Subaru Engine Second Hand vs Re-Manufactured

Second Hand Subaru Engines warning!

  • Second hand engines normally come from wrecked or accident damaged vehicles.
  • The condition of these engines is uncertain and they may not be good value for money.
  • Possible additional hidden costs are hidden within warranty conditions excluding such items as front seals, timing belts and water pumps.
  • Most second hand warranty claims result in poor outcomes.
  • Service history is usually unknown as most wrecked vehicles are offered without consulting the previous owner.
  • Claimed km’s are not a reliable indicator of an engine’s condition, given possible poor service history
  • Subaru engines may all look the same, but they are not. Subtle differences can cause major problems during and after installation.
  • Second hand engines may have corrosion forming within the cylinder head gasket region and the only way to remove this and old cooling system water is to dismantle the engine completely (as occurs during reconditioning).
  • Some fuels have corrosive properties. Second hand engines can have abnormal or aggressive wear on cylinder walls and piston rings.
  • Some specific model engines have known inherited problems, such as oil consumption; this cannot be addressed in a second hand engine without dismantling and reconditioning.
