Off to the shop to get going on repairs

The car was left in the capable hands of Motive Auto Works to begin the tear down process. I should know soon how bad things are then we get moving on fixing it.

The first update I received:

Since then I have found out that the timing was just fine and the timing belt was in good condition.  That was the good news.  The bad news was that a camshaft was scoured and the head casing for it was also damaged.  They will both need to be replaced.  I expect to find out at this point that the main failure was a spun bearing or two.  I wouldn't doubt, though, that one or more of the piston ringlands are in bad shape as well.
