If you have a vehicle with major mechanical problems like a blow engine, you can look for a dealer who trade in broken down vehicles. They will be able to find some value in your automobile and buy it off you for a reasonable price. But unfortunately it can be a little bit more difficult and troublesome.

Basically, it can cost you around $6,000 to repair a vehicle with blow out the engine. And, sometimes you may even need to replace the engine rather than repairing it. If you have an automobile that no longer run due to a blown engine, it may be difficult to trade it in through a dealership for top dollars.

How can I sell my car with a blown engine?

When the engine of an automobile suffers with a mechanically destructive internal damage, then it is said to be blown up. However, it actually don’t blow up. There can be only steam, smoke or fire in some cases. Some of the common causes of a blown engine are a broken connecting rod making a hole in the block, a valve bunching through the piston’s top and a total loss of oil or low levels of coolant. When a valve breaks down and punch through a piston, an immensely pressurized and hot along with a blue smoke tends to explode out of the engine’s top.

A connecting rod connects the piston to the crankshaft in an engine.  And, as the pistons are connected to the other working engines too. The crankshaft usually spins around at a very high speed and covers around thousands of rotation in one minute. As a result, the broken piston rod stuck through the walls of the block. All this cause the oil to spill out of the crankcase.

Spilling out of oil is quite bad for a vehicle mechanical condition. This is because there are a number of parts in engine which work very fast and touch closely together. The oil help in the smooth working of those parts and provide enough friction and heat to fuse together. Therefore, when the oil of your automobile spills out the working components such as pistons can stop working and may cause great damage to your engine.

Just like the spilling of oil, losing coolant also cause tremendous damage to a vehicle. It helps in the keeping the operating temperature of an engine low so the oil can properly lubricate its moving parts. When you the coolant in your automobile starts burning. You’ll probably observe white smoke coming from its exhaust. Even the oil that is very hot is nearly as bad as not having any oil.

When you observe that your automobile is using a lot of oil, burning more oil or coolant, excessive smoke is coming from the exhaust, consuming more fuel, has a knocking sound or its engine is seized, then its engine will be about to blow up.    

Where can I sell a car with blown engine?

In many cases, it is possible to trade in an automobile with a blown engine, particularly when there are recognised nationwide dealerships. They trade in vehicles in nearly all possible conditions. However, they may not give you a much higher price for it.

Basically, dealerships buy and sell automobiles. So, they will be ready to take your broken vehicle only if you are purchasing a new one from them. However, not many people will be ready to invest in a vehicle that doesn’t run or have a mechanical problem. Thus, many people consider to trade in their mechanically damaged wheels.
