National Car Care Month: A Perfect Time to Consider A Rebuilt Engine

By Staff | Apr 11, 2012

To the editor:

With gasoline prices on the rise, it’s important to make sure your vehicle’s engine is running effectively and efficiently. April is National Car Care Month and an ideal time to talk with a professional automotive technician to see if repowering your vehicle with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine is the right choice for you.

A rebuilt engine gets better gas mileage and emits fewer pollutants than a worn out engine. If your car or truck is experiencing major engine damage, but is in relatively good shape otherwise, repowering it with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine is a sensible financial option that is much more cost effective than purchasing a new or used car.

With repowering, a vehicle’s engine or an identical one from another like-vehicle is completely disassembled, cleaned, machined and remanufactured/rebuilt. Unlike used or junkyard engines with an unknown performance and maintenance history, remanufactured/rebuilt engines are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs.
