Whether to replace a failed engine is a highly personal decision that should be based on many factors. Primarily, you need to balance the cost of replacing the engine against the car’s overall value, age, and any other repairs it may need. Another possibility is to choose a rebuilt engine rather than a new one. The cost savings can be significant, but make sure there is a warranty. The last thing you need is for the new-to-you rebuilt engine to fail.
Either way, if you have an older car that needs other pricey repairs, or is likely to need them soon, it may not be worth replacing your engine. However, if the car is a fairly late model and is otherwise in good shape, replacing the engine can be a wise investment. Ask your auto technician for advice.
