Is it worth it?

If the oil got that hot I would be suspicious of bearing damage also... Did
coolant end up in the block, did oil leak out, why was the gauge pegged?
IMHO might be cheaper to find another 3b in decent shape.

Have heard all "good things" about autofirme in Duchess county (1 1/2hrs
north of NYC). Although they're somewhat local to me, I do all my own work
so no first hand experience!

Wherever you end up, would suggest you make sure the mechanic is familiar
with the i5's! My parts guy keeps telling me these are OLD cars! (He does
that with a smile)
