According to the local shop that is doing the timing chain, oil pump, and water pump on the Sunchaser, at some point in the life of the car, something that attaches to a sprocket came loose inside the car and caused some kind of damage that they say can only be fixed with a new engine.

I don’t understand exactly, so I need to go over there and ask a lot of questions. I am very sad.

Does this sound like an engine replacement problem to you? Could it be traced to a time frame? Only 3 shops have touched it since I got it.
