Not sure how it happened but my 1990 Sub wagon (2 wheel drive automatic) ran low enough on oil to seize and snap one of the timing belts.
The mechanic that worked on it said that although it was seized on the broken belt side he freed it up and replaced both belts.
My question is how bad has this damaged my engine?
Its an original mileage 58K - EA82 engine.The mechanic said get rid of it.But he also said that those engines were only good for about 80K and then they were worn out.
The wagon is pristeen with no rust at all.I"m considering rebuilding the engine.Perhaps running the current engine till it dies and acquiring a junk yard rebuildable core.
I realise there are no gaurantees but opinions are welcomed.
