"When a car or truck suffers major engine damage, often the first reaction of most consumers is to buy a new or used vehicle, but the cost to repower an engine is a drop in the bucket compared to monthly payments on a new car," said Tom Schrader, chairman of the Engine Repower Council. "The bottom line is that a repowered engine makes a vehicle more dependable, more fuel efficient, less polluting and more valuable."
With repowering, your engine or an identical one from another like-vehicle is completely remanufactured/rebuilt. Also, unlike installing a used or junk yard engine, critically important internal parts get replaced with new ones that meet or exceed original equipment performance standards.
Frequently, remanufactured/rebuilt engines are better than the new engines installed at the factory because the original factory engine problems have been redesigned or repaired with better quality parts. They are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs that also usually cover installation expenses.
The Engine Repower Council is a nonprofit organization that educates consumers about the economic and environmental benefits of remanufactured/rebuilt engines. The Engine Repower Council supports the "Be Car Care Aware" consumer education campaign.
