It started ticking last about a month ago. Now knocking and has a lot of metal in the oil. I expected this car to last a lot longer. Always changed oil at 5000 miles with synthetic. I am thinking about a junk yard motor will cost any were from 900.00 to 1100.00 dollars. It has the manual transmission, does any one know if the engine from a elantra will work or does it have to be from a GT, also will an engine from an auto work in a manual.
