New Truck or New Engine - Exploring Your Diesel Options

You have determined your Cummins, Duramax, or Powerstroke engine needs to be replaced. You might be on the fence about whether you should replace the engine in your diesel, or just get a new truck. At Monument Street Auto Center in Baltimore, MD, we’re here to help.

Some cars are built to be cheap and economic - when a major component fails it’s sometimes better to just replace the whole vehicle. Diesel trucks are the opposite...they’re expensive, and built to last.

Unless your diesel is so old, rusty, and beat up that it shouldn’t be on the road anyway, replacing the engine is typically a worthwhile investment. If your truck is overall still in pretty good shape, and most of your issues can be traced to engine problems, replacing the engine will breathe new life into your truck and have you back on the road for years to come.

While diesel engines themselves can be pretty pricey, it won’t be anything compared to the cost of a new truck - if swapping the engine costs less than a new monthly payment will, it’s typically a good idea to stick with what you’ve got. Not to mention it’ll keep you in a truck you know the maintenance, repair, and reliability history of. Besides, a truck that runs is worth a lot more than one that doesn’t. You might find it difficult to sell or trade in for a fair price.

If your truck is in bad shape on the whole, you might be better off with a new one. If not, we can help. If you need a second opinion or want to weigh your options, call or stop by Monument Street Auto Center in Baltimore, MD anytime.
