2004 Mazda 6 3.0 L engine uggg!

hi guys, I bought a 2004 Mazda6 for my niece, they told me the engine had recently been replaced with a used 89k engine and that it ran great blah blah, seemed to run fine. I took it for an oil change and washup before giving it to her and they said yea, the wheels are about to fall off - the wrong tires on here etc - 1,700.00 later I give her the car. All going well then seemed to have a coolant leak - mechanic said its a hose, 200.00 bucks - she never changed it and in the midst of a 100 mile trip it wouldn't run, big cloud of white smoke - yep fried. I found a motor with 85k miles on it - for 1,300.00 shipped to the door. 1,600.00 for the labor another 400.00 for parts. Not even 5 miles down the road the transmission isn't shifting into 2nd gear. I had her bring it back, they were closed for the holiday - today, oh it needs a catalytic converter! what the hell! we can't afford to put any more money in this thing and she needs a car. suggestions???

Deborah, it might be time to cut your losses. You are looking at probably another $1000 to drop in another transmission.
