Low-Mileage Engines

The majority of our engines are low-mileage. When we buy cars, we consider not only how many miles the car has on it, but also the type of miles (city or highway), as that has an effect on the engine as well.

Ask us to verify mileage before you purchase your car engine. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the motor you’re considering.

Guaranteed Compression Test

At American Dismantling, all of our motors go through a compression test. This is part of our standard inspection and diagnostics testing, which includes checking the car or truck’s VIN number and service records, doing a deep inspection under the hood, looking for oil leaks and checking for odd smells, and test driving, among other things.

A compression test basically shows how much pressure is being exerted. It measures the condition of a engine’s valves, valve seats, piston rings, and whether these parts are wearing evenly.

A “healthy” car engine should have compression over 100 psi per cylinder, with no more than a 10% variation between the highest and lowest readings.

The Value Of Car Motors

There are quite a few reasons to purchase a good used engine instead of buying a brand new one. Consider these benefits:

  • A new engine will need to be broken in at least 1,000 miles. A used car motor will likely already be broken in.
  • It’s easier to find a used engine for your exact car model.
  • You will definitely save money. A new engine will be double or triple the cost of a used one.

If you’re looking to spend less, then a used car engine is absolutely the better choice over a new one.

Must-Ask Questions About Junkyard Engines For Sale

When purchasing a used engine, there are five questions that you must ask in order to get a quality part:

  • Has the used car engine been tested?
