The rest of your car is 17 years old so of course things will wear out and need repair.

200,000 miles? I would chalk it up to experience and move on. If you had not driven it while hot it would not be needing an engine most likely. If you could find a reasonably priced used engine and had the experience to install it yourself it would maybe a different story.
