So guys, I just overheard my mom talking to my grandmother over the phone about finances and apparently my dad told her earlier today that since he took the Ody for more diagnostics this morning they told him it needs a new engine...for a fricking $5000. (from what I overheard, I'll update when I get more info.) That's a lot of money; the options here are to trade it in, fix it and give up travel for the next few years :P and idk (again, just info from overhearing...) I'm currently taking a college computer course, a full-day SAT Prep Course, doing summer hw, and practicing violin for next week's orchestra summer camp...I don't fricking have time to worry about this! I need some help...any ideas, Oppo?

Update: All I know is he's in a loaner Civic so far...
