Frequently Asked Questions

Can you drive a car with a blown engine?

In most cases, it’s just not possible. Depending on the damage, you may be able to turn the car on, and you may technically be able to run the vehicle, but you run the risk of an unexpected shutoff on the road or worse.

If your engine has problems, the safest thing to do is tow it to a mechanic (or find a junk car buyer who will tow it away for you, if you know you aren’t interested in paying to fix it). If you’re not interested in paying for engine repairs, it will make more sense to sell your car with a blown engine.

Who buys cars with blown engines?

Junkyards, salvage yards, and scrap yards will all make an offer on vehicles with blown engines, as will online junk car buyers, like DamagedCars. It’s important to describe your vehicle accurately — most offers will be contingent on understanding exactly what condition the vehicle is in.

Can I sell a car with a seized engine?

Yes! If you have a car with a seized engine or a blown motor, there are plenty of people who would be interested in making an offer on it. Most notably, DamagedCars is happy to generate an instant cash offer for your vehicle in 90 seconds with:

  • FREE towing!
