Decoding the World of Remanufactured Engines: Myths, Realities and Trustworthiness

Are you on the fence about whether or not a remanufactured engine is a good call? Understanding the differences between a rebuilt, refurbished and remanufactured engine can be challenging. Still, we’ve put our knowledge to the test to help clear up a few myths about remanufactured engines. From benefits to trustworthiness, we’ll break down various myths and realities to help you decide if a remanufactured engine is right for you.

Is a remanufactured engine a good thing?

Before we dive into what makes up a remanufactured engine, it’s important to cover what it isn’t. A Remanufactured engine is not the same thing as a rebuilt engine. While rebuilt and remanufactured engines undergo an inspection and cleaning process, remanufactured engines undergo a more intense process. Each piece of the engine is produced with precision to return it to a better condition than before. Additionally, each product has warranty coverage that meets or exceeds OEM specifications. By comparison, a rebuilt engine is not required to follow the exact OEM specifications, meaning that the quality of the engine decreases significantly and is less reliable.

A remanufactured engine can be an excellent option for your vehicle as there is a decreased wait time for availability, and you can elevate your driving experience with new features. Other benefits include:

  • Cost savings
  • Environmentally sustainable
  • Quality control
  • Warranty
  • Available

Does a remanufactured engine mean a new engine?

While a remanufactured engine is like a new engine in an old body, it is not considered a new engine. Individual pieces are restored or created to be as close to new as possible. Remanufactured engines will last as long as a new engine, depending on maintenance, driving conditions, and the quality of the engine because they are designed to work as efficiently as a new engine.

Does an engine remanufacture reset mileage?

Mileage measures the distance travelled by the entire vehicle, not just the engine. The odometer is not connected to the engine, meaning that when a remanufactured engine is installed, it will not reset your mileage because wear and tear on the rest of the vehicle is not reset. You will increase the vehicle’s value by installing a remanufactured engine, but it won’t undo the life that it has lived so far. Keep in mind that resetting the odometer of a vehicle is illegal!

Can you trust a remanufactured engine?

The trustworthiness of a remanufactured engine depends on various factors, including the quality of the remanufacturing process, the reputation of the remanufacturer, and how well the engine is maintained after installation. Here are some considerations:

  • Reputable Remanufacturer: Choose a reputable company with a history of producing high-quality remanufactured engines. Look for reviews and testimonials from customers who have purchased and used engines from the same remanufacturer.
  • Quality of Parts and Workmanship: A trustworthy remanufacturer will use quality parts and employ skilled technicians during the remanufacturing process. The engine should be disassembled, cleaned, inspected, and rebuilt to meet or exceed OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specifications.
  • Warranty: Reputable remanufacturers often provide a warranty for their products, which can be a good indicator of their confidence in the quality of their work. Be sure to understand the terms and conditions of the warranty before making a decision.
  • Certifications: Some remanufacturers follow industry standards and obtain certificates. For example, the Automotive Engine Rebuilders Association (AERA) provides guidelines for engine rebuilding, and a remanufacturer adhering to these standards may be considered more reliable.
  • Customer Feedback: Seek feedback from other customers who have purchased remanufactured engines from the same source. Online reviews and forums can provide valuable insights into the experiences of others.
  • Installation and Maintenance: Even the best-remanufactured engine can suffer if it is not installed correctly or if proper maintenance is ignored. Ensure that qualified professionals carry out the installations and that you follow the recommended maintenance schedule.

How do Diesel Generators Work?

In the heart of winter, ski resorts come alive with the hum of machinery, creating the perfect snow-covered landscape for avid skiers and snowboarders. Behind the scenes, a crucial player ensures that these resorts remain operational even in the harshest conditions – the diesel generator. In this blog post, we delve into the world of diesel generators, exploring what they are, how they work, where they are commonly used, and why they stand out as the preferred choice for a variety of industries.

What Is a Diesel Generator And How Does It Work?

A diesel generator is a standby power source that combines a diesel engine with an electric generator that converts energy through compression. The resulting energy can be used as a backup power source for an extended period. Unlike gas generators, diesel generators do not have a carburetor as they generate an electric current. Due to the capabilities of the internal diesel engine, diesel generators are known for their consistent power output and their long-range fuel tank design. As long as there is a consistent fuel source, you’ll have power.

