Catastrophic engine failure leaves automobile owners with one of two choices-they can either sell their vehicle for scrap or buy a new engine.
However, for many individuals, because of budget constraints, scrapping their vehicle is simply not an option. This leaves purchasing either a new replacement engine or a Jasper remanufactured one. When faced with this dilemma, many auto owners ponder which is the better solution.
What is the Difference?
The components of a new engine are fresh off the assembly line. Jasper remanufactured engines are designed to function just like a newly built engine. However, these engines are sold at a substantially reduced price. Essentially, Jasper remanufactured engines use a combination of recycled and new parts. For example, used engines are disassembled and any obviously damaged parts are scrapped. All the remaining components, including the heads, block, crankshaft, camshafts, rods, pistons, and water pump are carefully inspected. Inspections are comprehensive, meaning the engine blocks and cylinder heads are x-rayed, pistons are measured with micrometers, ensuring that any and all issues not viewable by the naked eye are identified.
All the parts must pass the inspection process used to assemble the Jasper remanufactured engine, with new bearings, piston rings, and other needed parts. When the process is complete, the remanufactured engine is then tested to ensure it is of the highest quality.
New Replacement vs. Jasper Remanufactured Engine Cost
The most obvious difference between new and Jasper remanufactured engines is the cost. A new engine uses all new parts including an engine block, crankshaft, cylinder heads, connecting rods, camshaft, pistons, and valves. Because of this, a new engine will cost considerably more than a Jasper remanufactured engine.
A Jasper remanufactured engine uses parts from previous engines. When an engine fails, many of its components can still be utilized. It is these parts that are remanufactured into a new engine. Since these parts are basically free (damaged engines have a very low “core” value), most of what one is paying for is a handful of new parts and a thorough inspection.
For all the reasons provided, Jasper remanufactured engines are considerably less expensive than new engines.
New Replacement vs Jasper Remanufactured – Warranty and Performance
Because Jasper manufactured engines employ used parts, they usually come with an extended warranty. This doesn’t mean anything will go wrong with the engine, but it offers additional assurance that one is receiving a quality product. As for performance, the average consumer will not be able to tell the difference between a Jasper remanufactured engine and a new one.
Jasper Remanufactured Engines: Better than New?
Because of the way Jasper remanufactured parts are sourced, they often encompass a better deal than new parts:
- Jasper remanufactured engines are built from parts sourced from broken engines
- All the parts are carefully inspected before they are utilized in new assemblies
- Many of the bearings are replaced in remanufactured engines, as well as seals and other wearables
- The engine is assembled in the same kind of facility that builds new engines
- When completed, a remanufactured engine comes with a substantial warranty
Considering the excellent pricing, rigorous testing, assembly standards and warranty, it is difficult to argue against Jasper remanufactured engines.
