Common Terms Related to Used and Rebuilt Auto Parts

It's no secret that automotive repairs can be expensive, especially for classic cars and other vehicles for which parts are difficult to find. Used and rebuilt auto parts are often a cheaper alternative to purchasing new components for your vehicle. If you're not an expert on cars, you may find some of the terminology used to describe rebuilt parts confusing. To help you with your search for cheap used and rebuilt car or truck parts, here is a rundown on some of the most frequently-used terms in the business.

  • Salvaged - An automobile that is badly damaged due to an accident, vandalism or other event and is in such a bad state that an insurance company will not pay to repair it. These vehicles are sent to salvage yards to be stripped and sold for parts.
  • Junkyard - An area filled with unwanted mechanical, electrical and other devices. Junkyards often have salvaged autos or used vehicle parts.
  • Rebuilt - Auto part that has been taken apart and reassembled with improved components. This is typically done by a third party, such as a parts dealer.
  • Refurbished - Used auto part that was returned to the manufacturer due to a malfunction or defect. The manufacturer repairs the part and sells it at a reduced price.
  • Custom - A rebuilt part that is made to order for a specific type of vehicle.
  • Bumper - The bar mounted horizontally behind a car beneath the trunk.
  • Engine - Part in a car that produces the power needed for the vehicle to run.

    Many times replacing parts in your automobile can be an expensive process. New car parts, especially those from the dealership, tend to cost quite a bit of money, and could be hard to find if you have an older truck, SUV or car. An alternative to buying a brand new transmission or engine for your vehicle may be to look for auto parts that are only sightly used, or have been rebuilt. Of course, there is a down side to buying used parts; the dealer that you are working with may not be entirely aware of the history of a refurbished engine, and you may encounter problems later. Therefore, it is important to spend some time researching different affordable places to either purchase or look for motors, bumpers or other parts. To begin to research, start by determining whether you are looking for specific things, like if you are restoring a classic car, or you just need to stock up on salvageable parts for your auto body shop. Then, try looking up a few junk yards in your area; visiting a junk yard can be hit or miss, but if you can find the car parts that you need, they are usually much cheaper than ordering them from an auto dealer. Salvage yards usually have vehicles that are going to be destroyed either way, so if you are willing to dig through the cars, you man often find slightly used tires, authentic parts, and more. Another resource to consider is online companies. Though prices vary if your automobile is foreign or domestic, you can often order custom parts at discounted rates. So whether you are making a simple repair to your car, or doing a complete restoration, the used auto parts can help you do this cheaply.