The process begins with the combustion of diesel fuel in the internal engine, where the injected fuel mixes with air and ignites due to compression. The resulting movement of pistons converts chemical energy into mechanical energy, driving the crankshaft that, in turn, powers the generator’s alternator. The alternator generates an electric current through electromagnetic induction, and a voltage regulator ensures a stable current for distribution. 

Where Are Diesel Generators Most Commonly Used?

Diesel generators can be found anywhere from rural settings to commercial establishments as a way to combat grid-peaking. Industries such as construction, marine, mining, hospitals, forestry, telecommunications, and agriculture rely on diesel engines and diesel generators for their high-output power generation and reliability. More often than not, diesel generators are the workhorses of ski resorts. From snow-making machines to ski lift standby power, diesel generators are used to ensure ski resorts are ready for a day on the slopes with a steady power supply.

Did you know that snow-making machines alone can draw the same amount of power as a small town? Other diesel engine uses on the hill include snowplows and grooming equipment. Diesel generator backups thrive during emergencies, powering ski lifts during evacuations. The choice of fuel type, power output, and emissions becomes critical, with diesel generators standing out for their reliability and efficiency. 

How Efficient Are Diesel Generators?

Diesel generators are known for their efficiency, running at 80% of their total load capacity. The combustion process in diesel engines, relying on compression to ignite fuel, contributes to their fuel efficiency. This means that diesel generators require less fuel compared to natural gas generators, offering more energy per dollar spent.

How Long Can a Diesel Generator Run Continuously?

Well-maintained diesel generators are designed to last over 30,000 hours, making them a durable and long-lasting power solution. However, ignoring proper care and maintenance can significantly reduce their lifespan. With wear and tear, a poorly maintained diesel generator will last for 10,000 hours. With a continual diesel supply, standby diesel generators can run for approximately 3,000 hours. The longevity of a diesel generator depends on factors such as the fuel source, engine oil quality, power demand, motor efficiency, and engine type.

When it comes to your diesel generator, there are some added steps that you can take to extend its life, including:

  • Checking your oil levels regularly
  • Using high-quality fluids
  • Performing regular preventative maintenance
  • Preparing your generator for winter by switching to a lighter-weight engine oil

Why Is It Preferable To Choose a Diesel Engine Generator?

When it comes to powering through the unexpected, a diesel generator is your best option. Diesel engines are less expensive to maintain compared to gas generators. Your diesel generator can last for decades with regular maintenance and quality parts. To keep up with environmental standards, diesel generators and engine designs are continually improving in the search for a more sustainable and cleaner power solution.

Ski resorts are more and more frequently looking for ways to continue to serve on the hill while also finding ways to incorporate sustainability into equipment choices.

How Fuel Efficient is a Diesel Engine?

Diesel engines are most commonly recognized for their efficiency and reliability under heavy loads, making them the top choice for industries whose bread and butter are long-haul drives and high-torque applications. But are diesel engines as fuel-efficient as they claim to be? The short answer is, yes, but we want to explore why they are more fuel efficient than a gasoline engine. In this blog, we will take a closer look at the differences between a gasoline and diesel engine, the highest efficiency rating, and how that can be applied to real-world diesel engines.

What is the Maximum Fuel Efficiency of a Diesel Engine?

Today, diesel engines have an average fuel efficiency of 20 – 35% more efficient compared to older engines once they have been broken in. Fuel efficiency ratings have continued to improve due to re-engineering the engine design with fuel injection systems, improved management systems, and turbocharging capabilities. The push for increased fuel efficiency goes hand in hand with increased engine durability and meeting emission requirements. While diesel engines are often critiqued for their emissions, continued design improvements have made them far more environmentally friendly than they’ve been in the past.

The largest player in determining a vehicle’s fuel efficiency comes down to the fuel density. Factors that are considered in determining a vehicle’s fuel efficiency include:

  • The vehicle’s weight
  • Condition
  • Age
  • Stock or after-market modifications
  • Driving habits
  • Workload

Taking into account these factors, the largest contender for determining your engine’s fuel efficiency is fuel density. For context, fuel density is the amount of energy in a gallon or litre of fuel.

