About Engines Bare

The Peugeot bare engine is the power machine of your car, literally converting energy, in the form of fuel, into movement, known as an internal combustion engine. When you buy a replacement Peugeot bare engine you are buying an engine that is basically just a crankcase and cylinder head, not a complete full engine, which is why this is commonly referred to as a short block engine. This means you will be buying the case of the engine which houses the cylinders and components but does not include these parts.

The Peugeot bare engine is built to be strong and solid. Usually made of steel, cast iron or aluminum, it is the crux of your car and needs to be in good condition and maintained well to do its job properly.  

There are different types of engines so it is a good idea to make sure you know which type of engine you would like to buy. It is important to make sure that the type of bare engine you purchase is compatible with your car. Straight engines are a common type of engine and are lighter and more compact than other types of engine. Run with four cylinders which are all set in a straight line, this type of engine is usually the most economical to run and are generally cheaper to make than other types of engine. Another common engine type is a V Type engine. The V Type engine is usually used in high performance cars, such as racing cars offering high speed performance when needed. The length of the engine is shorter in a V Type and the cylinders are arranged at 90 degree angles from each other, differing to the straight cylinder arrangement in the straight engine. A boxer engine is usually fitted in the rear of the car, unlike most engines which are usually found under the bonnet. The boxer engine has two cylinder heads at opposite ends of the crankshaft. The boxer style engine has a low center of gravity so is stable and solid, and runs smoothly when the car is idling, but it is a lot wider than other engine types so can be tricky to fit into some small cars and also has a tendency to be noisier than other engine types. A diesel engine is different to other engine types in that it runs on diesel instead of petrol. Another major difference is a diesel engine doesn't need spark plugs because ignition of the engine happens by the fuel and air being compressed before it reaches the combustion chamber. A diesel engine is more fuel efficient than a petrol engine and tends to last much longer than other engine types.

You may need to replace your Peugeot bare engine because your old engine has broken or maybe you are undertaking a project and wish to build a new engine or wanting a Peugeot bare engine that performs better and is more fuel efficient. It is important to search for the right make, model and year of your car, as well as the type of engine that you require, to get the right Peugeot bare engine for your car. If your engine needs replacing there are a number of things that could have gone wrong. It is often a cheaper option to replace your engine with a Peugeot bare engine and use salvageable parts from the broken engine. You will have the option to buy a new bare engine or a used bare engine that has been salvaged  and rebuilt from a car that has been in an accident or just an old car that is no longer on the road.

Peugeot trivia

  • It was also in 1913 (some might say because of the Indy 500 win) that Peugeot were responsible for the production of half of all of the cars in France. That quickly made them one of the world's biggest names in the automotive industry.
  • It's hard to believe, but the Peugeot company was founded in 1810! Of course, it didn't make cars then. Instead, it built pepper mills, salt mills and, eventually bicycles. It wasn't until 1889 that the first Peugeot car was made (they only made four of them, and they were powered by steam).
  • You know the name Ettore Bugatti and the brand that bears his name, but did you know that Bugatti also designed the four-cylinder engine in 1912 for the Peugeot Bébé? You can't miss that unmistakable Bugatti look once you know that fact, and the car quickly became France's best selling car.
  • It's a dubious claim to fame, but the first recorded stolen car was a Peugeot! The car, belonging to Baron de Zuylen, was nicked by his mechanic in 1896, but the thief was caught, and the car returned to its rightful owner.
  • It was Armand Peugeot who turned the company into car manufacturing. He called the company the Société des Automobiles Peugeot (Peugeot Automotive Society) and was the one who approved the famous lion emblem that is still used today.
