Big bill for timing chain replacement, and associated pump

(2003 Volkswagen EuroVan)
in Laguna Beach, CA on June 22, 2011
Oil pan full of carbonized sludge, chain loose, gear worn, oil pump needed replacing, results in a $7,000 bill. Can't you get a whole new motor for that amount. Done at San Juan Capistrano dealership in California.. I am original owner, never overheated motor that I know of, drove only 10,000 miles per year mostly town. please respond to texhaines@mac.com I will sign up.

it sounds like you neglected to change your oil resulting in this situation.
yes, it sounds like you could have had a new motor for that kind of money.