The fuel density of a diesel engine can range from 13 to 18% more than a gasoline engine. The chemical composition of diesel fuel makes it the denser of the two options, which weighs in its favour. As a rule of thumb, the denser the fuel, the better your mileage will be.

What is the Efficiency of a Diesel Engine in a Truck?

The diesel truck engines that rank with the highest fuel efficiency are Cummins, Powerstroke, and Duramax. Heavy and Medium-duty diesel engines will see an average of 14 MPG for 6.6 Duramax and 6.7 Cummins diesel engines. The 6.7 Powerstroke remanufactured diesel engine has the highest average for fuel efficiency with 15 MPG.

Are Diesel Engines more Fuel-Efficient than Gasoline Engines?

Let’s consider some of the differences between diesel and gasoline engines that play into fuel efficiency. Both use a four-stroke combustion cycle: intake, compression, power, and exhaust. However, the way they handle this cycle is where the magic happens.

  • Intake and Compression: Diesel engines draw in air during the intake stroke only and compress it at a significantly higher ratio compared to gasoline engines.
  • Ignition: Unlike gasoline engines, diesel engines do not require spark plugs. Rather, the fuel ignites through compression. For more information on diesel engine ignition, check out our previous blog post!
  • Performance: Diesel engines excel in long-haul or highway driving due to their higher torque, which contributes to better fuel efficiency and faster accelerations. By comparison, gasoline engines perform better in start and stop traffic and without a load.

In general, diesel engines and their fuel density contribute to their higher rankings for fuel efficiency over gasoline engines. That being said, diesel engines have a higher price tag attached to their fuel efficiency due to their higher fuel costs, higher purchase prices, and their inefficiency for light loads.

What Causes Blow-By in a Diesel Engine?

Diesel engines are renowned for their power and efficiency, but like any mechanical system, they can experience issues over time. When your engine is running smoothly, it can be easy to push off regular maintenance. The longer your engine goes without service, the higher the risk of engine failure. An early warning sign that your engine needs some TLC is when you experience a blow-by. Every type of engine is capable of engine blow-by, but high-performance engines and diesel engines will exhibit signs early on. Curious about why your diesel engine is experiencing blow-by? Let’s dive into the basics and diagnosis, and how to significantly reduce engine blow-by.

Why do Diesel Engines have Blow-By? Causes and Symptoms

Engine blow-by is a result of a mixture of air-fuel or combustion gases leaking between the engine’s pistons and the cylinder wall, escaping into the crankcase. This mixture typically consists of water vapour, carbon dioxide, unburned fuel, and air. Blow-by occurs when the pressure in the combustion chamber becomes too great to be contained, forcing these gases into the crankcase. It’s essential to understand that some degree of blow-by is normal, but excessive blow-by can signal underlying issues. To minimize risks to your diesel engine, it is important to periodically check the state of your piston ring seal and monitor any changes. 

Diesel engines, in particular, are more prone to blow-by compared to gasoline engines due to their higher compression ratios, which create greater pressure in the combustion chamber.

Common Causes of Diesel Engine Blow-By

  • Piston Rings: Piston rings are crucial for creating a seal between the piston and the cylinder wall. Over time, as these rings wear down, the gap between the crankcase and the cylinder wall can increase, leading to increased blow-by.
  • Worn Cylinder Walls: While piston rings bear the brunt of wear, the cylinder walls can also deteriorate. As they wear down, they create a larger gap between the wall and the piston, allowing combustion gases to escape.
  • Scratching and Scouring: The core of your engine is just as susceptible to damage as any other part. Damage can be caused by dirt and debris caught in the cylinder, carbon in the oil, and leaking fuel injectors. Once the cylinder walls, pistons, and rings are damaged, it can create pathways for combustion gases to leak.
  • High Carbon Levels: Considered the silent killer of diesel engines, carbon build-up in the piston ring grooves or engines without electronic fuel injectors can increase blow-by.
  • Manufacturing Defects: In some cases, engine manufacturing defects, particularly in piston-to-cylinder clearances, or poor quality control, can lead to blow-by issues.

