Should I need some advice I don't much about car 🚗
Should I buy this car for $250 it has engine problems?

No. The engine is most complicated and most expensive component on any car. Since the price is so low I have to assume this car has a blown engine that would need a replacement. The cost of a good used engine and labour to replace it could well exceed the value of the car if it had a good engine.1
Just be prepared to pay thousands to get that engine fixed unless you or someone you know can fix it for free/cheap.0
I wouldn't buy it unless you have someone experienced with fixing cars to take a look at it to see if it's worth buying. If you can't have someone experienced go look at it, than take someone else and have them pretend like their experienced and try and get the price knocked down to $100, and after buying it you find out it's gonna take a lot to fix it than you can sell it for junk and break even or possibly make a few extra bucks.0
Are you really serious about asking for an opinion? I highly doubt it.
You will waste your $250 cause the engine will break down the next day. Dont do it!!!
Buy something that is $5000 if you can. I still say dont do it. They cost to fix the engine might be more than $250 depending on the problem0
No! That 250 will turn into 15000
Its rather harder to find a car without many problems for only $250 the biggest thing you need to know is if the engine is seized. To find out make sure the car turns over when you try to start it. You should be able to tell by a clicking sound. If it doesn't click its most likely seized. However it could be a very simple fix as well so just make sure you know someone who can help ya out just incase.0

Obviously not - if the engine fails or doesn't work properly the car is basically useless. You could still buy it and put in in your garden as a decoration or something tho 😅0
If they're selling it that low and they admit it has engine problems I doubt it would even be drivable or repairable. Maybe but it if you want the parts0
No... save up some more money and buy a car with a good engine even if it has a not so attractive body. It is going to cost more on repairs and maintenance and most likely won't pass a smog and you won't be able to get it registered. You'll find a good car just be patient, and avoid "deals" because they're masked headaches.0
Chances are if they are selling it for $250 then it will need a LOT of work. I bought a car for $1500 and ended up spending around $3000 total for the car + the repairs that it needed. I would suggest you have a mechanic check it out so they can inform you of everything that is wrong with it.0
What kind of engine issues? It's likely that fixing it will be way more than getting a more reliable car0
Don't do it. Engine problems to fixed by a mechanic will rack up to a thousand dollars to fix.0
don't do it. it would cost more to get the engine fixed than the car itself1
No, don't do it. You'll probably end up paying more on repairing it then you do on the car.0
