One of the hardest decisions for an automobile owner can be whether or not it is worth replacing an engine on an older car. Is it more cost efficient to rebuild an engine on an older vehicle, or replacing it completely with a new vehicle? Both have obvious advantages and disadvantages. Buying a new car completely is expensive; replacing an engine also involves a certain level of risk. Each situation is different but it can be a very cost efficient way of moving forward for longer than you might expect.
Recently we had a 2000 Ford ranger in our Goodyear store with 82,000 miles on it. Replacing the engine was down to a number of reasons with the main one being the radiator cracked whilst the customer was driving causing head gasket failure and the engine cylinders and engine oil to be filled with coolant. This caused a loss of compression for multiple cylinders. In this case, the car was towed in and is currently been repaired.
