I have an 03' stratus r/t with about 177,777 miles on the engine. The engine began knocking, and I was told i can build? My question is SHOULD I PAY THE MONEY TO RE-BUILD THE ENGINE OR BUY A NEW CAR?

You can rebuild it, but ballpark to rebuild a motor is $3K if you have someone do it right for you. Not worth it. Finding a used engine, then maybe. Will be a coupe hundred for the motor and some more for install.
