How do I Sell My Car if it has engine issues?

A car with engine issues is never easy to maintain. The engine is the heart of a vehicle when the engine goes bad or is gone- it’s probably best to get rid of the whole vehicle.

Of course, you could always replace the engine with a new one. But that is extremely costly not to mention time consuming and requires paperwork. One of the main solution is to sell your car to a cash for car company, Main benefit less headache.

Is the engine worth fixing or replacing?

Replacing the engine of a vehicle often costs more than what the actual vehicle is worth on the market. And finding a used engine that doesn’t potentially have problems of its own, may prove to be challenging as well. So, what can you do with a car that has engine problems?

Once the engine to your vehicle starts giving you trouble, you’re probably better off getting a new car than spending money on trying to fix or replace the engine. Selling a vehicle with engine problems might not be so easy though. Who will buy a used car that doesn’t function properly? The truth is, finding a buyer will be challenging unless you sell the vehicle to a scrap yard.

Where can you sell your used car with a blown engine?

Most dealerships are unwilling to buy a vehicle with engine trouble because the cost of fixing or replacing an engine is just not worth the trouble. Selling it privately is also difficult because most people looking to buy a vehicle are searching for one with a working engine- unless you find someone who is looking to buy your used vehicle to strip and reuse its parts.

The best place to sell a vehicle with engine damage is to the scrap yard.
