How much miles can a used car engine run?
There is not a specific number of miles that used engines can run. It totally depends upon which used engine you have installed in your car. It is the engine that you have installed in your car. If the used engine has already run a lot of miles and has not been on a proper service schedule, and has run on rough roads there are a lot of chances that it’s not going to be useful for a long period of time. On the other hand, an engine that has been maintained properly and runs only a few miles will serve you as a new engine in most cases. So, you need to check the used car engine buying guide before buying it.
If you are still asking how many miles your used engine can run? You have to know how much it has been used earlier, by whom it has been used(good driver or bad driver), whether it has been serviced properly or not, is it given that too much stress, whether or not it has been driven on rough roads, etc. If engines are taken good care of they can run up to 1,00,000 to 2,00,000 lakh miles. So you can know how many miles the engine has covered earlier and then take out the difference. If the engine has been used by a good driver who takes care of his engine very properly and services it from time to time. There are chances that the engine will serve you for a very long period of time. If the engine has not been maintained regularly and has been driven on rough roads without proper servicing. The engine will not function properly for a long period of time and you should not waste money on buying such a used engine.
