I was told by a mechanic that I had to broke cylinders and it couldnt be fixed, is this true? Im not sure if I need to replace the engine or the heads. Just trying to get a second opinion.

Greetings,

If the cylinders are cracked then you will need a new engine block, not a new head. There is no way to fix a cylinder crack. Even the slightest crack will cause the engine to misbehave.
