I would take him to court and sue him for a new engine. Was your alternator and battery giving you any problems before. If not I would sue for that also. He mite be trying to scare you so you don't sue him. I would have another shop give you a estimate for the cost of a new enigine. Then go to him and say pay this or I am taking you to court. Small claim court is they way to go. Cheap and no need for lawyers.
