You have to weigh your options, it will depend on how much this car is worth now and if it is fixed, how much another car will cost you (incl. car price, loan, insurance etc.), and the overall condition of the vehicle. If you keep it in good condition then it's probably worth it.

no the car is not worth it thy are notorious for front main seal leaking and causing the timming tension to fail and cause them to jump time again within 5-10 thousand miles if it has the 2 peice tensionor if it is the 1 peice then it is a 50 - 50 shot and the price is about the going rate
