NO, we do not charge a core! We rely on your honesty returning your old motor, please place your old engine in the crate your engine came in, and contact CCC for retrieval.

Once your usable engine is returned, running or not? this activates your unmatched REAL 3year unlimited mileage warranty! 

For any questions please email;

Please read the warranty and return policies below.

In the above core waiver; we explain the core must usable, do your do diligence and check your engine for Hydro Locking, rusting block? If you return an engine that cannot be used, you will then have to cover the return shipping cost and the 500. core to replace the engine we have sold you. So check and double check, if your engine appears to be unusable then do not send it back and simply pay the extra 350. to avoid return shipping cost. These rules also apply to all clients including those who bring their car to us for engine replacement.

Failure to follow these simple rules will prevent loss of any and all warranty! 


Our rebuilds include:

1. A fully inspected and tested core which consist of:

  A, Meticulously dipped and cleaned,

  B, Line bore inspected, not re bored! (This is a misleading operation on the part of the pretend re manufacturers, (SUCH AS PROMAR and JASPER) see the line bore misconception below))

  C, The Cylinders are fully inspected for any damage and if any bowling and or when deep scratches are present, the block is discarded! (We only use undamaged cores) (When a company explains how they oversize your cylinders; walk away, they just told you their second lie! See below information on oversising Northstar Cylinders, is NOT ALLOWED!)


2. Either a polished undamaged crank or a turned to 10/10 we never turn twice or more then this!

3. New rod and main bearings,

4. Wrist Pins,

5. New High Quality Hasting Rings!

6. Fully cleaned inspected Pistons, any signs of damage and the pistons are replaced.

  B, Polished and inspected Cams,

  C, Heads DO NOT have bearings, if the head and or cap is damaged the head is replaced!

Warranty and return policies; all our engine builds carry a three year unlimited mileage warranty as per our product warranty 'Strictly States', this warranty is unmatched in the engine rebuilding industry! The quality we put into our rebuilds gives us the confident to give these warranties.

All engines require a break procedure and that procedure needs to be done by a qualified professional, the use of break in oil is required to warranty your engine.

When using break in oils follow the directions provided by the manufacturer. Not using the specified procedures can or will result in the void of said warranty.

Return Policies;all our engines come with 100% Satisfaction guaranteed! This means if you decide to NOT install your new rebuilt engine, you have a 10 day period from your engines arrival date to set up a return and send your engine back for a full inspection.

Once we have received your return, inspected it to be in the same unmolested condition as it left our shops, we will determine your refund based upon restocking fees and or any incurred damages on the part of the consumer, minus any and all shipping charges we will not be responsible for. The engine purchase price will be refunded minus shipping charge.

Any added time to return your rebuilt engine can be extended if an agreement has been arranged between CCC, and the consumer. Otherwise we will assume the engine has been installed and all refunds will no longer be refunded.

Once the engine has been installed the warranty becomes valid and all Warranties from installation date will be honored between (CCC) Carroll Diesel Pros & 4x4's and no longer thru our PayPal or card services. All 'Terms and Conditions' become valid upon purchase date! No exceptions!





Honesty and integrity is our policy! Rebuilding an engine for our clients is what we do!

Here you "will not" find the pretend reman to pretend its new, misleading information?

Below we will explain the Northstar and the misleading information given by these misleading shops;

We will also add excerpts directly from GM's service instruction of the can do and cannot?


There are many companies offering anything they can to acquire your money for little to nothing in return, then there is those who have an old school list hoping to fool you into believing they will do the same and you'll except it because it sounds good!

We see many companies versing one another trying to explain why they are the better choice. It is both amazing and stupid on their part for their dishonesty, such as those incorrect people you will find on the CF with little to NO mechanical knowledge at all!??

Or their blind cohorts such as the infamous small company in Canada taking advantage of innocent people everyday!


So you ask what is the difference between these claims?


New Crated?


Re manufactured or the rebuilt?          


Lets see if we can give the truth for you to recognized the dishonest companies out there with only one goal, to deceive you out of your hard earned money?

Well, we all know there is extremely dishonest people such as NP, but what about those we have never heard of? Or those who seem to have good online reviews?

It is a shame to see so many dishonest people in the automotive industry, from the original manufacturer to the guy in the local mechanic shop! Yes, GM is a very dishonest company, I suppose it is because of necessity we still buy cars rather then to tell these people to shove it! I am sure you have all wanted to do that at one point or another?


Anyhow, lets get on with it; what is the difference between these crazy names given to the type of engine you would like to buy?

Crated; what is this all about? This name originated out of the simple fact the engine was put into a crate to be shipped out? Go Figure! But over time this became a name for what most would believe to be a new engine and a 100% complete ( meaning it was everything from the oil pan to the intake including all sensors etc..........

Boy has the term Crated engine been taken out of context over time? Today we see the guy claiming fame to the re manufactured engine calling his engine a Crated motor, Seriously!
