Ok, sorry...part of why I took it somewhere is due to extreme lack of time between school and work.

Nothing was signed...I filled out a form with my name and address along with a discription of the problem.

Special Ed::: I knew taking it in was going to be costly, no issue there. My issue is it taking a week and a half to get a diagnosis. The one mechanic even admitted they have worked on it for all of 5 hours "in between other jobs." Cost wise it was a "hey, is this price normal? due to my lack of experience.

Right now I am leaning towards just having them put in an engine, seeing as how I dont want to put the money into the head just to have the bottom give me issues in the near future.

Is $2300 for a 4.0 out of a '99 with 60k miles a fair price? Should I ask for some $$$ off for them taking so long resulting in me needing to rent a car for the last week?
