1 Answer


If you had flames under the hood, behind the engine, you likely burned out electrical work. The car's value probably isn't high enough to warrant repairing the damage. Have a mechanic evaluate the work and if it's near $1,000, have a salvage yard tow it away. You'll probably get $200 for it.
