Is replacing your engine worth it?

It’s a tragic moment.  That moment when you either decide to replace your engine or send it away to the junkyard.  You might have spent a lot of time and made family memories your vehicle was a part of.  Maybe your car even had a name you gave it.  We understand.

car engineIf you were told that your engine needs replacing get a second opinion. It is a major expense, don’t treat it lightly. Even the best experts out there are wrong from time to time.  This is not a minor repair; it’s a major investment.  Better safe than sorry.

Once you have the confirmation from two reliable sources, it’s decision time.  It comes down to your budget. Consider the age of your vehicle, other deferred repairs, and the amount of money you can reasonably spend on repairs given the value of the vehicle.

Next, consider both a new and rebuilt engine. Again, weigh the options and the cost against the Blue Book value of your car.  Average cost with labor can range from $3,000 to $5,000.  Your average new vehicle will run anywhere from $15,000 to $25,000 depending on your needs.
