    4 Things To Check When Buying A used engine


    Used engines can be a great way to save money when buying a replacement engine for your vehicle.

    However, it's important that you don't end up with a lemon - and not just from a financial perspective. When an engine fails in the middle of nowhere, you'll probably end up having to replace it anyway - so why waste money in advance?

    1. Borescope Inspection Camera

    The first thing to do when buying a used engine is to inspect it with an endoscope, also known as a borescope camera inspection. This allows you to look for any signs of serious damage, such as cracks.

    An endoscope is small and light enough that you can insert the lens into the aperture (in this case cylinder head intake), allowing you to take photos inside the component without having to break it down piece by piece. The lens captures images which are then displayed on another monitor - allowing you to see cracks in metal components that might otherwise have been invisible.

    2. Compression Test

    Compression testing is a quick and easy way to determine the engine's efficiency.

    It involves taking a sample of engine oil from the dipstick/filler tube, warming it up to operating temperature, then cranking the engine for about five seconds.

    3. Coolant Check - Inspect cooling passages. Cast iron blocks are especially prone to rust and corrosion. Ensure there isn?isn?t any orange corrosion

    The next thing you'll want to inspect is the coolant passages as they can be either clogged or corroded by minerals in tap water systems resulting in reduced heat transfer rates, decreasing its performance and due to blockages can create back pressure that may blow out gaskets or cause leaks into cylinders causing engine failure.

    4. Basic Engine Inspection - make sure there are no signs of a cracked block or impact damage. leaking oil?

    Once you've done all this, it's time to have a look around the outside of the engine for external damage, while listening closely to identify strange noises, such as rattles or clunks. Make sure that none of the gaskets are blown out and there is no debris visible in the engine bay. Check for any leaks underneath the vehicle too.

    Good luck on your engine hunt! This information should help you find that perfect replacement at your local scrap yard.
