Many people ask, “Where do used engines come from?” This is a great question. “Used” engines typically cost a fraction of the price for “new”. The age and condition of “used” can vary widely. Reputable companies supply used parts to the general consumer, auto repair and body shops. Having a trustworthy and reliable source is important to insure good used part quality and service support, and when necessary for warranty claims.
Used engines and used transmissions are like all used auto parts. The life of a “used part” begins as part of a used or wrecked car or truck. Car dealers, auction houses, wrecking companies and individuals act as collection points, which then in-turn supply recycling centers, salvage yards and junk-yard businesses. These later types of businesses remove the parts in highest demand, also based on quality and condition. There are many factors considered in selecting which parts to remove. What’s left over, after parts are removed is sold to metal shredders/recyclers.
