There are many reasons an engine needs to be rebuilt, ranging from wear and tear to unusual noises while you’re driving. Rather than drop the car off at a repair shop, some drivers would rather do the work themselves at home to save money and make sure the repairs are done quickly. Buying an engine kit is a simple way to get all the parts you need to rebuild your engine in one shopping trip, but how do you know which kit to choose?
Here are three tips to make sure you get the right engine kit:
- Know Your Make & Model: The most important thing to look for when buying an engine kit is compatibility with your particular car. Even if the new parts aren’t made by your vehicle’s manufacturer, checking for compatibility ensures that the parts will be the right shape and size for your engine.
- Know Your Performance Level: The parts you need for your family’s everyday vehicle will differ from the ones found in a high-performance engine kit. These parts tend to be larger and more powerful than what a passenger car requires. Make sure you know which type of kit you need so your newly rebuilt engine can provide the right amount of power.
- Have The Right Tools: Your toolkit basics, like screwdrivers, a socket set, and a ratchet, will come in handy during your rebuild. Working with an engine kit requires additional tools, such as a wrench set, ball-peen hammer, and a torque wrench. If these other items aren’t already in your toolbox, make sure you buy them when you pick up your engine kit.
