Engine Replacement: When it’s Worth it and When it’s Time to Move On

Engine replacement is just what it sounds like– replacing your car’s failed engine with a new, used or rebuilt engine. The type of engine you decide to place in your car can affect the overall cost of the replacement, so engine replacement is really only feasible and makes sense financially in a few cases.

First, is your car worth less than the cost of the replacement engine plus labor? If not, it might be time to get rid of it for something more reliable. If your car still has a lot of life left in it, however, then an engine replacement can be a much more affordable option that will stretch the lifespan of your vehicle.

Second, have you looked at the tax advantages in your state? There are some areas that will give you a tax benefit for replacing an engine in your car. Have a tax advisor who knows your area look into this option for you.

Finally, do you want to go through the process of an engine replacement? This is the question that is crucial to a car owner. Knowing that an engine replacement can potentially double the lifespan of your car, you’ll want to make sure you’re comfortable staying with your car that long.