Engine blow-by can arise from a variety of factors and can easily be mistaken for other symptoms. However, understanding the symptoms of engine blow-by can help you plan and take preventative measures to protect your diesel engine and its inner workings.

During What Stroke Does Blow-By Occur in a Diesel Engine?

 Most diesel engines have a 4-stroke combustion cycle, with piston strokes for intake, compression, power and exhaust. Engine blow-by occurs when the combustion chamber hits the maximum pressure during the compression and power strokes. This reaction can be impacted by the engine temperature and whether or not it is under a load. The hotter the engine, the more likely it is to experience engine blow-by. 

As a rule of thumb, the average engine blow-by is between 1.5 and 3 cfm (cubic feet per minute) when the engine is hot and cold respectively.

What Happens to a Diesel Engine Experiencing Blow-By?

Are you trying to identify why your diesel engine is acting up? To help you rule out other factors,  knowing the signs of an engine blow-by can save you time and money and minimize the risk of a misdiagnosis. Is your diesel engine experiencing any of the common symptoms of blow-by?

  • White Smoke: A telltale sign of blow-by is white smoke billowing from the oil-fill tube or valve cover opening.
  • Rough Idling and Misfiring: Diesel engines experiencing blow-by may exhibit rough idling and misfiring, indicating a loss of compression in the combustion chamber. An engine misfire occurs when combustion gases escape early from the chamber.
  • Increased Oil Consumption: If your diesel engine is using more oil than usual, it could be a result of blow-by contaminating the crankcase oil. Monitor your oil levels to ensure your engine will not seize and the timing of your oil change intervals.
  • Excessive Exhaust Smoke: Blow-by can contribute to excessive exhaust smoke, which is often thick and discoloured.
  • Poor Engine Performance: Overall engine performance may suffer, with sluggish acceleration and reduced efficiency. If you are experiencing reduced engine power, it can be a result of lost compression.
  • Increased Fuel Consumption: Decreased engine efficiency as a result of engine blow-by can result in higher fuel consumption rates and increased expenses. 
  • Runaway engines: In extreme cases of engine blow-by, your diesel engine can be at risk of running away and speeding out of control. If you notice any of the following symptoms, booking a service appointment should be your top priority.

How Do You Stop Blow-By in a Diesel Engine?

While it is nearly impossible to fully stop blow-by from happening, there are preventative measures you can take to mitigate the risk and ensure your diesel engine is in top condition. 

  • Optimal Ring Seal: Ensure that the piston rings create a tight seal between the cylinder wall and the piston. Regular maintenance is critical for medium to heavy-duty diesel engines that operate at high pressures and temperatures.
  • Ventilation: Use vent tubes or oil separators to manage extreme crankcase pressure and separate oil from combustion gases. Keep an eye out for a stuck-open valve, such as black smoke, engine sludge, or surging.
  • High-Quality Engine Oil: Use high-quality engine oil and remove stiction from piston rings to maintain a tight seal.
  • Regular Maintenance: Adhere to a strict maintenance schedule, including oil changes, injector replacements, and cylinder inspections. This will ensure that the pistons are more frequently monitored for signs of carbon buildup or contamination.

What are the Benefits of Remanufactured Diesel Engines and Custom Parts?

What do you want to get out of your diesel engine? From serving as the workhorse that keeps you on the go for work to understanding the power of a diesel engine, your vehicle has more value to you than just acting as a piece of equipment. Just as you are looking for quality workmanship, we are committed to bringing you the best of the best when it comes to remanufactured engines. There are many hidden benefits to remanufactured engines that can be lost in translation, and we want to be clear and upfront about what makes us so passionate about providing quality services and products to our customers.

What makes remanufactured engines different from rebuilt engines?

First things first, a remanufactured engine and rebuilt engines should not be framed as the same type of engine. A rebuilt engine is one made up of reconditioned parts or new parts, but they do not go through the same quality and performance testing or inspections. Rather, rebuilt engines can use new or used parts at a cheaper price than a remanufactured engine.

