Atlantic Salvage is always excited to help any new or returning customer find the used car parts they need at a competitive price- it’s why we’re here! We love watching you walk off our yard, satisfied with your purchase, but we also want you to be able to use your new but old engine for as long as possible. There are always standard tips for taking care of any engine, but we want you to watch out specifically for these two items when servicing your used engine in the future.
Check and change your oil. Regularly. Lubrication in used engines is a must, and checking your oil frequently means avoiding some of these common problems found in even the newest engines. The additional friction and other wears caused by untreated oil problems could mean damaging your used engine beyond repair.
Keep an eye on your antifreeze. One of the most common problems with older engines becomes overheating, and this is often caused by an engine coolant that is not maintained. Not only is this system integrated through the water pump and radiator, it can cause extensive corrosion and damage to your engine when not properly kept.
