1300 isnt a bad deal at all. I always look at it two ways, if u cant fix it or dont want to, sell the parts off of the car, you will make back all of your money hands down.

Default motor

You could get a used motor for around $350 and pay to have it installed.
Add up the total and see if its worth it.
