To the Editor,
Some of the worst winter weather seen in years can have a destructive impact on a vehicle’s engine. Hard starts, sub-zero temperatures and improper fluid levels or usage can shorten the life of a vehicle by damaging its engine. Many motorists may think their only option is to purchase a new vehicle, but a damaged engine doesn’t have to be the end of the car you love.

Repowering your current engine is a sensible option that makes economic sense, extending vehicle life and saving the price of a new vehicle. For the cost of an average down payment on a new car or truck, you can repower your current vehicle, gaining years of reliable service and improved fuel economy all without monthly car payments and higher insurance rates. 

With repowering, a vehicle’s engine or an identical one from another like-vehicle is completely disassembled, cleaned, machined and remanufactured/rebuilt.  Unlike used or junk yard engines with an unknown performance and maintenance history, repowered engines are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs. To learn more about engine repowering, visit www.enginerepower.org.
