Research used engines online. It’s always reassuring to have a firm knowledge on what kind of engine you’re looking for and its availability to you before walking into a salvage yard blind.
Reach out to salvage yards and businesses to compare prices. Just as you compare prices for televisions or washers, prices can vary and knowing the competition can give you an upper hand in a possible negotiation.
Ask questions. Once you find an engine that could suit your needs, it’s important to ask every question you can think of about the engine. What’s the mileage? What was the typical use of the car that had it previously? If they can offer you a free history report, take it.
Do they offer warranties? Warranties leave you with peace of mind. A free warranty can mean the difference between shopping for another engine on your own dime or theirs.
It’s important to not be afraid of asking the hard questions. Reputable auto salvage yards will have professionally trained mechanics that will give you the answers and help you are looking for.
