Can I Afford To Replace An Engine?

The engine is the heart of the car. So when the engine fails, the car dies. It can seem like a catastrophic situation for the car owner. But all is not lost. You can still get back on the road! There are two ways to do this:

  1. Replace the engine
  2. Buy a new car

Replacing the engine sounds quite intimidating. So a lot of people tend to avoid that option and instead splurge on a new car. The thing is, replacing the engine is much easier than it sounds. Modern engines are designed to be drop-in units. So an engine replacement is somewhat of a routine job at shops these days.

Are you hesitant to buy a new car, but worried that you can’t afford a new engine? The good news is that you can probably afford to replace your engine. Read on to find out how. In this post, we’ll debunk several myths:

  • It’s difficult to replace an engine
  • You have to spend thousands of dollars upfront for a new engine
  • Replacing an engine is expensive
  • It’s easier to buy a new car

Even when you factor in labor, an engine replacement is far, far cheaper than buying a new (or new to you) vehicle. A quality replacement engine can cost as little as $1,800 (at Powertrain Products). Factor in labor, and you’ll pay only a few thousand dollars to put a new engine into your vehicle.

If you want a new (or new to you) car that doesn’t come with a host of problems, expect to pay more than $15,000. These days, a lot of new trucks and SUVs cost about $40,000-$60,000. That’s a lot of money compared to an engine replacement.

A car that costs only a few thousand dollars likely needs a lot of expensive repairs. So if you have a few thousand dollars to spend, a replacement engine is a much better investment than a cheap car.

You’re probably saying, “But if I buy a car, I don’t have to pay a lot of money upfront. I can just finance it.”

But, did you know you can finance a replacement engine!
