Remanufactured engines are often even superior to new car engines because better parts are used or design changes to parts fix problems with the original engine. Remanufactured engines are reliable, dependable and backed by the engine manufacturer's warranty program. If you have engine damage, whether or not it can be repaired depends on the extent of the damage. If the damage is minimal and some parts can be replaced, the problem can be solved. However, if the damage is extensive and irreparable, you may need a complete engine replacement.
So what happens when you overhaul an engine? With a completely overhauled engine, the engine block is removed from the vehicle and completely disassembled. After cleaning and inspection, damaged parts are replaced with new or reconditioned parts. All new gaskets, sealants and lubricants are used that meet OEM standards. An engine overhaul basically gives your engine a new life. Most engines degrade over time due to heat and normal wear and tear. Some engines degrade faster than others because they are driven too hard like a race car.
Many things can cause your engine to constantly overheat, but sometimes the damage is so severe that we need to service the engine, or at least part of it. After years of circulating coolant through the engine, the cooling system could fail and start leaking.
Your vehicle has an internal combustion engine, whether you drive a petrol or diesel vehicle. Basically, the fuel system forces the gas into the cylinders where it mixes with air and is ignited by the spark plugs. As the combustion mixture burns, the exhaust system removes the gases, allowing fresh air and fuel to enter the cylinders and detonate them.
Finally, one of the most common causes of engine failures, which can only be remedied by an engine check, is smearing damage. There's a reason auto mechanics recommend changing engine oil every 3,000 miles; prevents catastrophic damage (we mean it) to the engine. Old, dirty or insufficient engine oil cannot lubricate moving engine parts.
