Default 1995 sl2 dohc engine replacement cost

hello all... I was just curious if anyone know how much it will cost to replace my 1995 sl2 1.9 DOHC motor. I think it's FUBAR'd. it died and I saw white smoke from engine compartment.
Coolant, oil and trans fluid levels all ok.
It has a hard time starting then stalls. I hear a belt sound as well..

thank a lot for you help

Woah... before stating you need to replace the engine, if the fluid levels are okay... did you have a service engine light on before this happened?

From you describing that the engine starts and then stalls and a whine from the belt with smoke....

Serpentine belt condition? Was the smoke really smoke or water vapor/steam?

Where was the smoke coming from?

There are a myriad of things that could be happening... let's examine before thinking that the engine is toast.

Mileage on this car? and is this auto or manual?
