JASPER Offers Remanufactured Subaru 2.5L SOHC Boxer Engine

Jasper Engines & Transmissions, the nation’s leader in remanufactured products, announces the availability of its remanufactured Subaru 2.5L boxer engine. This SOHC four-cylinder engine is available on exchange for the following vehicles:

1999-2010 Impreza/Forester
2000-2009 Outback/Legacy
2002-2007 Baja

“This remanufactured JASPER engine offers several advantages,” said Brad Boeglin, JASPER New Product Development Group Leader.  “We use multi-layer stainless steel design head gaskets, with larger embossments and coated with a rubber-based synthetic material to stop oil leaks.  Cylinder heads are installed with NEW torque-to-yield bolts to provide even clamp load and reduce head gasket failure.”

“The pistons are a JASPER-exclusive design that improves cylinder-to-wall clearance and oil drain back capability,” Boeglin said. “The pistons include a graphite coating to help prevent dry startup and piston scuffing.”

“The cylinder block is torque plate honed, a process which eliminates cylinder distortion after the head is bolted and torqued to the block,” he added.
 
Additional updates include: 100% installation of a NEW timing belt tensioner, idler pulleys, water pump and belt, which prevents the chance of timing component failure.  The engine is also live-run tested with recorded inspections of temperatures, oil pressure, vacuum and compression; assuring reliability and providing piece of mind.  A black-light inspection occurs after testing to ensure there are no oil leaks.

The JASPER remanufactured Subaru 2.5L SOHC boxer engine is covered by JASPER’s 3-Year/100,000 mile nationwide transferable parts and labor warranty. Full warranty disclosure is available on our website, or upon request.

CP Diesel & Automotive

The Customer Profile for this blog post spotlights CP Diesel & Automotive in St. Cloud, Florida. Primarily a medium-duty repair facility specializing in Ford, Chevy and Dodge (RAM) diesel pickup trucks. CP Diesel & Automotive is also a full-service location for passenger car and truck repair. Owner Christopher Ofeldt worked as a crane operator for 10 years and learned diesel repair and maintenance through that occupation. In February of 2008, Christopher enrolled at a Universal Technical Institute campus in Central Florida. After graduating, Christopher found a job at a nearby Ford dealership and worked in the diesel department for a brief time until he and his fiancé cashed in their life savings to open CP Diesel & Automotive in 2011. Located at 2013 Jaffa Drive in St. Cloud since its opening, CP Diesel & Automotive originally started in a 25 X 80 foot warehouse with one lift. Later, the business expanded into a second warehouse measuring 50 X 80 feet with three service bays. A new location is currently under construction that will accommodate five service bays and 4,000 square feet of space. "We pride ourselves as being a one-stop shop," said Ofeldt. "It's where our community and travelers can have their vehicles serviced from bumper to bumper." Another service provided by CP Diesel & Automotive is customer pick up when leaving their vehicle for repairs, or they can pick up a vehicle and return it to the customer once the service is complete. Of the three employees at CP Diesel & Automotive, two are ASE Master Certified Technicians. The company reimburses its employees for their ASE testing. The company also purchases on-line training programs and live seminars. Employee pay is based on education and certifications obtained. For the past three years, CP Diesel & Automotive has been an installer of JASPER remanufactured engines, transmissions, diesel fuel components and turbochargers. "We use JASPER products because of their nationwide warranty, quick availability and knowledgeable staff," said Ofeldt. CP Diesel & Automotive has experienced steady growth over the past four and a half years. With their new facility nearing completion, and plans to open a second location in the next five to seven years, CP Diesel & Automotive will continue to provide quality workmanship at a reasonable price with the best components available.
