As most people know when a part goes bad in a Volkswagen it can cause multiple other things to fail with it. In the case that you are faced with a serious engine problem turn to Bavarian Rennsport, your local independent repair shop for all your engine service and maintenance repair needs. Maintaining a stock of high-quality Volkswagen core engines allows us to provide you the option to either replace or repair your engine and get you back on the road as quickly as possible. The remanufactured engines that we provide have been test run in the vehicle before dismantling. Once the engines are removed from the vehicle they are compression and leak down tested to confirm OEM factory specifications. After passing the specifications test they are sealed up with cap-plugs, jet washed, dried, and sealed in plastic. All rebuilt engines are manufactured using only factory OEM replacement parts or better.

Why Do I Need a New Engine?

Bavarian Rennsport understands that certain clients will have different needs and budgets, as well as other constraints such as (warranty coverage, for instance) when it comes to choosing a solution for an engine replacement. Most engines reach catastrophic failures when the factory service and maintenance schedule has been ignored, the vehicles internal components can suffer from a cooling system failure or oil starvation. When your vehicle’s engine components fail it will result in an inoperable vehicle that will require a new or remanufactured engine. The most common causes of engine failure can come from either a broken water pump/thermostat or the oil pump is damaged and starved from low oil levels. When any of these common issues occur, different parts of the engine will become damaged and possibly inoperable. When replacing an engine, it’s important that you choose the right replacement option based on your needs and future life expectancy of the vehicle.

Do I need a rebuilt engine or a new crate engine?

When a catastrophic failure in your Volkswagen vehicle strikes, and you come in with a blown engine, you are faced with two options – to either rebuild your current motor or get a new OEM crate engine. This decision lies in your current circumstances and your expectations for the vehicle. Things like time, reliability, and budget can play major parts in that decision. The entire Bavarian Rennsport team is here to provide you with the best possible service and get you back on the road with a smart but affordable option for your situation. You might find that rebuilding the blown engine is the right path to take, but for customers pressed for time or want the most out of the vehicle, that won’t be the case.

Rebuilt or Remanufactured Engine?

The process that Bavarian Rennsport performs on rebuilding an engine involves removing the entire engine from the vehicle and completely disassembling it. Once the engine has been disassembled, cleaned, and inspected, all damaged parts are replaced with new or refurbished replacement parts. All new gaskets, seals, and lubricants are used in the assembly of the rebuilt engine that will meet OEM standards. The most common components to be replaced include bearings, gaskets, seals, timing belt or chain, valve springs, and the oil pump. Major parts are replaced only if they are needed, and often include camshafts, crankshafts, and pistons. In the most severe cases, we will have to machine parts that have been warped. The advantages of rebuilding an engine versus a new Crate Engine is the connectivity and compatibility that it has with the existing ECU and electrical system in the vehicle. The ECU is programmed to communicate with the engine originally installed in the vehicle. When a new engine is installed the ECU may have problems connecting and communicating with the new engine. When the engine has problems communicating to the vehicle it will require either a reprogramming of the ECU or replacement which keeps you from receiving your vehicle on the expected date and time.

Crate Engine

A Crate Engine in the eyes of the Bavarian Rennsport team would be a brand new engine coming straight from the Volkswagen Dealerships which explains the name “Crate” because they are new and untouched after assembly at the factory. Some companies classify a crate engine as a rebuilt engine with new internals but old external parts which we don’t believe in. Crate engines are more expensive than remanufactured engines, but they’re guaranteed to be in a new OEM condition and have a factory warranty. A crate engine will have the same lifespan as the engine in a car just rolling off the assembly line. Therefore a Crate Engine will be the best long-term solution for customers who plan to keep their car for as long as possible and that want a quick solution to get back on the road.
