Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions About Engine Rebuilds

Answers to Your Frequently Asked Questions About Engine Rebuilds

Many people are not that familiar with car repairs. And one of the lesser discussed repairs is engine repairs. However, as a car owner, it's one that you may find yourself wanting or needing at some point in time. Today we're tackling some of the most frequently asked questions about engine rebuilds. 

Why Would a Car's Engine Need to Be Rebuilt?

There are two primary reasons why an engine may need to be rebuilt. You may have blown a gasket, cracked the engine block or caused other damage. If your car is relatively new or has low mileage, repairing the engine may be a better option than replacing the entire car. The other reason why you may have an engine rebuilt is because you simply want to. Rebuilt engines can be customized to get better gas mileage or go faster. Why not be bigger, better, faster stronger? 

Rebuilt engines can be customized to get better gas mileage or go faster. That's what so many custom cars have rebuilt engines.

Are There Signs that I Might Need a Rebuild?

If your engine needs to be rebuilt out of necessity, you may be wondering if there are any signs indicative of engine problems that you should be aware of. If you hear a knocking sound while driving the car, have excessive amounts of smoke coming out of the exhaust system, burn oil quickly, use too much fuel or begin to have compression loss, you likely have an engine problem. An auto body shop can determine if the engine needs a minor repair or if a more extensive repair, such as an engine rebuild, is needed.

Is it Worth it to Rebuild an Engine?

Unfortunately, rebuilding an engine is not a cheap task. It is often quite expensive and can cost $1,000 or more. However, in some cases, it may be worth it to start from the ground up. Generally speaking, if the value of the car exceeds the repair costs, it's worth it. Additionally, if you want to hold on to the car for sentimental reasons, rebuilding the engine is the best way to keep your prized possession up and running. Ultimately, only you can decide if you want to put that kind of money into a car based on its value, age, condition and your attachment to the car.
