Motor just blew on the van

We just finished spending thousands of dollars fixing our van getting it ready for the summer tour season. Replaced the thermostat, water pump, radiator, heater switch, and a few other things trying to fix our overheating problem. So it was done finally yesterday and we left early this morning to get across the country to Illinois. We got all the way through Utah into Wyoming before everything hit the fan. The motor made a very loud grinding noise and completely died. It spit it's fluids all over the shoulder of the highway. There are two holes in the side of the motor casing. It is done. We need a new motor.

This all happened an hour after we finally got the mobile tracking satalite dish system working poperly. What a crazy universe.
