High-Quality Low Mileage Used Engines For Sale

High-Quality Used Engines for Sale

A car's engine is the most important, and many times the most expensive, part that you need to regularly maintain and care for. If your engine is shot, your car is too—or is it? If you have an engine that's driven a few too many miles, you can buy a high-quality replacement used engine from Patriot Engines and keep your auto running.

On this page, we'll discuss how to tell you need a new engine, why you should buy one from us online, and how to choose the right engine for your car.

The Benefits of Buying Used Engines Online

It's true that for most people, buying a used engine isn't even a thought. However, a used engine can be a valuable resource for those looking to save money—replacing your engine is almost always far more affordable than replacing your entire vehicle.

Replacing your engine can also breathe new life into your car. Modern engines are expected to last about 100,000 miles when brand-new, and depending on the quality and previous use of the used engine you choose, you could squeeze another hundred thousand out of it as well. Of course, that all depends on the quality of your engine, so make sure to buy it from a reputable dealer like Patriot Engines.

Reasons You May Need To Buy A Used Engine

If your engine goes, and you're not ready to replace the whole automobile yet, you might have to look at a used engine. Three things that tend to cause this confluence of events include
  • A cracked block: When the engine block cracks, that engine is finished. While there are a few reasons a block will crack, the most common by far is engine overheating. When the engine gets too hot, it can crack the metal engine block, causing the engine to lose power. When that happens, there's no fixing the engine, and you'll need a new one.
  • High mileage or high wear and tear: The older an engine gets and the more miles it drives, the more wear and tear it goes through. Eventually, the cylinder rings will wear down, oil will leak, and gaskets will blow. When the engine is damaged enough, it's time to send it to the great garage in the sky—rebuilding it or getting a used engine are the only options.
  • Collision: If you get in a car crash and the front end of your car is damaged, like in a head-on collision or when hitting a tree, you might have to replace the engine. If insurance is paying, it typically means getting a used motor.

Various Makes and Models of Used Engines for Sale

There are about as many makes and models of used engines as there are cars on the market today. If you think about it, that makes sense: every car on the road has a motor onboard (or at least every gasoline-powered car), so there's a used motor available for your vehicle no matter what kind you may have.
At Patriot Engines, we have a huge selection of high-quality used engines, including the following:
  • Used Hyundai engines
  • Used KIA engines
  • Used Land Rover engines
  • Used BMW engines

Expert Advice: Choosing the Right Used Engine

When looking for a used engine, it's crucial to find the right one for your needs. As you shop, look for the following considerations:
  • The engine should have all its parts and components in place, and they should be in good working condition.
  • Make sure you buy the right type of engine for your car.
  • Buy an engine with the correct number of cylinders. Engines come with anywhere from 3 to 12 cylinders, so be on the lookout for the right number.
  • Another consideration is the type of ignition your engine needs—spark or compression.
  • Ask your dealer about a warranty and other guaranties.
  • Inspect the engine and its parts, and ask if any need replacing.
  • Make sure to buy from a reputable dealer, to ensure you're not buying stolen parts.

Used Engine Frequently Asked Questions

Are used engines good?

A used engine's quality depends on a number of factors, including its age, mileage, and condition. We inspect every one of our engines to ensure our customers buy the best possible used engine from us.

How long do used engines last?

How long a used engine will last depends greatly on its condition. Used engines can easily give a car another 100,000 miles of life, depending on how well you maintain your engine.

Is it cheaper to rebuild or replace an engine?

Rebuilding an engine will likely save you money when compared with a replacement. However, in both scenarios it's important to consider the cost of parts and labor, which you should discuss with your mechanic. Patriot Engines offers both used and remanufactured engines for sale, so we've got you covered either way!

Why would a car need a new engine?

There are a lot of reasons a car may need a new engine, including a cracked engine block, high mileage, high wear and tear, or a collision.

Does replacing an engine reset mileage?

In most cases, replacing an engine will not reset the odometer. In fact, that practice is illegal in many states! However, you should keep a record of the mileage when you replaced your engine, so that you can know how many miles you've driven on your new engine.

Does replacing an engine devalue a car?

Replacing a damaged car engine won't have any impact on a car's value unless that car is a hobbyist, antique, or show car—in which case replacing the engine might decrease the value depending on the market. Replacing your engine will give your car a new lease on life, though!
