Should you replace the engine in your BMW?
There are multiple reasons you may think to replace the engine in your BMW. Maybe it is failing? Maybe you’re seeking better performance? We’re here to discuss both options below.
My engine is failing
Wondering how this happened? There are three major reasons that engines fail. The first and most common is due to improper lubrication. Skipping oil changes leads to catastrophic damage in your engine. The second is due to overheating, which is when the engine heats up too much and causes parts to fail. If your BMW is sending you a flashing red warning light, pull over immediately to avoid risking further damage. The third is detonation. This occurs when there is abnormal combustion inside the engine. Wondering if you should get your engine replaced? It depends on the severity of the problem. Rebuilding a damaged engine may be a more economical option than full replacement. In an engine rebuild bearings, gaskets, and seals are replaced. Ask your service advisor what your options are for your vehicle. They will give you an estimate for each option you have, and then it will give you a better idea of what repair option makes the most sense for you and your vehicle. Maybe your vehicle is older, and you can’t decide if you want to replace the engine or just buy a new vehicle. This is where you need to take into consideration how much you love your car, how well maintained it has been (to avoid future problems), if you still owe money on it, or if you don’t owe money on it but it makes more sense for you to spend a little more upfront to avoid a recurring car payment. After all, it is the ultimate driving machine. Many of our customers opt for engine rebuild or replacement to keep driving their favorite vehicle for years to come.
