Having to replace an engine assembly can be one of the most difficult and expensive experiences as a car or truck owner. Replacement should be a last resort after all repair attempts have failed, but may be the best option if the rest of your vehicle is in good condition. A new engine can cost thousands of dollars, not including labor costs for installation. Save yourself a lot of money and time searching for the right engine by choosing a used engine from Get All Parts. We have access to a huge nationwide inventory of high-quality used engine assemblies. Search for the engine for your vehicle today and see how much you can save.

Engine assemblies in depth
Automotive engines are masterpieces of modern mechanical design, but they had very simple origins. Although rudimentary combustion-powered motors were being developed in the 17th century, it was in 1879 that German inventor Karl Benz - half the namesake of the Mercedes-Benz automaker - received a patent for his internal combustion engine that he manufactured for the first mass-produced automobile. British engineer Edward Butler built the first gasoline-powered engine in 1884.
The idea of internal combustion is basic: Oxygen and gasoline are ignited by a spark to combust, the force of which drives a piston attached to a drive shaft to produce torque - the rotational power that makes its way to the axles and then the wheels of a vehicle. But today’s engines are extremely complex machines that have become more and more powerful, even as engineers have made them smaller, lighter, and more fuel efficient. To give you an idea of how far engine mechanics have progressed, some vehicles in the 1930s and 1940s featured “straight” 12-cylinder engines that could barely produce 100 horsepower. Today there are four-cylinder engines that can generate more than 150 horsepower while consuming a fraction of the fuel.
Most of the recycled and remanufactured engines available through Get All Parts include the engine block, cylinder heads, head gaskets, crankshaft, pistons, rods, bearings, oil pump, camshafts, valves, and valve lifters. Some engines may include other parts and accessories that will assist your professional mechanic with installation, but that may need to be removed or replaced depending on your particular vehicle’s application. Choosing a used engine assembly instead of a new system can save you hundreds of dollars. Get All Parts’ recycled engines are sold as-is, while our remanufactured engines undergo a rigorous process of inspecting, cleaning, rebuilding, and testing before being inventoried and eventually sold.
