    4 Things To Check When Buying A used engine






    If you're thinking about buying a used car engine from a scrap yard in South Africa, there are certain things that you should check to make sure it's not faulty. A professional mechanic should be able to help you with those checks and they will know what to look for. You can also do the checks yourself and these four things will help:



    1. Borescope Inspection Camera - This looks like a flexible tube which has a camera on one end and it allows you to inspect the cylinders of the engine closely. It might seem like it's difficult but once you've done it once or twice, I don't think it'll be such an issue anymore. The borescope inspection camera lets you check if there are signs of wear and tear on the cylinders of the engine. You can use a borescope inspection camera to check for rust and corrosion as well.

    2. Compression Test - This is a quick way to determine if there are problems with the powertrain. You put it in gear while going around 30km/h and then step on the brake firmly while still applying throttle, this will result in compression numbers that you can compare to other engines. The numbers should be close enough so that you know you've got yourself one good engine! It's important to make sure that there aren't any leaks when doing this test, otherwise it'll give inaccurate results.

    3. Coolant Check - Inspecting cooling passages is really important. Cast iron blocks are especially prone to rust and corrosion. Ensure there isn't any orange corrosion around the block, something like this would be a big problem.

    4. Basic Engine Inspection - Make sure there are no signs of a cracked block or impact damage. Also look out for leaks as well as oil stains under the engine bay as well as around the gearbox and clutch components, because those could indicate problems with those parts as well.
