Car & Truck Engine Replacement Cleveland, GA
The engine is the heart and soul of your car or truck, but over time the cylinder walls, seals, gaskets, pistons or valves wear and become damaged. An aging engine causes excessive fuel consumption, engine burning oil, rough idle, complete failure and power loss or even a potentially dangerous or hazardous situation which could cause an accident. We’re able to diagnose the potential problems associated with your engine and pinpoint exactly what went wrong and how to fix or replace the situation.
If the engine in your car or truck is damaged beyond repair you’ll usually have one of two options moving forward. Either rebuild your engine or replace your engine with a new or used unit. An engine rebuild is often not as costly as one might think but a factory replacement guarantees OEM service with a manufacturer warranty.
Should I replace my engine with a new or used engine?
When it comes time to replace a worn engine as we mentioned earlier, you’ll have the option of using a new or used engine. The benefit of using a used, often junkyard engine, is obviously the initial cost of the engine. But these junkyard replacement engines could be a gamble because you don’t know the history of the engine in question. If there are no long term plans to keep the vehicle, this might be an economical option for your car or truck engine swap. However, make sure you declare the differing mileage of the engine if you plan to sell your vehicle.
A factory new engine replacement is the best option for a long lasting, reliable engine. These engines often come with a factory warranty against defects and will even increase the value of your vehicle in the event of a resale because the engine effectively has zero mileage at the time of the engine replacement. These are our favorite engine swaps in our Cleveland, GA auto repair shop a because of our close relationships with local dealerships, we could ensure a like factory, quality engine swap for your vehicle.