Alternatively, a remanufactured engine is made to the original specifications and extra time and care is taken to disassemble, inspect, machine and reassemble the engine to ensure that every component is held to the highest standard of quality. In reality, it is on the same playing field as a new engine, but with a greater emphasis on sustainability.

Want to take a closer look at engine types? Check out our previous blog for a breakdown of rebuilt, remanufactured, and refurbished engines.

Why should I choose a remanufactured engine?

Choosing to upgrade your engine doesn’t always have to be a worst-case-scenario response to a failed engine. Whether you are starting to research the next steps or you want to upgrade your driving experience, a remanufactured engine has many unspoken benefits.

Reliability and Durability

Unlike the stigma surrounding used engines, remanufactured engines and their inspection process bring the machine shop to the next level. Every part and mechanism has been cleaned, undergone thorough inspection and certification, or has been replaced if there are any signs of wear and tear. The expression “good as new” is not an understatement, our remanufactured engines are built to last and withstand the lifespan of the parts. Not only that but they are tested and designed to give you reliable, consistent performance on the road.

This state-of-the-art technology can save you time and money by extending the life of your diesel engine and increasing your fuel efficiency. 

It’s time to debunk some myths surrounding diesel engines. Are you ready?

Diesel versus gasoline: Which engine has a longer lifespan?

At face value, the price tag of a diesel engine can be off putting, but the return on investment is higher than with a gasoline engine. With technological advancements and new designs, the average diesel engine will surpass 800,000 km (500,000 mi) compared to the average of 320,000 km (200,000 mi) for gasoline engines. Diesel engines are the powerhouse for work trucks, offering you greater load capacities and towing capacity compared to gasoline. 

There are three aspects of a diesel engine that lengthen its lifespan. First, the engine design improves its overall performance. They are designed to withstand a higher compression ratio and cylinder pressure. The powerful nature of the compression chambers and high heat requires high-quality internal parts, meaning that diesel engines house larger and sturdier bolts compatible with larger crankshafts and camshafts. Overall, they offer better engine lubrication to keep it functioning as it should. For more information on the benefits of your engine, check out our previous blog post to find out which engine design gets the best fuel mileage.

The second aspect is diesel fuel. The price difference at the pumps for diesel and gasoline fuel is reflected in the different chemical makeups. Gasoline fuel is an aromatic hydrocarbon, making it harsh and corrosive to your engine over time. Alternatively, diesel fuel is made from crude oil and allows your engine to burn the fuel slower than gasoline as a result of a smaller air-to-fuel ratio. The slower burn rate is reflected in slower cylinder wear and tear compared to a gasoline engine.

Finally, the last aspect of a diesel engine’s lifespan is the lower RPMs. The power of a diesel engine comes from the higher torque in the engine compared to gasoline. Through requiring less power, there is less wear and tear on each of the engine parts, namely the pistons, rings, cylinder walls, bearings and valves. Regardless of your relationship with your mechanic, fewer trips to the shop for maintenance make diesel engines a more attractive option.

At DFC Diesel, our remanufactured engines are designed to withstand tough working conditions that you may encounter. We partnered with Speed of Air Technologies to test the Hyperformance Pistons and see the results for ourselves. The dimpled effect of the pistons allows for less carbon build-up inside the combustion chamber, giving you more power and a longer lasting engine.

What makes a diesel engine more fuel efficient?

When measuring fuel efficiency, a good indicator of fuel savings is how your engine and vehicle performs under load. For hauling and towing, diesel engines can outperform gasoline engines while under load and last three times longer. The fuel efficiency of a diesel engine is a result of the longer strokes of the engine. There is more time for the piston to move away from the heat, lengthening its lifespan and building up the power in the engine. Due to the high heat in the chamber, diesel engines require high-quality parts, and pistons are part of the puzzle as they are designed to withstand countless heat cycles without crumbling. To reduce heat transfer, pistons are coated with a protective thermal barrier coating.

Why are maintenance and high-quality parts important for a diesel engine?

When you care for your engine, your engine will care for you by saving you money time and time again. At DFC Diesel, there is no doubt that we love diesel engines and the potential they hold. Built for reliability, durability and longevity, when you take time to properly care for your vehicle, you will save money every year.
