National Car Care Month Perfect Time to Consider a Rebuilt Engine


Rebuilt Engines Emit Fewer Pollutants, Get Better Gas Mileage

BETHESDA, Md., March 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- April is National Car Care Month, an ideal time to talk with an automotive technician to see if repowering your vehicle with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine is the right choice for you. The Engine Rebuilders Council (ERC) reminds motorists that a remanufactured/rebuilt engine gets better gas mileage and emits fewer pollutants than a worn out engine.

"With gasoline prices on the rise, National Car Care Month is the perfect time to make sure your vehicle's engine is running effectively and efficiently," said Ken Carter, chairman of the Engine Rebuilders Council. "If your car or truck is experiencing major engine damage, but is in relatively good shape otherwise, repowering it with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine will help stretch your dollars at the pump. It's a sensible financial option, much more cost effective than purchasing a new or used car."

With repowering, a vehicle's engine or an identical one from another like-vehicle is completely disassembled, cleaned, machined and remanufactured/rebuilt. Unlike used or junk yard engines with an unknown performance and maintenance history, remanufactured/rebuilt engines are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs.

Remanufactured/rebuilt engines also save the tremendous amount of energy used in processing discarded engines and vehicles, as well as save an incredible amount of raw materials that would have been used in building a new engine.
