Blown engine

Hey everyone, I am sad to report that I recently lost the engine in my white 240d. She was a wonderful running car since I rescued her from an auction yard for 500 bucks.

Unfortunately she started burning oil all of a sudden like none other. didnt keep up and the inevitable happened the other day...THUMP after severe tapping.

Anyway Thats the car in the picture to the left, a beautiful white 240d I spent many hours hand-rubbing the original paint to look wet and an interior like new.

If anyone has a resource for engines I need one desperately! I am going to bring her back to life once again.

Any help is greatly appreciated folks! Thanks.

Great idea. I am in Lockeford, CA. Any help would be great!

Thanks for the link TB101, that is nice of you. The number is disconnected and I am hoping for a return email from him.
