California Engine is dishonest. They have many complaints against them including mine. I just checked and the Better Business Bureau has 20 complaints against them, how many more go unreported? I called the number in another one of these reviews and the police department confirmed they get many calls on this company, many calling about Internet fraud. I never received my engine and now will try to contact other customers who are having the same problems. They don't answer the phone or emails. Maybe they are going out of business. In any case DO NOT give them your money, not even a credit card. They have a terrible contract which gives them the right to take your engine core regardless of what condition it is in. You don't want to send a core back to dishonest people, they can rob you blind, especially if they charge you upfront $1000 for a core. They tell you they pay return shipping of the core and then lie when you call to schedule the return. Go elsewhere and save yourself from the worry.

Stole my core, won't answer dozens of phone calls or emails. Engine won't work. Been trying to contact them for months. I wish I would have seen all the bad reviews about them on the Internet.

If there was no star that is what I would rate this business. The Better Business Bureau rates them an F, please call them and verify this information 530-274-5636. When I called they didn't even have to look them up they just said "I hope you didn't do business with them." They go by another name US Precision Machine, they probably changed their name after numerous complaints. I called the police department in the county where this business resides (Nevada county in California police dept phone number- 530-550-2323) and was told they receive about a call a week regarding complaints of this business and don't know how they stay in business. They don't answer phone calls or emails, they won't even answer the Better Business Bureau. I have filed complaints with the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection, Discover Card and will soon take them to small claims court. The engine we received has issues, and we have yet to receive the $1000 engine core deposit refund after sending them our core. If they ever do answer the phone they say so and so is out and to call back. They lie and say a check was sent. They will say the person who handles that has quit. They will send you an email stated they owe you a certain amount and once you file a dispute with your credit card they lie and say your core was bad. California Engine aka US Precision Machine has admitted they owe us money but we have yet to receive any refund or check of any kind. NEVER use this company no matter what they tell you. They seem to know how to work the system with adding wording in their contract such as "by returning your core to us, you agree to be bound by our determination which is final." So as far as I see it, if they want to say your core is bad and tell 10 people that, they just pocketed 10,000 dollars. Pretty good scam. I will post everywhere I can to let people know the kind of people and the type business this is. STAY AWAY!!!! THEY SCAM CUSTOMERS AND IT IS A FRAUD!

Depends on their service recovery .

So far, difficult to deal with... Took 4 weeks longer than they said to complete the engines, then only received one gasket kit for two engines. When I received second gasket kit, it was the wrong kit.

Then to top it all off, they are now telling me that I have to pay for shipping to return the cores when I repeatedly asked if it was included, and was told "Yes".

Will update if service gets better...

I am very pleased at the quality of the engine supplied by your company. The engine appears to be what it was reported to be with low milage (38000) and in good condition. Thanks for the good work and helpful people.

I am exceptionally satisfied with the California Engines which I had installed in my 1977 Dodge pickup truck approximately 2 years ago. It has performed very well and I am very satisfied with the power and performance of the engine. I have just exceeded 20,000 miles on the California Engines and the gas mileage and performance are quite satisfactory. I would highly recommend California Engines for their performance and cost effectiveness.

I used this company and I have had excellent service out of my Toyota 22RE engine. My Toyota could not be running better. I have recommended them to several of my friends and they have all been happy.

CALIFORNIA ENGINES did a great job getting my order out fast and the engine I needed. I am very satisfied with the service and the way everything was handled. I would recommend them to anyone interested in doing the work themselves and having what you need when you need it.

Must say I'm really impressed with the service you offer your customers, I already received my package, meaning time from order completed to delivery less than 24 hrs!
Thanks again!
