What Is An Engine Rebuild?

Have you been experiencing problems with your engine, like unsettling smells and noises? Even if you have caught up with regular maintenance services, normal wear and tear and adding miles to your vehicle could lead to engine problems.


Signs You Have An Engine Problem

  • Excess exhaust smoke coming out of the tailpipe
  • Strange knocking sounds coming from under the hood
  • Oil is going bad quicker than normal
  • Engine overheating

Even though you may experience the above signs, it does not mean your vehicle is on its last leg. Your engine could still be saved with engine repairs or rebuild. If the opportunity is possible, an engine rebuild is much more cost-effective than a replacement or buying a new car.


What Happens During An Engine Rebuild?

To fix your engine issues, a mechanic will first have to remove the engine block and disassemble it. They will inspect the parts individually and clean them. Next, they will replace the damaged parts with new or refurbished parts that meet OEM standards. The components can include piston rings, bearings, gaskets, seals, camshafts, crankshafts, etc. Next, they'll recondition the internal surfaces to form a proper seal before reassembling the engine and installing it back into the automobile.


Many auto technicians believe that a rebuilt engine can be better than the initial engine because it gets carefully inspected and cleaned piece by piece. When you get engine services from a professional auto repair shop, your motor will be more reliable and backed up by a warranty.
