Don't drive the car. Hopefully you can save the block and that just means out in a new crank

There are complete used engines for less then or at 4k, just depends on mileage. The least fuss would be to get one and pay someone $1000-$1300 to drop it in. As soon as you crack this engine open your ability to find a worthy mechanic that can successfully recondition it goes down considerably, and the labor hours goes up, so the cost assuming you have to get into the bottom end, all things considered your further ahead just going with a complete used engine and bolt it in. If you do this, you can dissemble your current engine yourself or pay for it during your troubleshooting and inspect for damage and possibly sell off some parts to recoup some cost depending on condition, but that may or may not be financially beneficial. A good crank goes for abut $800. Rods and a good head and misc can give you another$600- $800, just to give you an idea.
