Question LKQ Remanufactured Engine

As I stated in an earlier post, I had to put a new engine in my truck. Went to the Ford Dealer today to pick it up. I thought it was to suppose to be a remanufactured engine by Ford, but much to my surprise, it is a reman from LKQ Powertrain. The Service Manager said this is what I had agreed to and probably did. It was a couple of confusing days when I broke down seventy miles from home, pulling a trailer and told I needed a new engine. Anyway, does anyone have any knowledge (good or bad) about LKQ Powertrain remanufactured engines ?

They meet Ford specs and you got 3yrs and a 100k warranty so I wouldn't worry.

definitely do some research re: remanufactured engines

LKQ stands for like kind and quality.

LKQ is a big player - and they have been buying up a lot of companies in the automotive space

That said, it's likely that you got a good one; and when you buy a quality engine - it's great.
That's why they warranty them for 36-month, 100,000-miles covering parts and labor for the first 50,000 miles and parts only for an additional 50,000 miles (our warranty - lkq is similar)

I don't know a lot about their product, but I'd consider:

1. Quality - find out their defect rate. The last thing you want to do is pull this engine too -- especially if they don't cover labor costs. (for example ours is 1.9% - I recommend it as a benchmark)
2. Warranty (mileage, years, does is cover labor? this is critical)
3. Price - this one is important
- did the dealership mark it up? (most likely) find out the online price from lkq direct. since the warranty is w/ lkq - you really don't benefit from the dealer purchase.
- how are alternatives priced?

all reman engines are not the same -- but you shouldn't pay more than necessary.

just my 2cents.
