The term, “engine repair,” often strikes a chord of fear in a vehicle owner’s mind. Because there are several engine repair options to consider, it can be overwhelming. The determining factor will mainly depend on the severity of damage to your engine. You may want to replace your engine, either with one that has been rebuilt or with a new engine. Rebuilding your existing engine is often the last resort.

There are two main reasons for rebuilding your engine rather than replacing it—the engine bearings have worn out, and the pistons are not seating well. The bearings that hold the moving parts of the engine can become worn out and need to be replaced. Also, when the piston rings wear out, they do not seat properly, creating blow-by, which allows oil to be burnt in the combustion chamber.

Do you know what happens when you rebuild an engine? The engine is removed from the vehicle, disassembled, and assessed for wear and tear. While some parts can be machined smooth, other parts may need to be replaced, such as the piston rings (the pistons themselves may also need to be replaced) and the bearings. Once all the components have been restored to good condition (or replaced), the engine is reassembled and installed back into the vehicle.

An engine rebuild may be necessary if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Burning oil – If you need to add oil in between oil changes, and you see blue exhaust smoke.
  • White exhaust smoke – White exhaust smoke (especially when the engine is cold) could be a sign of coolant mixing with the gasoline.
  • Knocking noises – Worn engine bearings will create knocking or chattering noises that go up and down with engine RPMs.

If you’re experiencing engine trouble, take your car into your auto shop as soon as possible. Your mechanic will be happy to discuss the engine repair options that are the best choice for your vehicle and for you financially.
