AAA Engine claims to re-manufacture engines, but has set up a warranty that allows them to send a painted, used engine with no recourse for consumer. All options offered to address the faulty engine through AAA Engine cost as much or more than the engine itself. Further, the consumer has to pay a third party as much or more than the cost of the engine to identify the problems with the engine in order to take legal action. Obviously this I assume has deterred the majority of legal actions from consumers. I suspect they are a completely fraudulent business taking advantage of their consumers financial situation and vulnerable position. | On 2/10/2015, purchased a remanufactured engine for 2003 4Runner from AAA Engine as advertised at at that time. As of today, advertisement is still up. Had shipped to Woodburn, OR and installed by | Case Automotive , an established local auto shop. Cost of engine was $2,800. | Per Case Automotive, engine was installed by technician in accordance with guidance provided by AAA Engine. After installation, Case | Automotive found the following: | 1. Significant leak in rear main seal that would have to be replaced. | 2. Error messages around cam sensors/timing and engine running poorly. | I contacted AAA Engine who claimed this was always do to poor installation and that they would not cover any costs associated with repair. I elected to send to Toyota Dealership to make repairs and inspect the quality of the engine. | After inspection, Toyota found the following: | 1. Rear main seal was improperly installed, causing significant leaks. | 2. Crank Shaft installed had large gash complicating leaking rear main seal and needed to be replaced | 3. Timing was set incorrectly and had to be redone | 4. Camshaft was installed incorrectly, causing it to break. Broken pieces damaged some timing gears. All had to be replaced. | 5. Timing chain was stretched out of allowable specifications, had to be replaced (Triggered check engine light). | 6. Rear plugs were leaking due to engine heads not being properly machined. Heads needed to be remachined. | 7. Silver paint found in oil even after multiple flushes. Matches paint on exterior of engine. | 8. Catalytic converter failed and had to be replaced. Technician speculates this was due to the paint chips in the oil, which likely damaged the
