Default Buy a new engine or a new car?

I have a Honda Civic with a minor cracked engine block. I want to ask that, Is it time to buy a new car or buy a new engine?

Depends on what you aiming for and what your budget is. E.g. if it is a prior 2000 Civic whit double whishbone axis on both axis I would keep it and swap the engine by a revised K-Series engine...

...a minor crack is a minor crack. If it is on the right place of the crankcase it is harmful. I would like to see it before to writing any definite recommendation to that.
