What Are The Most Common Causes Of A Blown Engine?

The most common cause of a blown engine is damage from overheating, followed by low motor oil levels. Catastrophic engine damage can also occur due to broken timing belts, misfires, and other preventable problems. Keep up with your preventative maintenance to avoid a blown engine.

Can You Drive With A Faulty Engine?

You shouldn’t drive a car that has engine problems. Poor engine performance, bad fuel efficiency, or just having a check engine light on are all signs that you need to get to your local auto repair shop.

Consider calling for a tow if you’re unsure if driving is safe.

When to Go with an Engine Replacement Instead

When catastrophic engine damage occurs, repairs are only sometimes a viable solution. Our team will always do what we can to save your engine, but sometimes, it’s better to go with an engine replacement. We source all our replacement engines from Jasper, a leader in the remanufactured engine, transmission, and differential industry. Our Groveland auto repair shop is also a preferred Jasper installer, so you know you’ll always get the best quality of service and support.

Is It Worth Rebuilding A Bad Engine?

When internal damage arises, engine replacements are your best bet. Rebuilding the engine will typically cost far more in parts and labor than a quality engine replacement. Save the engine rebuilds for rare powerplants in collector vehicles and get a replacement for commuters and fleet vehicles.

Often, major engine issues can be prevented by completing all the factory-recommended maintenance services on time. From oil changes and tune-ups to timing belt replacements and cooling system flushes, each service helps protect the parts in your motor from excessive wear and damage.

If you’re unsure when to come in, ask our team for help. We’ll follow your carmaker’s service interval recommendations to create a preventative maintenance schedule that suits your needs. Then, we’ll complete all your maintenance as needed using quality parts and fluids.
