I am looking at some major engine repairs for my '06 3.5 with 167,000 miles on it. Being a girl and I didnt realize my car was burning oil and now I have the horrendous knocking engine noise that i have been told is serious. I really leaning towards repairing because I LOOOOVE the car and LOOOOVE no note even better. I guess i was just looking for any tips or comments on the validity of this repair, pitfalls of choosing a shop. i am in dallas, so if anyone knows of a good inexpensive shop i could use it would be great. Right now the car is parked so I am definately not driving ti.
