    5 Things To Check When Buying A used car engine
    Buying a used engine can be a good way of getting an engine at a cheaper price. But it can also be risky, especially if you do not know what to look out for before making the purchase.

    Here are six things you should check for before you buy a used car engine:

    1. Oil Quality Check

    This is one of the easiest things to check before you buy a used engine. If the oil looks dark and dirty, it's probably not a good idea to go ahead with the purchase! The oil should be clean and clear, which means that the engine was well-maintained throughout its life.

    2. Spark Plug Inspection

    Spark plugs help in the ignition of fuel injected in a car's cylinders. Used engines might need their spark plugs replaced, which can cost you money. Check whether the used engine comes with new spark plugs!

    If there are not any new spark plugs, then consider buying a new set and replacing them before you install the engine into your vehicle.

    3. Compression Testing

    Compression testing is another important test to check if you want to know how well an engine has been maintained throughout its life. You will need someone who knows how to do it or a special tool for this purpose: basically, compress the air by tightening the head bolts and see if more than one cylinder fails below specification (this means the engine has some serious problems).

    4. Leak-Down Testing

    This is a very important step in determining whether you should buy an engine or not. This process involves testing how well the valves and rings of the used engine are sealing, which will help you determine if there is any internal damage to the engine that could give you problems during operation.

    You can use a leak-down tester for this purpose: simply hook up the tool, pressurize it and turn it on so that air starts flowing through all cylinders and valves of the used car engine. If pressure escapes from anywhere other than where it's supposed to escape (the valves), then either new gaskets or valve seals will be needed. It might be a good idea to just buy a new used engine.

    5. Basic Engine Inspection

    Before you purchase the used engine, whether it's an imported or locally manufactured one, just look at its basic features. Check for any broken parts and if there are too many dents on it (which means that the previous owner was not as gentle as he could have been), then do not go ahead with the purchase! It's better to pay more and get the peace of mind that comes with having bought a previously well-maintained car engine; than end up spending money on unexpected repairs and maintenance after installing it in your vehicle.
