Thanks, everyone, for your advice and suggestions. He pretty much did everything wrong, down to and including giving the seller a good rating on eBay - which you apparently can't change after the 45 day period. The one mildly bright spot is that when he told me that he bought a crap engine, he said "You were right again, Dad." Let's hope he remembers that next time.

We're in negotiations as to what he will do next. He needs a car to get to his job, so letting him do without isn't an option. But I'll be extracting more severe terms and conditions this time. :-)
