Default recommendations for repair/restoration in NJ

My '98 318ti has a major issue with oil leaking into the crankcase and is no longer driveable. I've taken great care of the car and I don't think it's quite ready for the junkpile just yet, though it's just over 200k. Does anyone have any mechanic/garage recommendations in north N.J. that might be good?

Any more details? I thought oil in the crankcase was a good thing lol. They normally leak from oil filter housing or valve cover gasket 1st....then the oil pan with more miles. Oil pan dran plug can leak as well with out good crush washer. Front and rear main seals normally last a while but with 200k, anything is possible

I meant oil is leaking *from* the crankcase...so oil is leaking into the spark plugs causing one of the pistons to not fire which means it can only be driven very short distances. Just wondering if anyone has a repair recommendations in north NJ/metro-NYC. thanks
