Hi! My car broke down on me (2000 Lincoln LS). It basically shut down like a computer would. However, trying to start it will turn but immediately do the same thing. Under the hood I was able to idle it and it stayed started but I heard a ticking sound (not knocking, ticking). I took it to the shop where there the mechanics attempted to do a diagnostic. They claimed that they couldn't get a reading with the tests. This morning he called and stated my engine is gone. Mind you, he didn't get that fact from any test. Please advise!!
