Usually, when it comes to engine repair options, an engine rebuild is generally a last resort. But depending on the severity of the damage in your engine and the costs involved, the best repair option may be to actually replace it with a used or rebuilt one. In addition to the fact that it could be the best financial option for you, some drivers want to keep their car’s original parts, or a rebuild costs less than actually replacing the engine.

When making a decision as to what type of engine repair option to choose, you first need to answer the question, “Why would you want to rebuild an engine instead of replacing it?” There are two answers:

Just like cholesterol causes clogged arteries in our bodies and can be a health risk for some people, the same principle applies to the oil that flows through your vehicle’s engine. Just as a poor diet and too little exercise cause deposits of cholesterol to block our arteries, contaminated oil can gum up engines.

How does oil get contaminated, you ask? With summer just around the corner, it’s good to know that hot temperatures will cause oil to solidify and become baked onto the surface of whatever it happens to be in, such as critical engine components. The oil loses its viscosity and becomes a tar-like goop that makes your engine work harder than usual just to keep running.

Wondering how can you tell if your car needs an oil change? Talk to the experts at Rum River Automotive and ask about their oil change coupons.

After the cold temperatures of winter, everyone is looking forward to the warm summer sun. Of course, everyone still wants to be cool and comfortable while in their homes and automobiles. So now is the time to have your car AC checked out by a certified car AC repair technician, especially if you are planning a summer road trip.

Maybe you have already tried out the AC and found yourself wondering, “Why is my car AC not blowing cold air?” There could be several reasons; such as the constant exposure to the heat of the engine, road debris, dirt, vibrations, quick stops, and a run-in with a curb. Any of these conditions can cause small cracks to form and connections to slowly loosen. This means refrigerant may be leaking, the condenser may be blocked, a fan may be broken, or there are faulty electrical connections.
