Help on a big decision!!!

I have an 02 focus SPI
126k no problems but

Leaking coolant resiovoir
EGR tube busted (fixed)
Motor mounts (fixed)

Its my 1st car ever... i want to keep it... i just really am afraid to drive it...

this winter im rebuilding my 1st engine at the age of 21 for my 83 ranger...

Might sound stupid but when i read on here and see all the mayhem of valve seats dropping and stuff... scares the piss outta me...i drive my 1983 ranger more than my focus to paint a picture for you...

Now if tomorrow it dropped i would try my hardest to fix it... new angine and stuff becuase it wouldnt be worth anything...

So should i sell it before something happens? while it still holds its 2500 lol i mean thats a nice down deposit...

If someone can please talk some sense into me i would gladly appreciate it...
I stress more than anyone in the world....
and could use a quick hand...

well... do you have the means to replace it? You're gonna need a whip while youre rebuilding the ranger motor. Maybe just get this winter out of it? Or on the flip side, while youre rebuilding the ranger motor if the spi quits then you're screwed royally
