The Shop-Anything Automotive
THE SHOP-ANYTHING AUTOMOTIVE, is by far the best mechanic chop I have ever been to. I got involved with some shady mechanics, haven't we all, and I had problems with my cars that on-one was willing to touch or even begin to try and fix. Jay (Owner of the Shop) really saved my bacon he had it all up and running for an unimaginably low price. I can't go anywhere and get that level of expertise for the price. He truly is an honest mechanic; that can be hard to find these days. I would recommend him to anyone I truly care about of fine craftsmanship at a decent price. Jay is the most talented and honest mechanic I have ever meet! Give him a try, you wont be disappointed.Sincearly, Buba
Tips & Advices
With the proper maintenance and adherence to driving within in the guidelines of engine performance designations, remanufactured engines can last 100,000 miles or more. With modern technology, engine lifespans have dramatically increased over the years. It is not uncommon for engines to last 200,000- 300,000 miles, or more--before a rebuild or remanufacture is even necessary.
While remanufactured and crate engines are very similar, there are several key differences. The biggest difference is that crate engines are as close to new as possible, without actually being new. Everything internal is replaced, which is not always the case with a remanufactured engine. Second, crate engines do not have to meet factory original specs. Some are upgraded to high performance engines through specialty shops. Crate engines are ready for immediate installation. These factors tend to make their price point higher than for a remanufactured engine. Adherence to factory specs is the biggest difference; remanufactured engines are required to (with some exceptions), crate motors are not.
Remanufactured engines nearly always come with a warranty. There may be exceptions, so it is important to learn the specifics of the auto shop. There is no reason for a shop to not offer a warranty on what is basically a new engine. While not getting a warranty would be rare, confirm the engine comes with a warranty prior to making any commitment.
All gasoline and diesel engines, with some exceptions, are eligible to be remanufactured. Old, rare and out-of-stock engines, engines with cracked or damaged blocks, and specialty engines are examples of engines that might not be eligible to be remanufactured. Also to be considered are parts availability and a mechanic’s knowledge of a particular engine.  Most modern and popular engines are eligible. Lower- end production and rare engines might require specialty shops that work in these areas.
The most commonly remanufactured engine is the inline four-cylinder gasoline engine. It is the most mass-produced engine in the world and is the primary power plant in the most popular cars in the world, like the Honda Civic, Volkswagen Golf, Toyota Corolla, and the Ford Focus. The next most common remanufactured engine is the straight, or “‘inline” six, a six cylinder that is a larger and more powerful engine popular in many smaller, light duty trucks, SUVs, and an engine option in the Toyota Camry. The popularity of these cars and these engines makes them the highest in demand for remanufacture.
