Remanufactured Engines from Bessler Auto Parts
The engine is the most vital part of a car, SUV, van, or pickup. Replacing it is a tall order, and a costly one, but your options include remanufactured systems. These are completely refurbished and installed so your vehicle can keep going. We do not rebuild engines. Instead, we completely remanufacture them; here is a look at how this process works and its benefits.
What Is a Remanufactured Engine?
Rebuilt engines are fixed only up to where they need to be. The repair work typically only goes up to the level of where a previous failure occurred. What does remanufactured mean? A remanufactured system is completely disassembled down to its most basic parts. Technicians then clean, inspect, and re-machine everything before reassembly. Every functional aspect of the engine is then tested to ensure it meets or exceeds OEM standards.
How Is a Remanufactured Engine Different from a Rebuild Engine?
Remanufacturing involves more than replacing some worn parts. In the process, known defects are eliminated, so the engine may end up being higher in quality than when originally produced.
The original blueprints and specifications are used. The engine is also tested to a higher level of expectations. Once the process is complete, this ensures it performs well and that end users can be guaranteed their vehicles will run dependably.
Also, the remanufacturing of engines is done by industry experts. For example, Bessler relies on APS Manufacturing, a world leader in engine remanufacturing. That’s another consideration when you look at a remanufactured vs. rebuilt engine.
The Advantages of Remanufactured Engines
They have many advantages over used engines and used engine parts. An engine that is removed from one vehicle and placed in another has a high mileage; while generally lower in cost, it typically has a short warranty and is at risk of short-term issues. Rebuilt engines can have flaws not detected during the repair process since it doesn’t go beyond where the engine failed previously.
The advantages of a remanufactured engine include:
- A high level of quality and benefits in terms of price
- A higher degree of performance
- Additional parts to ease installation
- Availability of late-model units for domestic/foreign vehicles
- Availability for most makes/models between 1985 and 2006
- Easier to sell than rebuilt models
- Parts/labor warranty (36-month/100,000 miles from Bessler)
Remanufactured vs. Refurbished: Which One Should I Choose?
Choosing a remanufactured over a refurbished engine isn’t always easy. While a remanufactured one may cost more, it is generally more reliable, lasts longer, and is covered under a more substantial warranty. There are pros and cons to both. However, with a remanufactured one, you reduce the risk of the warranty running out and something going wrong soon after the installation.
It’s important to understand the difference between refurbished and remanufactured if you plan to replace the engine in your vehicle. Recycled engine parts have an uncertain lifespan but, if you’re considering refurbished or rebuilt engines, it can pay to go with a remanufactured one that has been completely disassembled, repaired, and put back together.
