Does a New Engine Reset Your Odometer?

Engine Replacement: What You Need to Know

Odometers and The Law

When it comes to vehicle odometers and the mileage they represent, there are laws affecting what you can and cannot do with that odometer. Federal law says you cannot disconnect, reset, or alter the reading on the odometer. You also can’t have someone else make the changes for you. You cannot drive a vehicle when the odometer is disconnected or malfunctioning. However, you can legally replace the odometer if yours breaks. If you need odometer repair or engine replacement in South Chesterfield, VA, why not give the team at Titan Auto and Tire a call, or stop by the shop to speak with the team about how they can help you.

Does replacing the Engine Reset the Odometer?

The simple answer to the question is no, replacing the engine does not reset the odometer. The odometer measures (in mileage) the wear and tear on many parts of your vehicle, not just the engine. Therefore, your odometer doesn’t return to zero when replacing your engine.
