Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between rebuilt and remanufactured?

Remanufactured diesel engines take the concept of engine rebuilds to a higher level of craftsmanship. The remanufacturing process means to make the engine as close to brand new as technology will allow. All engine wearable parts are replaced with new.

Remanufactured engine compenents are typically OEM pieces that are machined within OEM specifications. In a remanufactured engine we strive to re-work as much of the opriignal pieces as possible. These pieces inlcude but are not limited too the engine block, crankshaft, camshaft, connecting rods, and cylinder head. Every reman engine part that takes wear gets replaced. 

Engine rebuilds differ from remanufactured engines in a few key ways, although they are similar. Rebuilding an engine typically consists of inspecting, cleaning and replacing only exhausted parts. Parts that are still in workable condition are reused versus a complete replacement.

Rebuilt engines are still excellent machines but the quality varies from component to component. Additionally, the judgement of person inspecting the engine for wear can be subjective in nature. New OEM parts are either produced to the same production standards as the original engine or are replaced with newer model parts, thus making the reman diesel engine more efficient than before. Quality control standards ensure the reman engine performs as well or better than it did when it rolled off the assembly line for the first time.

Remanufactured engines are significantly more cost effective than using and OE manufacturer.

What is the cost savings benefit of a remanufactured engine over a used one?

Many used engines contain parts that can be described as “best available” or sold “as is.” These used parts are not cleaned or inspected for imperfections. The danger of relying on used parts is that maintenance history and service dates are often unknown. The cost of used engines or used parts is less than remanufactured diesel engines or reman parts, the risk of failure is inherently high and ultimately be more costly in the long run.

Do you have a warranty?

We offer a warranty through our manufacturer/distributor to each purchaser of a FPS rebuilt engine. It guarantees that the engine will be free of any defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for one year from the date on which the purchaser installs the engine. Our warranty is limited to the parts needed to correct any malfunction or defect in the engine that exists at the time the engine was sold to the purchaser. Our warranty is also limited in that it is given only to those purchasers who use the engine for industrial, highway, or marine purposes.
