When a car or truck suffers major engine damage, the first reaction of most vehicle owners is to buy a new or used car or truck. This makes sense in some cases, but often, it isn’t necessary. Repowering your car or truck’s worn out engine with a rebuilt/remanufactured engine can also be considerably less expensive than buying a new or used car.
- A rebuilt engine is one that is remanufactured to prescribed standards and specifications by highly-skilled machinists using state-of-the-art equipment and components. During this process, many of the new components installed meet or exceed the original equipment performance standards. Frequently, rebuilt engines are superior to new car engines because better parts are used, or design changes in parts correct problems with the original engine. Rebuilt/remanufactured engines are dependable, reliable, and backed by warranty programs.
- A rebuilt engine gets better gas mileage than a worn-out engine and emits fewer pollutants. Engine repowering also saves energy related to processing discarded engines and cars.
- The savings from engine repowering is notable when compared to the prices of new cars and trucks. A rebuilt/remanufactured engine purchased and installed at an average cost of $2,500-$3,500 is a sound and attractive investment. Typically, a professionally rebuilt engine comes with a one-year or 12,000 mile warranty but some of these warranties can be as long as 36 months or 36,000 miles.
