Didn't mean to sound so ungrateful but my car is the only way to get around since an accident messed up my walking ability and movement results in pain. Car is the only way I can live my life with a sense of normality up here in Newmarket and I'm just trying to get it fixed as fast and do a good job.

Yes if the motor is in fact seized, I've seen many holes blown through the MBSP on other MSP's.

so the swap went well. Picking it up on Monday. The shop wasn't @ fault just because all how much shit was done in a shoddy manner before I bought it. Talking exposed wires, cut wires, bent clamps and all. Thanks for everyones help
