Is there anything wrong with the car? If there is, the powertrain warranty will cover it.

The car is a Salvage title.... Now I know not to spend money on a salvage car.... The amount of money that I'm probably going to end up spending by the time the car is in normal condition, I couldve probably gotten a clean title, and had the Dealer worry about all of this...

So I foumd a V6 motor for $1500 with 14k miles on it... With installation im looking at around $2200... Hopefully it all goes well.. If I am at the shop, I will take pics throughout the process.. My choices were either another valve job, that might be iffy, or do the swap which will hopefully have a better end result ... Also got 3-Months warranty on the motor.. Keeping my fingers crossed
