It’s getting close to the end of summer and is a busy time for most people—fitting in that last road trip for a little fun before the rigid schedule of fall activities sets in. Your vehicle has been working hard during the hot temperatures of summer. In addition to the problems caused by just regular wear and tear from added miles and age, problems will develop caused from poor maintenance, lubrication problems, or excessive overheating. Don’t forget to take care of your car with a quality engine service! Watch for the signs of problems that if not detected early and taken care of as soon as possible could result in an inconvenient and costly engine repair.   

Some symptoms you may start to notice:

  • A smoking muffler;
  • Burning oil;
  • Knocking or tapping sounds;
  • Low oil pressure; low compression;
  • Water mixing in oil;
  • Oil leaking into the air cleaner and/or radiator.

Many vehicle owners simple want to purchase a new vehicle when faced with major engine repair. This simply avoids the problem. A vehicle that needs a major engine repair is hard to sell. If you consider the “hidden” costs of purchasing a new vehicle versus disposing of your current vehicle, it may not be the best decision for you and your budget!Be sure to ask your engine service specialist about all the engine repair options so you can make an informed decision.

What should you consider when comparing the cost of repair over a new vehicle?

  • The retail price of custom rebuilt or factory remanufactured engine plus the labor to install it.
  • The cost of replacing thermostat, water pump, and disposable automotive parts, including spark plugs, ignition wires, belts, hoses, filters and gaskets.  
  • The purchase price of a new vehicle

Are there benefits of Engine Repair over purchasing a new vehicle?

When considering the price of a new vehicle, replacing your current engine with a remanufactured or rebuilt unit is typically the most reliable and cost effective choice.  Often, a rebuilt engine gets better gas mileage, emits fewer pollutants, and saves the energy used to process discarded engines and vehicles.
 
Tip to Remember:  Before making a final decision, consider all the options and costs for engine repair versus the cost of purchasing a new veicle.
