My ZX3 is dead.
Cant even be turned over with a breaker bar.

I am in a tough spot right now, as I cannot replace the whole car with my company laying off people in the near future thanks to oil prices.

Does anyone have any recommendations of a shop that can replace the motor for less than what the whole car is worth?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Located in NW Houston/ Cypress

Ask an insurance adjuster for advice on a good/inexpensive shop, make sure he knows you want "off the record" advice so he doesnt plug whatever shop his company pushes. Had a tranny replaced for 700 this way.
Ive also heard of websites where mechanics will bid on your repair, no xp with that tho.
