Hey, i just left a question about my dodge stratus not starting and then went on to reading about Oprah, who i LOVE!! doing more good deeds... if I could give anyone anything...

The body and interior are in good shape, is it worth it to replace the motor? The mechanic said it would be $1800+- to rebuild it or $3000 to replace the motor with a new turbo motor. That sounds like a bit much for a new ...
