What is better to rebuild an engine or buy a used and how much cost to do this any aprox. In price

You are better off rebuilding the engine if you intend to keep the car, the engine may last far longer if it is looked after and there are no unforeseen incidents. If you are selling a car then fitting a used engine can be cost effective, if you shop around wisely you can find a good engine for a reasonable price. Some buy salvage/donor cars to sort their own vehicle out from insurance auctions/salvage sales.
Rebuilding is usually more expensive but I would far rather have a rebuilt engine than a used one.
The thing with used units is that you cannot usually tell how well they have been maintained.
The choice is yours

Cam bearing is scored due to blockage from debris in the ocv...blockage is preventing vvt control and setting code recommends replacing engine? help!

if the cam shaft is damaged then the cam shaft will have to be replaced
if the shaft is still serviceable then the bearing shells will need replacing
The problem is the blockage in the oil galleys
To do a good job ( professional) the engine will have to be stripped right down and the oil galleys blown out completely after washing in a solutions tank
You will have to get quotes from engine rebuilding shops as to that cost It will be cheaper if you can pull the motor down yourself and then rebuild using any new parts as required
The valve timer unit may be able to be stripped and cleaned out or new units would be the way to go
OK no knowing what is entailed to do a professional job, the next course of action would to be to price a full motor from a wreckers , preferably one that has rear end damage so that there will be no engine damage. This would entail a swap over of motors. Quicker and within the scope of a mechanically minded person
Next would be a fully rebuilt service exchange motor from an engineering shop ( warranty included) and again it is a remove and rebuild operation. again it would be quicker
don't be fooled into thinking that a oil change or an engine flush will do the trick as it will cost you more in the long run

I have a 1998 k full siize /chev sileverado 1500 4x4 1st and 2nd work but 3rd an over drive do not

This is not a D.I.Y. project. It is complicated and costly if you don't rebuild it correctly. Save yourself the headache , R/R it to save a few bucks , but have a reputable facility rebuild it, and would probably come with a warranty.

MY 2001 ford escort se has oil in my radiator and water in my oil...No smoke but there is a little steam,A loud knocking is comming from under my valve cover.Please tell me i might not have to rebuild or...

There was a head gasket problem and some water goes to the piston head. It is wise to open the engine and let the machine shop engr. to do the total cost estimate to rebuild it. Cost including the parts and labor of the mechanic who assemble the engine. If the total cost of rebuilt is cheaper then let it be done by the mechanic. Option 2 is to find a second hand engine from surplus dealer and have a cost comparison.

So i was just wondering what the compression should be at cause i ran a compression test and on three of the cyliders the had a little over 100 PSI and the other was 70. and if the 70 is bad what do i do?

A car that old is not worth rebuilding the engine. For the price of an engine rebuild you can buy a 99 Saturn with half the miles. Or you can call a junkyard and see if they can locate you a SOHC saturn engine to fit a 92, probably any Saturn SOHC up to 95 will do. Used motor will cost 300-400 dollars plus removal/install while a rebuild will cost you 1500 at least plus a removal/install.

Cost to rebuild 2003 overland engine

Cost to rebuild depends largely upon what exactly failed in order to need a rebuild.(which parts failed, what else is worn etc) There are many benefits to a good rebuild, the primary one is that once used, the actual casting has moved around and taken a set, making any machine work more accurate and less likely to change with use.
The drawback is that if there was a bearing or other failure that generated metal debris, unless the block is flushed out completely, that debris will eventually find it's way to a major component and cause another failure. Then, there is the actual quality of the work itself...that depends upon the knowledge and ethics of the rebuilder.
In most cases, you are better off finding a low mile engine from a scrap yard or buying a replacement engine from the factory (called a crate engine) Labor for R&R depends upon prevailing rate in your area.
You have much more to think about besides cost!!!
