Hopefully i can help..
Depends if the second hand engine is like for like as the old one it would be pretty hard to spot costmetically.unless there is documentation/paper trail saying as such the engine been replaced,what mileage the replacement engine had and at what mileage it was replaced in this car.if reconditioned.new then it should have a warranty...also engine number on the engine in the car doesnt match that on the cars v5c or exsisting engine number..I do hope this helps..if you need to ask anything else or include anything further then just continue before you rate
What does v5c mean? How can a lay person match the engine no. with v5c or existing engine no.
Hi..there thanks for your reply..
v5c in the uk is yours cars log book - the engine number will be in the log book
