The car overheated. I had replaced the head gasket already about a year ago. Now it's happening again. My options are to replace the head gasket again, replace the engine, or get a new car. I don' want to replace the gasket again. Should I replace the engine on this car? If so, what is an estimate of price for a new/used engine? or should I just cuts my losses with this car. Last year paid $1500 for head gasket and radiator. Three months ago $300 for ignition coil and one month ago $600 sensor replacement. If I do replace the engine, how long do you think the car will last. Please help! Thank you for your time.

    Buy another vehicle
    Even tho you buy another motor
    Still yet you don't even know when that motor give up again
    It's a gamble 50/50 chances
