The engine is the heart and soul of the vehicle. Pumping fuel and air into the various components delivering the power to turn the wheels.
When you open the bonnet, you may think the vehicle engine is a single component, but in fact the engine comprises of many parts which when combined, make one finely tuned internal combustion engine.
The lifespan of any vehicle engine is hard to predict. It is common for an engine to last over 200,000 miles whilst others can die with doing a fraction of that mileage. Maintenance is the key to engine longevity with regular vehicle servicing as recommended by the manufacturer. Also how you drive and the journeys you will undertake play a part. An engine will always be happier when used regularly at a steady consistent pace instead of short start and stops.

If you have checked all the components but and there is no other options but to replace your faulty engine, this can be easily done at less than you think.
