What should it cost to replace the engine in a 1998 Isuzu Amigo?

(1998 Isuzu Amigo)
in Slidell, LA on November 16, 2012
I had posted the problems I was having this week and was trying to drive it to shop when it died. Wouldn't start back up. Had tow truck take it to shop and they told me I have a jump time situation. After they looked further into it the shop told me there were some internal parts that were broken and the engine would have to be replaced. They told me it would cost around $5900. They really didn't give me any technical information about exactly what was broken internally. Any suggestions? btw, I am female so I'm used to getting jacked around a little.

When you give them money they give you specifics in writing. Then post those specific details here so someone can offer more helpful advice. How many miles on engine?
