Can You Sell A Car With A Bad Engine?

If your car has a blown engine, you can sell it for cash. Chances are, the value of the vehicle will have diminished significantly due to the blown engine. This is because engines are costly to replace, and a vehicle without a functioning engine can’t be used to drive.

However, this does not mean the vehicle is a useless product. If the frame and the other mechanical parts are still good, the vehicle can be repaired and used again. Additionally, the parts of the vehicle can be torn apart and used in other vehicles. Finally, many recyclers can tear metal out of the vehicle and melt it down to be used in other products.

The cost of replacing an engine in a vehicle is often not worthwhile. Rather than spending thousands of dollars at the mechanic, sell your car for cash.

How To Sell A Car With A Bad Engine

To sell a car with a bad engine, start getting an estimate for the cost of repairs from local mechanics. This will help you determine whether you should repair or sell the car. Once you decide that selling is a better tactic, you can start figuring out how much your vehicle is worth.

Look up sales for damaged or non-running cars in your area to determine what the typical going price is. Take into account cars with similar makes, models and years to your vehicle for a more accurate comparison. Damaged cars are generally worth less than cars that are still running. Don’t try to compare your vehicle to identical cars in good condition.

Once you have an idea of what you can get for your damaged vehicle, you can begin exploring your options. Figure out what your goals are for selling the car to decide which option is best for you.

Where You Can Sell A Car With A Blown Engine

There are numerous options for where to sell a car when its engine is blown.

If you want to sell your car quickly, you can visit a junkyard or scrap yard. These yards specialize in recycling parts and metals of damaged cars. However, you may not necessarily get the best price for your car. They generally offer the scrap metal value of the vehicle.

If you want to replace your car as soon as possible, you can trade your damaged car in at a dealership. Some dealerships will accept damaged trade-ins to put towards the purchase of a new car. However, you might get less than you would at a scrap yard. Additionally, you must purchase a vehicle from the dealership.

If you want to get the best price possible for your car, selling it privately might be the best choice. This depends on your location as well as the vehicle’s make, model and year. However, you will have to schedule a time for individuals to come see your car.
