South Houston Engine Service Inc. on the Difference between Remanufactured and Rebuilt Engines

The terms “remanufactured” and “rebuilt” are so similar that many people assume remanufacturing an engine is synonymous with rebuilding an engine. However, the terms have very different meanings.

A remanufactured engine is completely reproduced to the original manufacturer’s blueprints and design specifications. It is then tested to ensure that it performs to the standards of the original engine, straight from the manufacturer. In contrast, rebuilding an engine entails only the replacement of broken and worn parts. As a result, the rebuilt engine may not necessarily perform up to its original manufacturer’s specifications. Thus, a clear difference exists in terms of quality.

South Houston Engine Service Inc. specializes in diesel engine remanufacturing of brands including Ford, General Motors, Dodge, and Chevrolet. In business since 1993, the company is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the official company website at
