I bought a 22R engine for my old toyota truck I use as a second vehicle. The first engine I got had a weld mark on the block. I took it back with no fuss. Got another engine, installed it and drove it, on and off, for about 8 months. About 5 months into driving I started to slowly notice that after the engine was warm, it was difficult to restart. This difficulty to restart gradually grew worse. I drove to the store one day and it almost wouldn't restart. Once it did, it did not want to stay running unless i kept the rpm's high. Barely got home.

I started it the next day cold. A LOT of water came out the tailpipe. Checked the radiator and it was down. Not a lot, but more than it should be. Sowater might be getting into the engine. (Did the engine ever overheat? Absolutely not! Temp gauge works and it never got over normal. Over heat plugs never melted either.)

Took the head off and brought it to a professional machine shop. One look and the guy guessed that the head was out of specs. He measured and sure enough, the head had been surfaced too many times and was out of specs. It was too thin by a lot! Taking off the lifters he found that the cam shaft was likely bent. He said it should turn easily with two fingers and this one wouldn't turn using a tool for leverage!

Sotwo issues from the rebuilder (Engine World): 1) head was out of spec by being too thin 2) camshaft not straight

Machinist said that the engine might work for a while if I change the head gasket, but it will be a continual problem. (I trust this guy as he does very high end work, including for companies such as Ferrari. AND he saw what was wrong on first glance. To him it was obvious.)

My engine was out of the 6 month warranty, but I called anyway. At first I spoke with Nick. Told him that I was sold an engine out of spec. He said there is nothing he could do because it was out of warranty. He told me that their engines are always good.

Next I spoke with Rico. Simply saidhe is a punk. He told me straight out that: 1) he did not care at all about what happened, about me, or about anything I said 2) said that whatever happened, it was a problem with installation 3) that in 22 years of business that Engine World has NEVER made a mistake (I questioned him on this multiple times) 4) said that whatever happened, it was likely something that I had done.

From my experience, the modus operandi of Engine World seems to be: 1)sell anything, whether it works or not 2) never admit anything 3) never apologize

In summary- Engine World sold me an engine good for 8 months, with a 6 month warranty.

NEVER BUY FROM THESE CROOKS!!!!!

I bought a used Corolla motor for my 02 and they told me that it had 30k miles on it and it started to smoke. My mechanic took the head off and found out that they had "reconditioned" it from a junkyard engine and called it used. No warranty and no running engine. This company is a rip off and they are the most dishonest bunch of people I have known. I would tell my friends or the public that you are better off buying from a junkyard, cause that is where they get their engines from

Buyer beware. One of the worst purchase experiences in my life. They sold me an engine they bought from LKQ. The heat tab from LKQ was still on there and they tried to tell me it was from Japan. If you are going to sell me a junkyard engine from the US I can do that myself and not pay so much for it. When I demanded a refund they hung up on me and told me to f myself. I am taking to court. I can't give these shysters less than a 1 star but if I could I would. Don not buy

The cashier was very friendly and efficient. I called about 40 minutes before they were about to close to look for a certain auto part. The man, sounding busy enough, gave me different options and double checked to make sure they were in stock. We arrived a few minutes later and the store was quite busy. That being said we were still in and out within 5 minutes and the cashier was very pleasant. Would do business there again.

Referred my nephew to them for an emergency tune-up and the guys did a great job on very short notice! Brought in my truck for some tire work and they impressed me again. Great place, will be back again anytime one of my vehicles needs some TLC.
