#4 of 4 Mercury Sable Engine problems

My 2005 mercury sable has major engine problems.Three major repair shops have different answers how to repair it.Only has 70000 miles on it.Dealer said I need a new $5000 engine and all previous repairs were unnecessary and done wrong. I just spent $1800 at STS to repair half the engine and still have rough run,check engine light on and won't pass state emission.Current mechanic says all previous repairs were done wrong ,I don't need a new engine, but his $1500 repair will fix it. I already spent $4000 in repairs. Do I buy a new engine,get another expensive repair,or trash the car? All 3 mechanics and dealers disagree with each other. Who can I believe or trust. I filed a warranty dispute with Ford over engine, and a BBB claim against The $1800 repair done wrong. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.Thanks.
