The engine is the most expensive product in your chassis. And it becomes very heavy on the pocket to replace it as soon as it is faulty. Once you have established that the engine is damaged and can’t work further. You have options for buying a new engine or try reconditioned or recon engines. So here we will discuss how we can buy recon engines.
Before buying recon engines:
First, we need to understand what recon engines are. Ideally, in the reconditioned engines all the parts like the piston or the valves are replaced. But in reality, many of the sellers simply take an old working engine made some changes and tag it as recon engines. You need to avoid these sellers. Because a recon engine will have all parts are changed or upgraded.
Why go for reason engine?
The main reason to opt for a recon engine is the costing. These engines are 30% less then the actual engine and if bought from a reliable place these engines should last as long as the new one. Thus they are most cost-efficient. Now if your engine got damaged and there is no insurance to cover and no money to buy a new engine then recon engines are the saviour.
Before buying any recon engines here is the checklist which you can follow. There should not be any wear and tear. All the parts should be new. If you find any old belt, chain, gasket you need to raise the alarm because all the parts have to be replaced by a new one. The threads or bolts should look clean because if they are not the seller might be using old products which should not be done in the recon engine.
Lastly, do check whether the recon engine is fitting in your car. All the latest car has been upgraded and accordingly the chassis changes. If the fitting is not correct. Then spilling might happen and the engine might get damaged again so fitting of the engine is very crucial.
