Jeep Cherokee 2.5 petrol

Hi

Yesterday while driving on along the motorway we had a bang and complete power failure, when recovery arrived they checked the timing belt which had snapped. Apparently this will normally damage the engine.

To Fix or sell is the question I keep asking myself. Any ideas please?

Depends on how much you love your Jeep.

You might be lucky and have no damage at all, albeit unlikely. It then comes down to how bad the damage is. Bent valves is probably a given though. You could be looking at a bill of 400 ish for a worse case repair.

It might even be cheaper to chuck in a new (used) engine.
