BETHESDA, Md., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- October is Fall Car Care Month, the perfect time to talk with an automotive technician to see if repowering your vehicle with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine is the right choice for you, says the Engine Rebuilders Council (ERC).
"Before severe winter weather arrives, it is a good idea to make sure your vehicle's engine is running effectively and efficiently," said Rick Simko, chairman of the Engine Rebuilders Council. "If you find that your car or truck is experiencing major engine damage, but is in relatively good shape otherwise, consider repowering it with a rebuilt engine so you know you can count on it when the temperatures drop."
With rebuilding, 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.
"In addition to making your vehicle more dependable, a rebuilt engine gets better gas mileage and emits fewer pollutants than a worn out engine," continued Simko. "It's a sensible solution and much more cost effective than purchasing a new or used car."
