I cannot afford another car with payments..This car is paid off. 2000 Toyota Camry Please HELP

I would go to some where other than the dealer. They will be the most to fix your car. Also you can put in a used engine. That will save you money. Labor will be the same. You could also buy a rebuilt engine from a engine rebuilder. Most auto part stores sell rebuilt engines. Also there is ATK, LKQ that sell rebuilt engines. LKQ also sells used engines. That is who I use for my engines rebuilt or used. They have a great warranty also. Hope this helps
