New Engine/ rebuild?

Hi guys,
My 7.40i has 180000 miles or close to that, its a 1995. I've been told that the cars run forever if maintained properly. Should I invest in a new Engine? Someone told me with that high of millage it would be best to replace it. I'm not sure since I am not really a pro at this car stuff. If I do have to replace it/rebuild it any Ideas Where I should start?
Thanks

Is it running well, does it burn oil? If it's in good shape, there's no need for a rebuild or replacement.

That seems okay, certainly no need for extreme repair.
