The shop tried to tell me that it would take 10 hours just to get the engine down to the block in order to replace the gaskets. $$$$. Really like the car, but had a overheating issue on the freeway due to a failed water pump and pulleys. Not sure if its economically viable to keep fixing...something about aluminum blocks. Do you have an opinion?
