I purchased this vehicle about 9 months ago and there had been extensive work done to it before I bought it. The head gasket had been replaced, timing belt, rebuilt transmission, and a few other things. The only thing was a small oil pan gasket leak, so recently I brought it to a shop to replace the gasket. The mechanic told me there was a good bit of metal in the oil pan, large pieces he said and showed me a photo of bits of metal. He said the inside of the motor will eventually start to knock and then seize and that there was nothing to do but wait and replace the engine. Is this the case? Is there anything I can do that will be less expansive? The car runs perfectly right now. Thank you.
have the same problem?
