That all depends on what is actually wrong, if the engine is totally worn out, and that is unlikely unless it was not maintained properly, then if it is I would say not worth a new engine, maybe a used to sell it as a running vehicle afterwards. Or if your totally in love with the car and will drive till the wheels fall then spend the bucks on a new engine, beats a car payment. Or it could just need new valve guides and seals and that is just a top end overhaul, not near as expensive as a new engine, need to,know more about the coolant leak, could be a water pump, freeze plug or just some bad hoses.
