As the name shows that rebuilt engines mean to build any engine again. If you did it properly, it means the engine is completely destroyed, old parts are replaced, cylinder bores restored, valves reground, and the engine is rebuilt. If the bottom of the engine is in ok condition, then there is a simpler option that can still give a good result by rebuilt only the cylinder head. Here in Auto Techio we provide the best quality rebuilt engine.
What happens when an engine is rebuilt
A rebuilt engine is a process in which firstly engine is removed from the vehicle and completely pull of it from which is commonly known as “carb to pan”. This is for older engines when engines had carburetors instead of fuel injection systems, but nowadays engines have fuel injection systems, so it would be referred as “injector to pan,” the pan being the oil pan. once the engine has been removed, cleaned and inspected, then all the damaged parts are replaced with new parts. All new gaskets, lubricants, and seals are used to assemble a rebuilt engine that will meet OEM standards.
Advantage of rebuilding
After the rebuilding of the engine, as you know that everything has been closely inspected and has many new parts which will extend the engines life. How it will long last depend on how many components were replaced. And the other benefit is that your recycled engine parts help you to reduce the amount of scrap in the environment.
Even, the great benefit of engine rebuilding is the connectivity and compatibility with the electric system. The ECU is specially programmed to communicate with the engine which is originally installed in the vehicle. Some cases it happened that when a new engine is installed, the ECU has some problem in connecting with the new engine. In most of the cases, the engine will require either a reprogramming of ECU or replacement.
If you have the choice between a repair or replacement, always select repair the existing engine with new, OEM replacement parts. it is always advised to OEM replacement parts to reduce the potential of compatibility issues.
Differences between rebuilt and remanufactured
Really it is difficult to select between a remanufactured engine and a rebuilt engine, and there is the necessity to know all the pros and cons of both types of engines to decide. You should aware about the general things that you should consider before you finally select any one of them. So here we are going to differentiate between rebuilt and remanufactured engine.
In the remanufacturing process, the remanufactured engine is remanufactured to the original blueprint and exact specification, also tested by original equipment standards.
In other hands rebuilding an engine is a detailed process which includes the cleaning and assessment of short block, replacement of piston rings, bearings other components in addition to reconditioning of the cylinders.
