The vehicle engines of today are designed to require less routine maintenance, yet run more efficiently than the gas guzzlers of decades past. Occasionally, however, an engine will fail while the remainder of the car is still in excellent shape.
When this happens, the vehicle owner must make a decision whether to take a loss on their investment and just purchase another car or to spend the money to make the necessary repairs.
With all of the cars that end up in a salvage yard, it is a wonder that no one has thought of going to a salvage yard, plucking salvaged pieces, and putting them together to create a vehicle. Well, maybe someone has, but it does not seem to catch on. The biggest reason for that might be design skills and/or the ability to weld things together. Perhaps the question at hand is whether or not it can be done at all.
Do you own a vehicle that seems like it is almost constantly in need of repairs? Have you been looking for ways to save money on the repairs so that you can spend money on other things? When you have a limited budget to work from, driving a vehicle can seem like a money sink when it is in need of multiple repairs in a short span of time. Fortunately for you, there are ways to save money during many repairs so that the money can be spent on other things.
