Repowered Engines Extend Vehicle Life, Improve Fuel Economy
BETHESDA, Md., July 19, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Everyone is looking to save these days. If you have an older vehicle that needs engine work, one way to repower your wallet is to repower your engine, according to the Engine Repower Council.
"Many people can't afford to buy a new vehicle right now," said Ken Carter, chairman of the Engine Repower Council. "Repowering is a sensible economic option that saves big money in the long run. For the cost of an average down payment on a new car or truck, you can repower your vehicle with a remanufactured/rebuilt engine and gain years of reliable service without monthly car payments and higher insurance rates."
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, repowered engines are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs.
"Repowered engines run more efficiently, getting better gas mileage than a worn out or junkyard used engine. This extra advantage will repower your wallet every time you fill up," continued Carter. "Now is the time to talk with an automotive technician to see if repowering your engine is the right choice for you."
