well last week as i was driving when i had some problems. what appears to have happend is something got stuck on a tensior pulley locking it in place, and shredded the serpentine belt. insurance is saying there's nothing they can do. but so far the damage in the pully, serpentine belt, alternator and a ticking coming from the side of an engine, im sitting at $1600 in repairs. for the ticking its around $300 for them to look into the valve cover and about another $500 for them to pull the head if they can't find it from the valve cover. only had the car for about 2 years, and still owe $5,000 on it. bought the car for $8,000 but pulled out a little extra to replace the known failures on the car so it would last me a while
is this something i should keep paying into to get looked at? or should i just try to sell the car for parts/total it through insurance? the price of the car doesn't quite seem like its worth doing either, but i still owe =( any suggestions?
