Choose Your Engine Reviews Below

We get a lot of requests for engine reviews, The Good-The Bad And The Ugly.

Most engines on the road today are designed to last well over 100,000 miles.

An engine will last much longer if the engine is not abused.

So, any and all maintenance that the manufacturer recommends should be done on or before it is due.

Granted, anything with mechanical parts is subject to failure of one type or another.

Abusing an engine, no matter its quality, can and most likely will shorten its life. When you do not change the fluids and filters when recommended by the manufacturer then you will cause excessive part and component wear. This can affect parts like;

  • Bearings
  • Pistons
  • Valves
  • Timing chains and gears

If the engine is overheated and driven till the engine stops because of ignoring the temperature gauge or warning lights, it can cause irreversible internal engine wear or damage.

Engines have been mass produced in numerous configurations, the most popular of which feature four, six, or eight cylinders, operating on gasoline or diesel fuel. Along the way, different castings and materials have been tried, as have unusual firing orders, various induction systems, and more.

Here, we’ll take a lighthearted look at some of the more noteworthy power plants that were famous or infamous.
