21 August, 2023
Keeping Tata commercial vehicles running efficiently is important for businesses that rely on transportation to deliver goods and services. Tata Motors ProLife offers a solution for remanufacturing second-hand truck engines, ensuring a clean and state-of-the-art facility for disassembly and reassembly. This process gives a number of benefits, such as reduced downtime and 24-hour delivery of engines. 

However, before considering engine remanufacturing, it is crucial to identify when the engine requires overhauling or replacement. In this blog, we will discuss the key signs that indicate it's time to address engine issues and consider overhauling or replacing the engine.

1. Decreased Performance:

One of the most common reasons that your engine needs attention is a decline in performance. If you experience low power output, and a decline in acceleration while driving through a tough road, even after regular maintenance, it's a sign that your engine may need an overhaul. A thorough inspection by a qualified technician can help identify the issues.

2. Increase in Fuel Consumption:

If you notice an increase in fuel consumption despite maintaining consistent driving habits, it might be an indication that your engine's efficiency has decreased. This can be a result of worn out components or other internal problems that need to be addressed.

3. Unusual Noises:

Unusual and persistent noises, such as clattering, or grinding sounds, are clear signs that something is wrong. Ignoring these sounds can lead to severe damage, increasing repair costs.

4. Excessive Smoke Emissions:

Exhaust smoke can tell a lot about the health of your engine. If you notice excessive smoke coming from the exhaust, it could indicate various issues. If you observe excessive smoke emissions from your exhaust, consult a Tata Motors ProLife immediately.

5. Oil Leaks:

Engine oil plays a crucial role in lubricating various components to reduce friction and prevent wear. If you notice oil puddles or stains beneath your vehicle after it has been parked for some time, it indicates an oil leak. Oil leaks can lead to engine failure.


Recognizing the signs that your second-hand engine needs attention is important for maintaining your commercial vehicle. By paying attention to signs, you can identify engine problems early on and make informed decisions regarding engine overhauling or replacement.
