If it's paid for and running I'd trade it in. Use the $2200 towards something new(er) that hasn't been neglected. If it's not running get it running as cheaply as possible and trade it in. HTH. -Jim

Sludge in the engine means you seldom if ever changed the oil. Neglect will void your warranty, next time change the oil.
