I am the proud owner if a 2000 CRV and recently due to suspected cooling issues, the engine blew, I bought it two years ago for about 2k, and the shop wants to charge around 5k to get a replacement. The CRV I have is in superb condition and I've for the most part thrown out the idea of getting a new car. Does anyone have experience with engine replacements? Advice? I will not be doing it myself but I would still like to know what to watch out for from the mechanic.
