14 years old, but only 110k and car needs new engine. Solenoid was replaced by my husband within the past year, but we either got a bad part or it went bad and the repair place is saying new engine is needed. My husband and father-in-law agree with this. Unfortunately agreed to solenoid repair before this new recommendation of new engine. I don't think it's worth paying for new engine and am looking at getting a different vehicle, but finances are tight. Do people buy cars that need new engines? I would like to at least get what I paid for the solenoid repair and oil change. Would love any thoughts and advice. Thanks!
