Used Engines and Transmissions

Are you looking for a high-quality engine, transmission, transfer case, carrier assembly, rear axle, or front axle for a great price? At Bessler Auto Parts, we have a robust inventory of quality used Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) engines and transmissions. If we don’t have one in stock that fits your car, we also carry a full line of quality rebuilt engines that meet all OEM specifications.

A car’s powertrain refers to the critical components that produce the power for a car and deliver it to the wheels. These parts include the engine, transmission, differential, axle shafts, and, depending on whether a car is front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive, the transaxle, driveshaft, and transfer case. Regardless of what you’re looking for, chances are we have the right engine and transmission for your domestic or foreign car, van, SUV, or pickup truck.

Share the year, make, and model of the engine, transmission, transfer case, carrier assembly, rear axle, or front axle you’re looking for, and one of our driveline experts will be in touch!

Used Engines

Find the Best Used Engine

Many people are wary of used auto parts, but a used engine can last as long as your original. Before you purchase a used engine, make sure to ask for a vehicle history report to verify any past major repairs or accidents. One without damage is always best, so always ask about its history and the vehicle it came from.

A good replacement is one that:

  • Has all its parts
  • Is relatively low in mileage (under 75,000 miles)
  • Is protected by a warranty
  • Has been thoroughly inspected
Remanufactured Engines

Remanufactured Engines

A remanufactured engine is completely disassembled, cleaned, inspected, re-machined, reassembled, and tested to ensure functional quality that meets or exceeds original specifications and performance. Any known defects of the original engines are repaired during the remanufacturing process, making some remanufactured engines better than their original production quality.

At Bessler’s, we source all of our remanufactured engines from APS Manufacturing. APS has been a world leader in the engine remanufacturing business for more than 60 years, and remanufactures engines and parts to OEM’s rigid standards.

Used Transmissions from Bessler Auto Parts

Transmission repairs can be costly, and it can be hard to find new transmissions since they’re primarily designed for vehicles in production. Your options include finding used transmission parts, a completely intact used system, or a rebuilt or remanufactured transmission.

How to Find the Best Used Transmission

Finding the best-used transmission means identifying one without damage or excessive wear. Consider the previous car’s mileage, the failure that occurred, and the type of car/transmission you need to install. Reliability is a major consideration since you don’t want to get stuck or have any other kind of failure over the short term.

Replacing your transmission can help you avoid buying a new car or the expenses of a new transmission, which can cost as much as an engine. The main benefit is cost savings, but you also save time with options such as a rebuild, which is often completed in a few days.

Remanufactured Transmissions

An alternative option is to obtain a remanufactured system. A “reman” is overhauled in a factory rather than a shop by experienced technicians. The work is completed by individuals dedicated to disassembly and inspection, while others clean it, and another team does the restoration. Parts out of specification are replaced, and new components meeting the manufacturer’s standards are installed.
