Default 1995 Honda Passport 3.2l v6. Better to rebuild or replace?

My motor on my 95 Honda Passport. 3.2l v6 rattles like a desile. I have almost 250,000 miles. Would I be better off getting one from the junkyard or a crate motor from a chain or machine shop?

You would be much better off geting a used one. To have it rebuilt or getting a crate engine is going to be rediculously expensive.go to www.car-part.com and see what is available in your area. When buying a used motor, check to see if they offer a warranty of any kind.

Better to replace the vehicle than the engine. You'll find it more cost effective.

I'm facing the same issue with my 95 Honda Passport. Rebuilt motors run about $3300 (plus installation). Low-mileage used motors seem impossible to find. I plan to just run it until it dies, then buy something else.
