I bought a long block 350 Chev marine motor for my boat. I bought the long block because it came with a 2 year warranty. After install the motor continued to push coolant and pressurize, overflowing out of my heat ex-changer. I paid the company that did the install to replace the heat exchanger, check all kinds of potential issues. Only to find out that the head gasket was blown on a brand new motor. We sent the invoice to S&J to have them cover only a small part of the repairs and they refused. Brand new motor with not even an hour on it.

I purchased a Ford 302 LB engine with S and J through my local repair shop. The engine ended up having a bad head gasket from day one resulting in coolant overflowing the radiator.

Only after replacing the fan, radiator, thermostat and a/c condenser did it dawn on anyone to check the brand new engine for a head gasket problem. VERY frustrating and not the quality I had expected after seeing all the claims on their website.

I purchased my first and definitely my last engine from these guys. After installing it myself, I found out the front crankshaft seal was leaking oil. I spoke with Pat at the company, and he told me to just change the seal (a four hour job) that it was probably pinched. I changed the seal with no luck. Took my truck to my mechanic, who went through three seals (from the Ford dealer) just to find out it still leaked. Cost me $82/hr for 3.5 hours. According to the warranty, I will only be reimbursed for $50/hr. I called the company and spoke with Pat, and this time he said that I should try a Mazda seal because he had a customer that had the same problem on the same engine. I have a Ford!!! I explained the money part of it, that I now have to pay $300 more dollars to have the seal changed again. He then said I could purchase a premium warranty for $200. Why should I have to pay extra for something that should be done right the first time? I understand problems happen, but this company has not made one move to keep me a returning customer.

I blame myself for not understanding and reading the small print of S & J Engines warranty or should I say S & S Engines because same company, same games, same complaints over and over. I was drawn to the 7 year warranty. I should have known if it looks too good to be true then it probably is. The warranty does not cover most of the engine and they will come up with every excuse to deny your claim.

There are 2 pieces of information that I should have read closely in their terms and conditions. First they max out their labor payment at $850. (which they will never pay because they will find an excuse to blame your certified installer) Second their 7 year warranty ONLY COVERS THE SHORT BLOCK "Labor reimbursement will (NOT) be paid for an engine removal unless a defect caused during manufacturing is present in the short block".

I found out afterwards that the short block is just the engine block itself and does not include the cylinderheads or timing components or anything else that comes on a long block which is what you are buying!

Very shady company who wont stand behind their product! IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE THEN IT IS! DO NOT BUY OR YOU WILL BE SORRY!

Mechanic's best friend. They've saved me thousands over the years.

I've probably ordered over 30 engines from S&J and have only had to use the warranty on one. They build the engines to last.

Seriously... you can't go wrong with S&J. They'll make sure that you get exactly what you need at an excellent price.

Check out their price match policy.

I won't go anywhere else. These guys are the best in the industry.

I made the mistake of running on a noisy engine for far too long, so by the time I brought it in to get serviced, my engine was done for. S & J Engine did a great job at getting my engine back to new, and I really appreciate the hard work. My car runs beautifully, and it was worth every penny.

Needed to replace an engine on my '67 Mustang. Ordered online and received a call right away to verify my order. Early the next week, the crate showed up and I was ready to get to work.

The engine is flawless and my baby is running smooth.

My email is reedebhart@yahoo.com if you have any questions.

I will be installing a 302 cu.in. longblock that I bought 2 years ago from S&J engines shortly. I will let you know how it goes.
I have rebuilt auto engines in the past. I have a mechanical background from auto (helicopters Chinook and hueys 1966-69 including Vietnam. I also have been trained in jet engines while in the military.
I didn't have time to rebuild my 302 and build my loghouse too. That is why I bought my longblock from S&J.
Anyone that has any questions about my blog can call me at 503-695-5583 or my cell @ 503-752-6452. As for S&J ; I will know how good their engine rebuild is when I fire up mine. Robert Bitton

Bought an engine from there and had it installed at GMC dealship (auto is a GMC product).
Car did not make it home from the dealership without the engine I just bought from S&J making all kinds of noises. Had it towed back to the dealership, then shipped to S&J.
Working with Dan in their warranty division..... So far so good, I will update everyone as to how they stand behind their product this week. My experience so far has been good and if I don't expect any problems as the engine has less than 20 (twenty) miles on it.....

Scam Artists! I bought an engine from S&S or SS&J or S&J whatever they are calling themselves now. It started having problems at 10K I sent it back recently and I too was dealing with Dan the warranty guy. My mechanic explained how the piston was defective and had failed but Dan insists that I was responsible for the defective piston they used, telling me it had to be timing or a vacuum leak. I'm in the process of fighting with this company to get my warranty and I also feel horrible about referring my friends to this company. I had researched the this company with the BBB and they were accredited but has since been revoked. Not hard to see why. Either employees wrote these positive comments or they haven't had an issue yet, I was very happy with mine for nearly a year. lol. Now i'm getting ready to book a flight back up to Spokane and take care of this in person and take action if necessary.

Business Response:

Oh, "Nick".... This person has posted numerous 'reviews' using different names and different geographic locations. The exact wording on nearly all of them, too, or a slight variation thereof. On this site he's written several postings using the same method. We have worked extensively with this person attempting to reach a fair and equitable solution for him and for us, to no avail. -------------------------------------------------------- I want to personally assure anyone looking for a replacement engine for their vehicle that every step of our remanufacturing facility is cutting-edge and manned by the finest engine pro's in the business. Come to our website, grab the phone and give us a call. You'll like dealing with us and you'll LOVE your engine from us!

Do not buy from this company. They are total scam artists. Paid $2000 for an engine and had it installed and the engine seized. Told S&J about the problem, and had it shiped back to them for replacement. After several weeks and no response via telephone or email, got a letter saying the engine problem was not their fault and they would not replace it, and then wanted $600 to return the engine to me, or they would "discard" it. Are you kidding me? Unfortunately didn't look them up in the BBB until after the purchase was made. Their status has been revoked and they have several complaints against them! Really, find somewhere else to buy from!!!

Do not purchase a engine from these guys, they do not honor the warranty and don??t trust them if you already bought an engine from them. Record all your conversations. They lie and make up stories to get out of paying. I installed the engine 3 times with all the expenses on me. They never reimburse me at all. I dealt with Dan their warranty guy for 5 months, paying out of pocket 4200 dollars. They still have the so-called warranty engine and want 250 dollars to get it back saying there??s nothing wrong with it. The dealership said it was a bad engine (metal in oil and intake), the second shop said it was a bad engine (metal in oil and scared cylinder walls) and the third shop said the same thing. I finally had to buy another engine from someone else--now my truck runs great. 39 complaints from bbb and 3 from the AG office. Worst company ever. They have changed their name from S and S to S and J engines. DON??T BUY FROM THEM!

True professionals! These guys made me feel respected and valued. I brought our beloved family Forester into the shop (with kids in tow) fearful that she was on her last leg. But the guys at S&J gave her new life and, thanks to their superior service and reassuring warranty, the Forester will be reliable for many more years. They even gave the kids a tour around the shop and my son is still talking about all the neat tools. I don't know much about cars and engines but as a driver and a Mom, I know I would recommend S&J to anyone. Thanks guys!

I have worked with S and J Engines a few times now and they have been exceptional to work with. Plus they have saved me time and money. The 7 year warranty is amazing as well! I am sorry if other people have had some difficulty, must have been a misunderstanding! Thanks S and J

If you're a car hobbyist like myself, these guys are the shop to go to.

I usually start a new project once every two years and they have always provided the heart of my cars.

The engines are like brand new and their warranty is
