Top Reasons to Replace an Engine

 

Top Reasons to Replace an EngineReplacing a car engine isn't something that most vehicle owners will have to do in their vehicle's lifetime, but it can come up. Why though? Engines are designed to be strong machines that can handle day in and day out abuse as they power your car or truck down the road. Well, they aren't fail proof, but they can handle some serious workload. Here are three of the top reasons you may need to replace a car engine.

Cracked Block

There are several reasons an engine block may crack, but the number one issue, and by far the most common, is excessive heat. If the cooling system is unable to regulate the operating temperature of the motor it is going to continue to rise in temperature as it operates. The metal that the block is cast from can handle only so much heat. A cracked block means you will lose nearly all power from the engine, if it doesn't cause it to completely shut off.

High Mileage Wear and Tear

As the miles climb on the odometer the engine is going to suffer from general wear and tear. Ever routine maintenance can't prevent all of the friction and heat that the engine suffers from. Cylinder rings will wear, oil will leak, gaskets will blow, damage will be done. It is basically inevitable. Once the engine hit a certain point of damage, there is no turning back. It is going to need a rebuild or a replacement.

Collision Damage

Less commonly, but still very possible, a car is hit so hard in the front that the engine is actually damaged in the collision. If the car is to be put back on the road, which is not very likely if the engine has suffered physical damage, the motor is more than likely going to be replaced to ensure it is returned to a pre-accident condition.
