would that be a cheap or expensive fix? the car is in the color I want.

I think it could be just bad motor mount (this is something is always over looked)

I say go for it...worst case scenario is you learn how to fix it and spend a few hundred $$ doing so.

Personally I wouldn't. Especially if the rod bearings need replacing. It is not worth it.

If its not knocking at idle, then you have a 50/50 shot at the rod bearings not being completely gone. Its not super difficult work, but it is time consuming. And the bigger part is you have to have the tools to see if the rod journals are out of round ect. Also, the unknown question was why the bearings failed in the first place. Did they run it out of oil which could indicate a bigger problem in which case pull the motor and get a replacement or take it into the machine shop and have a professional go thru it. Or was it just really high mileage.
