Garage dispute over faulty camper van - what are my rights?

I bought an engine for my camper van a few months ago. It has now broken down. I took it to a garage who claimed that they could fix it. However, within a few weeks, it broke down again. The garage now wants more money for parts and I don't think this is right. What should I do?

If you are saying you bought a 2nd hand engine for your camper and you paid a garage to fit it for you but it later broke down, then it is possible that the engine you supplied was faulty and that parts need to be replaced.
