Engine Problems - Your Options


Excessive smoke from tailpipe; excessive oil consumption; knocking or tapping sounds; low oil pressure; low compression; water mixing in oil; oil getting into the air cleaner and/or radiator.

What are the typical causes of car engine problems? Normal mileage wear and tear; poor maintenance; lubrication problems; excessive overheating.

My vehicle suffered major engine damage, now what?  So when an engine “dies,” it does not have to be the end of your vehicle. Smart shoppers, like smart motorists, make better decisions when they know all of the options. When a car or truck needs major engine repair, the first response and reaction of many consumers is to buy a new or used vehicle. Sometimes disposing of your current vehicle might make sense, but often it’s simply not necessary, or even the best decision.

JASPER Products Are Everywhere!


These days JASPER products can be found just about anywhere. Just ask Roman’s Design, a California-based business specializing in custom-built machinery.

Roman’s most recent activity involves the Royal Canadian Air Cadets with a contract for 11 glider launching systems as part of their glider training program.

The launcher is a single winch drum built on a solid steel frame. It's powered by a JASPER Remanufactured International 7.3L diesel engine producing 325 horsepower. When placed at the end of a runway, or field, the 6,700 pound system can pull a tethered glider into the air at speeds in excess of 80 mph.

JASPER, Continuous Growth!


November 2, 2015  JASPER's Engine Division is currently undergoing major renovations at its Wernsing Road location. Associates in the newly designated work area "POD 20" just completed their first unit, a remanufactured Chevrolet 2.2L engine. This particular POD will also produce a variety of GM V-6 engines and big blocks. "Overall, the move from front to back went great," said Ricardo Bravo, Group Leader of POD 20.

The new PODs are incorporating LED overhead lighting, expanded work areas and improved product flow for optimal production.
