01 mitsubishi eclipse w/91,000 miles will need new engine. i owe $8,000 on it?

Why a drivers license so hard to get in new york?

are you sure need a new engine?

When you transport a car with a Car Moving Company, can you put personal items such as clothing in your car?

I think the dealer is trying to burn you.

Car/window paint?

Find another mechanic to put a used engine in. Don't..I repeat, DON"T go through the dealer to have the engine worked on. You can find a good, used engine for around $500, and pay an independent mechanic another $500 to put it in. Far less than the $3000!

An older car list?

Mitsui's are like 1980's American cars...terrible!!

Is the In line 6 the smoothest engine around?

Actually, IF you can get a used engine for $3000, it might be a good bet, but have someone else check it out first before diving in. You may be paying for something that won't even be done(such as washing the engine, and claiming they intstalled something "new")

Why doesn't the smoke from the car during winter come out all the time?

Next time buy an extended warranty!! Then you wouldn't be worrying about owing $8000.00 on it! When its only worth $100.00 now with a bad engine! If you bought the extended warranty when you bought it you would be getting a NEW engine on a 91000 mile Eclipse! Paying the extra money on a warranty doesn't seem so bad now, does it?

Could I get this covered under warranty?

The engine in an eclipse is an interference engine . Which means that if the timing belt broke there is a chance the pistons were slammed into the valves . Especially if the engine was running around 2000 rpm when it broke.
