Default 2000 civic needs engine replaced?

we bought the $2500 dx civic about 9 months ago and have put about $1500 into it, if we do the engine it will be about $2000, $1,000 for engine and $1,000 for labor.. is this a good deal? is it woorth fixing? or should I just use that money on buying another used car?















not sure I want to go wrecking yard route as I want a warranty if i go engine route as i dont want to replace again in another 3-6 months lol

That's too much, phone around to wrecking yards, you should be able to find a used one for 500, then 600 at a shop to put it in.

Be careful about having more in a car than it is worth. If you get hit by some one the insurance company will not pay more then the value.
