Foton Engine rebuild/recondition
Does My Foton Need An Engine Rebuild/Engine Recondition?
There are a few telltale signs that your Foton’s engine is on the way out or completely gone and ready for a rebuild. You may hear strange knocking noises from inside your Foton’s engine, there could be smoke coming from the exhaust, it might be losing coolant, the car won't start or the engine seizes.
When Foton engines die a decision needs to be made. Do you buy a new car, rebuild the engine or swap the engine over for a secondhand or reconditioned engine.
The personal attachment to the Foton and its functionality might make rebuilding the engine a more viable and cost worthy option. Perhaps your Foton is a rare find, it's fitted out as your work vehicle or you have put so much money in it would be silly to let it go.
An engine rebuild isn’t something you want to tackle at home. Only a professional mechanic with experience in Foton engine building should carry out this job.
An engine builder will remove the engine from the Foton, strip the engine down, work out which parts need to be replaced and put it back together or they might suggest you buy an engine that's already been reconditioned and swap the engines over. Swapping a blown engine over with one that's working can save a lot of time if you're in a rush to get your Foton back on the road.
