Default 1994 Honda Civic Coupe needs work. how much am i looking to pay for the body work, radiator...

...and engine work? im turning 16 soon and my parents are letting me have the old honda civic coupe thats been in the garage for about 4 years. i took it out of the garage today to wash it, see if it still runs, and to inspect it. in order for me to turn it on it had to be jump started. It looks like im looking at a new engine, radiator, body work, and interior in that order.































To shorten it up how much would all this cost, and is it even worth putting in the money or should i forget this project all together and sell the car? any input is appreciated!

um why do u think it needs an engine???...radiator can b done for a couple hundred bucks or less...































body work and interior work are a waste of money on this car.........















































so if it needs an engine probably better to scrap it and find another car...

If it truly needs a new motor I would say now way, call the scrap man get out of it what you can invest it in a new ride. If it is a project car for some sentimental reason better have a good 5000. in hand to start.

you may not need a new motor, have a mechanic look at it first.































the cost of a used engine and installation alone can be about $2,000. the radiator would be about $400 with parts/labor, and there's no real way of determining the cost of bodywork because you didn't specify or leave a picture.































in all actuality, it would be cheaper to should sell the car and get another. it's been sitting for 4 years and it sounds like whoever owned it doesn't know how to properly store a car, which is probably the reason why your engine is gunked up.

If they are giving you the car, I would sell it and look for something a little newer. But get it checked out by a mechanic that you trust before you list it for sale, both for your own information and so you can get the right price for it.































You can get an estimate of your car's value from Edmunds.com. Here is the link for a 1994 Honda EX Coupe. Assuming that your car has around 90,000 miles on it, it appears to be worth less than $1,000.

Call your local junkyard for an engine and radiator.

if the only reason you think you need a new engine is the fact that you had to jump it then you dont need a new engine, you need a new battery, if its been sitting for 4 years then that makes sense, cant give you an estimate on body work because it varies, i work at a body shop, if it has the usual honda rust dont fix it because the only way to permanently and safetly fix it is to replace the qaurter panel, which cost around 3 to 5 grand normally. the new radiator is cheap, probably around 140 bucks, plus coolant, a new battery is 60 for a good one. if your just turning 16 keep the car, dont worry about the body damage if it isnt serious. replace the battery and the radiator if you really need to. could just be the thermostat. have someone check the radiator problem.

highly doubt you need a new engine lol. get it running who cares what it looks like drive it into the ground. radiator is an easy repair. with instructions you can do it yourself
