Hi there:

It really depends on what’s wrong with your engine and the extent of damage that has occurred. It might be better to purchase a car that is running as opposed to trying to replace the motor in your 2005 Dodge Neon. In order to give you a realistic estimate, you should have one of our mobile mechanics complete a detailed engine inspection first.
