If you’re inexperienced with car engines, the best option is let a professional replace the engine for you. However, if you have to know-how to upgrade or replace the engine of your car yourself, you can find complete car engines and all the parts you need on eBay.

Types of engines

Petrol engines, as the name implies, run on petrol. They are the most common type of car engine. These engines are typically used in everyday commuter cars, including any smaller cars. Petrol engines use spark plugs, which ignite the air-fuel mixture to power the engine.

Diesel engines rely on heavily compressed air, which reaches a high enough temperature to cause ignition. Diesel engines are stronger and heavier than petrol engines, however, this also means they can be more expensive.

Both petrol and diesel engines are available on eBay from a variety of manufacturers, such as Ford, Audi, Volkswagen and BMW.
