Q: Q: engine switch

asked by on

IDK how to add on to an exsisting question. but would it be better to just replace the engine ie.. easier or cheaper?

My car has 53000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The cost to replace the engine may exceed the value of the vehicle. It will cost less to replace the engine with a used one versus overhauling the existing engine.
