What does "exchange engine" mean in the case of an engine failure?

Do you have engine damage and are you advised to have an engine replaced? Then you are right with us. We specialize in engine overhaul. You will receive a completely overhauled exchange engine from us, and we will get your old engine back in exchange. If the old engine can be overhauled, we will overhaul the engine. Please take into account our surcharge for old engines that cannot be overhauled. This surcharge arises because in this case we have to get a "new" old engine again, which we can overhaul. If necessary, your old engine can still be overhauled after the engine damage, but the repair is associated with very high costs. Unfortunately, we cannot always tell you in advance whether your engine can be overhauled or not. We only see the damage once we have disassembled the engine. For example, engines are not rebuildable if they are cracked or broken, or if the valves are torn off. As a rule, engines that "only" suffer from high oil consumption can be overhauled without any problems. Another good sign of overtaking ability is when the engine is still running.

Exchange engine with installation after engine damage

In our workshop, we offer you the complete service for the repair of your vehicle after engine damage:

  • Collection of your vehicle throughout Germany and in the neighboring countries (only peripheral areas)
  • Installation of a refurbished replacement engine without attachments - we can also change other attachments if required

Once the repair is complete, your vehicle will be ready for pickup. Our place has a good train connection and can be reached via Kassel or Fulda. Combine your pick-up with a visit to Northern Hesse. On request, we will also be happy to send you an information brochure about our region.

Why should you decide to have your engine repaired in our workshop?

We have over 20 years of experience in engine repairs. Overhauling engines is our daily business. Our colleagues specialize in installing replacement engines. Each replacement engine has its own special features that must be taken into account during overhaul and installation. We know from experience that the complete engine replacement is rarely carried out in car workshops and that installation errors regularly occur. Therefore, in the event of engine damage, we recommend that you only have the engine replaced by an expert who specializes in this work. Even if it might be a little further to get to us, your vehicle is in very good hands with us.

Exchange engine for shipment

We offer you a variety of engines from VW, Audi, Škoda and Seat for installation in your car workshop. Please bear in mind that every engine has its own peculiarities when it comes to installation. The installation may therefore only be carried out by qualified specialists. We recommend that the installation should only be carried out by experienced car mechanics. You will receive our motors in exchange. This means that we get your old, defective engine back - no matter what condition it is in. However, we have to charge a surcharge for old parts that cannot be overhauled.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
