Suggested Installation Guideline

Suggested Installation Guideline

Please Note:
We want you to be a HAPPY CUSTOMER and have excellent results with your replacement engine, so please consider these handy suggestions carefully and share them with your installer. Remember, your warranty comes to you directly from the supplier of your engine, not from Low Mileage Engines.

  1. Most suppliers warranty the long block and its internal lubricated parts ONLY! Bolt-on accessories, wiring and sensors are not warranted. Turbochargers
    (Superchargers, Turbos) are not part of the long block and are not warranted unless stated, in writing.
  2. VITAL! Inspect the engine carefully before signing the trucking company delivery receipt! If damage is noted, DO NOT USE the engine, NOTE, in writing any shipping damage you find ON THE DELIVERY RECEIPT, and call your supplier.
  3. Please have your mechanic carefully inspect all gaskets and seals, and replace if needed. No one warranties gaskets or seals. Any engine that “blows” a head gasket, or is over-heated will automatically void your Warranty
  4. Turn over engine crankshaft by hand at least 2 full 360° turns BEFORE installation(720°). This is IMPORTANT!
  5. If yours is a timing BELT engine with more than 30,000 miles, you should replace the timing belt, tensioners, and components. (We recommend a “Gates” Brand Timing Belt Kit). There’s no warranty on timing belts, Chains, or their components. Timing Chains need not be replaced.
  6. If yours is a GM 3.1L engine, you should replace the Intake Manifold Gasket.
  7. Install a new Water Pump on replacement engine with over 30,000 miles
  8. Install a new Thermostat
  9. Install a new Rear Main Seal
  1. Install all new belts and hoses.(Power Steering, Alternator, Fan, Radiator Hoses, Etc.)
  2. Install and gap new Spark Plugs
  3. Change engine oil and replace oil filter
  4. Change oil and filter again after 500 miles of driving
  5. Add new Anti-Freeze / Coolant
  6. Install new Air Filter and Fuel Filter
  7. Insall new gaskets on your valve cover(s)
  8. Reseal your oill pan
  9. Install a new Front Crank Seal
  10. It is highly recommended that you buy a new Radiator, or take your existing radiator to a professional Radiator Shop, and have it back flushed, flow tested, leak tested, and “rodded out” if needed.

Keep all your paperwork and receipts for parts and labor detailing that the above steps were performed during installation. In the unlikely event of a warranty claim you will need to send copies to your supplier.

Almost always; No paperwork, No Warranty!

Any modification or alteration of factory fuel delivery system, exhaust system, or Electronic Control Module or use of this engine in Racing or Off-Road usage will VOID any suppliers’ Limited Warranty.
