Customer Question

I bought a Toyota spacia 1999 model about 15 months ago for 8250 dollars privately from a mechanic (his wife's car) I loved this van until it lost power, tapping noises from engine, would turn over, now won't have been told I need new engine its the pistons? I think the odometer may have been changed? Anyway now I have a car worth nothing and I'm a 65 yo single lady..what can I do?

Go here to to get a reasonable price on a used engine have it delivered to the repair facility of your choice and pay them the labor to replace it, I would think you could get it done turn key for around 4000.00. Please RATE my service a 3 or above, if for some reason you can not ,please ASK me another question, I will continue to answer your questions even after rating is given until you are completely satisfied with my answers.
