FAQ

If your car or truck is burning oil, smoking, making odd noises, leaking fluids, overheating, or showing other tell-tale symptoms, you should get it checked.

A used car is often an unknown. Is it really any better than your old one? Do you know its inside story? Can you get a good warranty? There are good used cars out there, but remember you can buy a bigger problem than the one you have if you're not careful. Unless your current vehicle's body or chassis is really beyond repair, you should consider replacing the engine.

A rebuilt engine is a step in the right direction, but it is most often only a halfway solution. A rebuilt engine may have had damaged or worn parts changed, but other essential components may remain in "not new" condition. Even rebuilt engines with new bearings, rings, valves, and seals retain many older components, leading to shorter life expectancies for rebuilt engines.

A used engine usually costs considerably less than the price of a remanufactured engine, although the installation cost is the same and the warranties typically run from 30 to 90 days only, and don't cover labor. Most important, the engine is just what you could get with a used vehicle power unit, uncertain quality and life expectancy.

You're driving along in your vehicle and suddenly a yellow light illuminates on your dash telling you to check or service your engine. If you're like most car owners, you have little idea about what that light is trying to tell you or exactly how you should react.

This is the most misunderstood indicator on your dashboard, the "check engine" light can mean many different things, from a loose gas cap to a seriously misfiring engine.

It doesn't mean you have to pull the car over to the side of the road and call a tow truck. It does mean you should get the car checked out as soon as possible.

Ignore the warning, and you could end up damaging expensive components. It also can be a sign that your car is getting poor fuel economy and emitting higher levels of pollutants.
