COMMON QUESTIONS REGARDING ENGINE AND GEARBOX REPLACEMENTS
IS A REPLACEMENT ENGINE CHEAPER THAN FIXING A WRECKED ENGINE
One of the most obvious and sought after benefits of buying a used engine is the significant cost savings. Depending on the year and model of your vehicle, the cost of a new engine can vary drastically. This can end up being a price that is a lot more than you bargained for.
