Replace motor or car?

I've been having a lot of problems with this car and now a mechanic said my camshaft damper has some play. That's a $300 part at oreilys. So with that said I've changed a lot of parts and would hate to start all over. Would you guys suggest getting a motor from the junk yard

Yeah it's not a lot but I've replaced so many stuff I don't want to start over with another car. Swaps are out of the question

Do you not like the car?
You can take some time off to look around for some fun cars to drive, especially the'14 to '15
