Dumb question but...

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Dumb question but...

I was wondering if you put a new engine in a car do they roll back the odometer, so it hits 0. When you put in another engine into your car can you put the miles the engine has instead of what your odemeter says? Just wondering

no you cant without a drill that has reverse, MAYBE. and i think thats illegal anyway. also the miles are also on your car itselg let alone the rest of your drive train

^^It is indeed illegal, in the U.S. anyway.

I think either a)you have to buy a new odometer OR b)have proof that it is a new/newer drivetrain.

Edit: It is illegal here. You can roll it back as long as your not planning on selling it, but if you werent gonna sell why would you ask.

No i dont want to sell and I didnt get a new engine or anything i was just wondering. I just got a new cat converter put in and I remember someone at the shop got a new engine. I was curious.

I know how to do it in a matter of minutes without a drill. :hi: I wouldn't. Come on, who really uses a drill? That's just thrown around by people who talk about it... right?
