My engine has seized up a couple times, and Im thinking itll take a rebuild. Any idea how much that costs?

Re: Seizing engine (digital_dreamer)

Well, its seized up when Im driving. Last time, the engine made this terrible metallic rattling noise and just stopped. The time before that, it was a quiet, fluttering sound....and then it just stopped.

Both times, when I'd try to start it up again, the cam had totally seized. alternator and starter are fine, but the cam is frozen. The shop had previously called it a fluke, but since it happened again, theres no way it can be. Im just worried that theres probably some damage after this last episode. Oh, and the engine has about 230K
