    Default New Engine - Advice please

    It appears the engine in my Vectra 2.2 direct 06 plate has seized due to a sudden escape of oil and I dread to think what damage has been caused.

    It is currently at the garage but I would imagine he is going to tell me its not worth repairing.

    Does anyone know roughly how much it would cost to have a re-condition engine put into my car. So thats the engine cost and the labour cost? Is it worth it?

    Any replies will be greatly received. Thanks

    You should be able to google recon engines. Sorry but don't know what the cost would be

    Last time I looked on eBay a 2nd hand lump was about £800, your probably looking around 8 hours labour plus bits like a new clutch I'd imagine somewhere around £1600 done
