can u give me some advice, the vehicle has had some transmission problems as well, would it be best to replace the engine and hope the transmission holds out or just buy a new car?

Hi there,

This is an interference engine so there will be engine valve damage done, the exact amount is unknown until the head is removed, as for the transmission this is also unknown until the engine is running and a series of test can be preformed, you may be up for a considerable sum if you commit to fixing this car.
