It sucks, but it happens to all of us and if you can sit back, smile and laugh about the s**t car you had as a kid (like we all did) then your miles ahead in life then alot of people!

Alot of workshops will do the work and accept weekly payments, maybe get your parents to go in.
Ask them to pay for it and you pay them back, they will understand.

Plus, its just one motor, its not a big deal, its like $12-1300 in parts and labour total.
It's alot short term, but nothing after a few months :)

The cost of motors for EF's are very cheap, would be cheaper if you are skilled enough (apprentice Mechanic?) to replace the motor yourself or with the help of freinds or Family.
