Answer 1
As long as the car is still solid and not rusty, then sure. A new engine is about $4500 installed, or a little more, if you get new hoses, new radiator etc. It depends on what else is worn out. I would shy away from a used engine, unless you can not afford a new one. you would save about $1000, but you never really know what your are getting, I have seen used engines fail in 100 miles, some last for a long time, it is a gamble. here are some shops, ask more than one for a quote, so you get a consistent price. MAKE them stand behind their work. I use to stand behind any engine I put in for 50,000 miles, as long as I personally performed the oil changes every 3-4k. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=52601&car_brand_names=Oldsmobile -
