Don’t Spend More Than You Need To!
No one wants to hear, “You’re going to have to replace the engine.” That’s because replacing an engine can cost big bucks – like THOUSANDS of bucks. In addition to being expensive, replacing an engine can take a long time, which means your vehicle off the road for a long time. So we’ve come up with a solution to help you replace an engine quickly and easily.
There are a variety of reasons why you may need to replace an engine. Engines can fail from normal wear and tear, but many times owner neglect can quickly send an engine to its death. In fact, Forbes.com listed several top maintenance-neglects that cause engine failure. These include: ignoring the check engine light, putting off changing your oil, neglecting your vehicle’s coolant fluids, continuing to drive an overheated car and not changing the vehicle’s fuel or air filters. These issues can lead to excessive oil consumption, knocking or tapping sounds, low oil pressure, low compression and oil leaking into the air cleaner and/or radiator.
It’s a very expensive repair to replace an engine. It tops many lists as the most expensive repair a vehicle owner can make. Replacing an engine will cost thousands of dollars, guaranteed. Plus, the repair usually isn’t covered by insurance and unless your vehicle is under warranty, buying a brand new engine just doesn’t make economic sense. A brand new, factory-grade, is expensive. Really expensive. Often a new engine will cost at least twice as much as a recycled (also called used) one.
Here’s where PartCycle can help cushion that blow. PartCycle sells replacement engines for way less than new – like 50 percent less. Thousands of engines can be found online and all come with a 180-day warranty. PartCycle sells both recycled and remanufactured engines. Compare these prices of new, OEM engines bought online to PartCycle’s prices.

A recycled engine is one that is pulled from a dismantled vehicle. A professional auto recycler, like those found on PartCycle.com, expertly removes and inventories the engine. The part is tested then stored indoors with all of the vehicle’s information, like the VIN. This allows the auto recycler to let the customer know what vehicle the engine came out of and how many miles were on it before it was pulled.
A remanufactured engine is one that is rebuilt by highly-skilled machinists with new parts to high standards and specifications. Remanufactured engines are sometimes better than engines originally installed by the manufacturer, come with a warranty and are cheaper.
Both recycled and remanufactured engines are a better alternative to new and both are available on PartCycle.com. PartCycle makes it easy to find new parts. There are millions of parts online to search from and you can compare options and prices nationwide. What’s more, you can buy several parts from different sellers all from one place, PartCycle..
