So I just bought a 2014 Jeep Compass off a dealer a few days ago and 24 hours later it was in the red on the thermostat. I had a Jeep gr cher 03 prior to this and I was dumping water in to go a mile so this scared me. I called car dealer ASAP and they said it could be the fans but that whatever it is they would cover it (I have a warranty). The mechanic calls me back today and says there’s a blockage so it’s either head gasket or a crack in the engine block so they need to do a full engine repair. He said I’m looking at getting it back early next week because they need to order the part.

my question is : Will mechanics typically do a rebuild or replace the whole thing? If they replace the whole thing will they use a new engine or a used one? It had 147k on it will this reset the odometer and give me more life out of the Jeep?

I’m trying to look on the bright side here even though my car **** the bed 24 hours after buying it, at least I am fixing it early and it’s covered under warranty.
