Hello All !
I have a 2003 FX 45 316,000 faithful miles !! She will not start, has been sitting for a few weeks. Towed to dealer and they advised low compression on all cylinders approx 76 psi.
I am thinking about an engine replacement and received a quote from a local shop for 6k for everything for an engine with 89k miles. Any suggestions?

Low compression means something is leaking: piston, rings, valves, head gasket. Fixing the problem may be costly if you can not do the necessary repairs yourself, but replacing the engine, in my opinion, would be the most extreme solution and would likely exceed the value of the car. It may be time look for another opinion, or a newer roadster.
