This morning I was on my way to my monday through friday job in Fremont driving my 1996 white Rav4, traveling from my apartment I share with my boyfriend in Livermore, Ca. When on the freeway my engine siezed up and blew up, there was no warning signs, my gauges all read in the gree zones. I waited on the side of the road for a tow truck and took it into a shop in Pleasanton to have it looked at.

I just found out that my fears were correct my engine has a very giant hole in it, my option is to put a used engine in my car from a 1996 that already has 130k miles on it and will cost anywhere from $2500-$3000 for this used engine. The mechanic told me even that wasnt really worth it as the engine woukd cost half of what my car cost, and already has 20,000 more miles then my engine that exploded had.

My only other option is to find and buy a used car, the problem is I am completely on my own financially, I work a minimum wage job monday through friday, I pay rent for my apartment, and I pay 100% of all my other bills, and I honestly dont have the money to be able to afford a new car or to fix my own. Any little bit would help.
