranking noise coming from the engine and it died when I was taking it to the dealer. The dealer said the motor might be bad and they are asking for a lot of money to replace it. Did any one else had similar problem? Any recalls?

The motor might be bad? Try another dealer, changing the engine on a guess? I don't see any recalls on that, just fuel pump, fuel pump relay, power steering hose leak, nothing on engine replacement for noise.
