Green Your Driving Machine (With Video)

When serious engine trouble hits, the Engine Repower Council reminds vehicle owners that repowering their vehicle rather than buying a new one is the cost-effective, "green" way to go.

"When it comes to your vehicle, it's great to be green," said Ken Carter, chairman of the Engine Repower Council.  "By repowering the vehicles we already own, we extend their useful lives and significantly reduce their impact on the environment.  Repowering also makes the vehicle more fuel efficient which reduces operating costs and harmful emissions, further helping to protect our planet."

With repowering, a vehicle's engine or an identical one from another like-vehicle is completely disassembled, cleaned, machined and remanufactured/rebuilt.  Unlike used or junk yard engines with an unknown performance and maintenance history, repowered engines are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs. Remanufactured/rebuilt engines save the tremendous amount of energy used in processing discarded engines and vehicles. Repowering also saves an incredible amount of raw materials that would have been used in building a new engine.

Frequently, remanufactured/rebuilt engines are even better than the vehicle's original new engine because the original factory engine problems have often been redesigned or replaced with better quality parts. Repowered engines are dependable, reliable and backed by excellent warranty programs that also usually cover installation expenses.  

"Engine repowering is not only an environmentally sound decision, but it lets you keep more 'green' in your wallet," Carter said. "For the cost of an average down payment on a new car or truck, you can repower your current vehicle, gaining years of reliable service and improved fuel economy all without monthly new car payments and higher insurance rates."
