All parts are carefully dismantled in one of our state-of-the-art dismantling plants, inspected for damage, and inventoried with consistent and accurate descriptions to ensure their quality.
LKQ procures late model, low mileage salvage as the resource for our quality recycled engine line. LKQ recycled engines go through the following process:

- After viability has been confirmed, all fluids are drained
- Units are removed from vehicle and separated from the transmission
- Compression is checked on all cylinders
- Engines are sealed and banded to pallet
- LKQ recycled engines may include the following parts left on the engine for convenience but are NOT included under the engine warranty:
- A/C Compressor
- Steering Pump
- Air Cleaner Assembly
- Wire Harness
- Exhaust Manifolds
- Throttle Body
- Engine Computer

- Connectors and cables are carefully unplugged, and inspected for damage.
- Pans are removed for further draining and inspection of fluid.
- Torque converters are removed, drained, inspected and re-attached.
