Is it true that I have to pay $4600 for not adding engine oil?

I was told my entire car engine was wrecked because I did not add oil to the engine myself. I took it in for a $100 check up to find out. There was rattling sounds when I hit the pedal for a few weeks now. They said the lack of oil overheated the engine. I am clueless about cars. Is this true that repairs will cost $4600?

    If the engine is completely destroyed, then yeah, a rebuilt/remanufactured engine can cost that, when you figure in installation. You might also consider having a used engine installed, which could save you some money.

    What year and model is this?
