    Re: Engine Replacement

    You didn't mention what year Catera you have, but basically there are two variations in the engines for the Catera. The `97 and '98 are the same and the '99 through '01 are the same. Check on E-bay to give you and idea of the price range which would depend on mileage and condition.

    In all cases, make sure the timing belt replacement recall has been done on the engine. This is very important. It might be hard to get the records on a salvage engine, though.

    Is it truly worth it. Run the numbers for costs and what the car will be worth when finished.
