4 Car Engines Likely to be Replaced


4 Car Engines Likely to be Replaced Automotive engines are fascinating machines that are highly engineered to provide power and reliability for hundreds of thousands of miles. Well, that's generally the initial intent, anyway. Some motors are more likely to shoot a cylinder through the hood than get you to 100,000 miles on the odometer. The following engines have known issues, meaning you're destined to need an engine replacement if you put just barely too much stress or miles onto it.

Subaru 2.5 liter

The Subaru 2.0, but more so the 2.5 liter boxer engine in 2011-2015 model year vehicles has been under the radar of mechanics as being a machine that loves to eat oil. Right off the lot it was noted that many of the vehicles with these motors required the addition of oil every few thousand miles. The issue came to a head in 2016 when Subaru admitted the car had oil issues and agreed to reimburse owners for repair costs associated with the problem.

Mitsubishi 3 cylinder

Mitsubishi's 1.2 liter, 3-cylinder engine used in models such as the Mirage is not exactly known for power. At just 78 horsepower the motor ensures difficult acceleration and a near-inability to pass on a highway. The racket it's cited as making is a sure sign that this is an engine without a long shelf life.

Dodge 2.2

In the late 1970s and early 1980s Chrysler Corporation was struggling to stay afloat. It was during this critical era that the 2.2 liter engine was released, and quickly became noted for rod-knocks. The issue only got worse once a turbo was added to the motor.

Chevrolet Ecotec

Pre-2006 Chevrolet 2.2 liter Ecotec engines lived up to their name, assuming Ecotec stands for economically technical. The engines were supposed to provide basic reliability, but they more often provided a surefire trip to the auto shop for new timing chains or to replace blown head gaskets.

If you drive a vehicle that has one of these engines you may find yourself waiting for a tow truck more often than actually driving the vehicle. Perhaps a used or rebuilt engine is in your future?
