I have all the parts needed to rebuild a 1997 Dodge Intrepid Sport with 109,112 miles on it. It has been in a accident . I was thinking of rebuilding it. I have never heard it run . And, I need to make to many repairs before I am able to turn the motor over. Some repairs include: the whole front part of the chassis that holds the headlights and all of the cylinders that hold the brake fluid, the windshield washer fluid, the blinkers and the grill; everything including the new radiator etc.. Like I said I do have all the parts needed. My question is do you think this is a project worth attempting seeing that I have no idea as to the quality of the motor/engine!!! Also, is there any possible way to determine the quality of a engine/motor without hearing it run, or without driving it? Thank you for your time in this matter...

at least see if you can start it. running it a few minutes won't hurt anything. then check oil for clarity. also check the chassis as it still could cost major dollars to fix if frame is bent up. other than that ther eisn't any way to test it due to its' not driveable.
