there are several signs know if you need a new engine,if the engine uses lots of oil especially burning oil or if the oil light comes on when proper oil level is met,could be signs of worn crankshaft bearings any loud metallic knocking noises the engine makes is a good indication,if you need a new engine go to a salvage yard its the best way to save money engine rebuilds are not cost effective,or you could consider selling you car to a high school student and use the money to buy a new car
