Blown Engine:( What are my options?

Hello all, I have an 08 MR couple days ago disaster happened......BONE stock engine blown at 85K miles.....unreal....And I was getting ready to sell the car since I only have few months left on the payment.

At this point what are my options? I definitely do want to fix it and sell it and get some money out of it for sure......
This might be really stupid question but does full coverage insurance cover blown engine?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

No.

Best bet is first finding out what happened to the motor. Then you can figure out what your options are.

Yeah, what EXACTLY does "blown engine" mean in this case.

Is it seized? Is there a piston smiling through the block? Whatever the case may be you can shoot a PM and we can discuss viable options. We all live in the real world so cost effective methods are always thought out and planned accordingly.

Maybe the engine sucked up water? Maybe you put windshield washer fluid in the wrong orifice (ie engine). Insurance does cover stupidity. Both of these were covered through my body shop, but were legit claims.

Interesting. What signs made you discover or determine the engine had blown?

Not really a dumb question because in some instances insurance will indeed cover an engine.

I was in the automotive service and sales industry for 15+ years and learned some interesting and useless bits of info.

If it is purely a mechanical failure insurance will not typically help.

If you hit something and crack your oil pan, that could potentially be covered.

I always think it is worth a call asking, even though it would be an extraordinarily small chance... there is still that one in a million talk.
