Having an old car comes with a variety of challenges. Some are easy to fix but many others are just deal breakers. If your old car is presenting any of the challenges mentioned below, we’d suggest you sell it as junk.
Presence of rust
Rust can be one of the hardest things to fix in an old car. If you notice signs of flaking and rust on the car’s frame or body, it’s a sign you need to get rid of that car. Rust in an old car can spread very easily. If you notice rust on the engine and other areas such as under the bonnet, unfortunately your car needs some major work done.
Frame and body damage
The cost of fixing a car’s frame and body can be extremely high. Most old cars have significant frame and body damage which is costly to repair. When a frame is shoddy, it could be time to get rid of the car as junk.
Leaks on the head gasket
This is another common problem with old cars. You may notice a brown or dirty coolant fluid and this is probably a sign that the engine may have issues. Head gasket leaks and failures can be very expensive to recover from. If your car is showing signs of such form of damage, it’s best to sell it as junk.

This usually occurs in old automatic cars. Issues with the transmission occur very frequently as the car gets old. First thing you are likely to notice is a transmission leak. You will notice a leak if the transmission levels are always low when you use a dipstick to check. Transmission problems usually occur because of poor car maintenance.
Noise is usually a sign that there’s a problem with the car’s transmission. If you always notice a strange noise when shifting gears, there’s probably something wrong. Transmission problems can be hard to fix especially if coupled with a variety of other car issues.
If your car has any of the forms of damage we’ve mentioned above together with brake problems, you really should consider selling it as junk car. Brake pads, rotors or calipers may need replacement or tuning. As much as this can be done with ease, it can be such a waste of money if the car is too old. Consider the amount of time and money you spend on such replacements.
