Unless you can find a used engine cheap and do some of the labor yourself, I doubt you'd be able to recover your expenses when you sell it. OTOH you won't get much for it without an engine either.

I completely agree with Allen's reply. I sold my 60,000 mile '00 LS V-8 several months ago, for $5200. I would imaging purchasing a used engine and doing the installation would cost you at least $1500-2000 or so. If the car is sound enough, you MIGHT get enough usage out of it to warrant the cost....

I have a 2000- same car, exact same problem, not sure how much money I should put into it- it happened about a month ago. How difficult was it to get to the timing chain and what did you end up doing? I think if I replace the chain I may be able to sell it for 3500 as I have taken good care of it. I already bought a replacement car.
