My name is Gary and I am a ASE certified master mechanic in both truck and auto. In the past year I have had two 1993 Mercury Villagers with broken crankshafts. The break is about 2 1/2 inches from the front of the crank. You can just replace the crankshaft with a crank kit(, but this still requires you to pull the engine and you need some mechanical skills to complete the job correctly. In the two cases I had, it was cheaper to replace the engine with a low mileage used engine. I used engines out of two 1995 Nissan Pathfinders. The cost was about $500 for the engine and you have to strip it down to the block and heads and change over all the components. This is a lot of work, but if you have the capabilities it will save you a lot of money.
