2000 amigo~crakced head

I think my amigo has a cracked head. Long story short. It only has 75k miles. Idled rough for like a week, check engine light came on...(5 minutes later) Immediately took it to the nearest place. They thought it was a gasket. Replaced it. $1500 dollars later still not fixed.
Then Quoted $3000 more to maybe fix it if that is the problem. I paid out what I owed. I drove it CAREFULLY home.
Never ran hot. But the Coolant is in the oil.
JUST had a 70k maintenance.

Can't afford or have the know how to fix it. If anyone is interested. I just want my $1500 back! Live in Texas near Houston.

What engine, the 3.2L or 2.2L? Are you the original owner? If so, this is covered by the 10/120 warranty. 5/60 subsequent owner's warranty would have expired by now.

I had same problem for my 99 Migo(2.2L) around 68500mi. I sent my car to Isuzu dealer. They told me the map sensor was getting worst. They ordered the part and replaced it for me. It cost me about $260. Not too bad.
