I put $5k into my car and now the motor blew. Not buying a new engine, how can I get at least $1k back. It’s a 02 Neon and I am sure nobody on craigslist is going to pay $1k for a broken down neon. How profitable is it to sell the parts? Will I get buyers quick?

        Then you obviously cannot take care of a car and any other car you get will just get neglected until you're in the exact same position again.

        Bike or bus pass for you.

          Riding the bus is so embarrassing.

            At least you have the option to ride a bus. If my shit blows I'm completely fucked and have to pay $30 minimum just to get to work for one day, another $30 just to get back. For reference I'm maybe 10 miles from work.

        How did the 5k not include new gaskets for the engine?

    It'll be cheaper to buy an engine from a scrapper and pay a mechanic to install it than buy a new car. You otherwise have $5k of good parts in this neon. Car-part.com

      You think somebody who’s new to fixing cars can install the engine by theirselves

        You think him telling you to have a mechanic install it means you should do it yourself? Do you not understand English?

          I was asking him a question but forgot the question mark. It wasn’t supposed to come off as an insulting rhetorical question but as a genuine question if it was possible for me to just not have to pay the labor costs and to do it myself

        Replacing an engine isn't even that difficult for someone to do but the equipment needed to manipulate the engine is something that most people don't have and is expensive to buy.

    why did you put 5k into an 02 neon

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      Because I was told its cheaper to buy used and repair it when it breaks than buying a $50k car and being forced to pay someone for the next 5 years

        true but at the end of the day its still a neon.

            A shitty dodge neon that no one gave a fuck when new is not going to fetch even inflated prices now unless it's an ACR. They're literal disposal trash heaps that are meant to go to a-b as reliability as a Maserati

            No, it's worth quite a bit less than that now because the motor is fucking blown

        You received sound advice, you just applied it poorly. You should have bought a well used Toyota Carrola or Honda Civic, you were doomed the second you bought the peon.

        well, if you buy another 5k neon you're still ahead of the "pay out a 50k car for 5 years" curve. and you'll have a whole car's worth of spares too.

    I remember you from the other thread. Just take the L, scrap the Neon, and find someone else to help you not make such fucking retarded decisions in the future. Maybe start leasing something with a warranty, that might be the best option for someone like you.
