    Good grief!
    Sounds like a total RIP off at those prices.
    It also sound like if they can't diagnose it, and if all else fails. Replacing the engine will fix it.
    I would suggest getting a second opinion on it from another shop.
    It sounds like you have a blown head gasket problem.
    You could try and run some head gasket sealer thru it first and see how that does.
    Good luck.
