    finally I found myself lucky enough to gather one of those engines. So I just want to tell you my experinces: the engine yields aluminium, engine parts and steel. It takes 90 mins to recycle and (last not least) it yields a ton of experience: it bumped my (mechanics) experience from 12 to 14 :) And once you put it into the recycler, you have no chance to get it out or recycle something else.
    Good luck getting the engine - its a great piece of loot :)

    Where do you find this rusty engine? I presume in one of the old rusty cars you see in some of the lots, but is there one in particular or is it random?

    yea, if you are lucky enough to find a rusty car in a red zone, it shows up like a chest in the radar. You go there, open the car (as you would open a chest) and then you can use the car again which (hopefully) gives you an engine. But I read that not all rusty cars give you an engine - probably random. Then you are burdened with the engine as with an infected box and have to put it on the back of your chopper...
    I have not found different rusty cars (just found _one_ actually), so I cannot tell if there are different types of cars...
    Those rusty cars appearing seem to be a rather rare event - but hey: its a massive loot :)

    i can confirm that you can find a rusty engine in ANY zone. i have gotten them in yellow and green pine zones. unfortunately, i don't have a chopper so they were wasted..

    Thanks for the info! Ive seen the rusty cars often but they were always empty (no actions). I still have yet to find one that actually has anything :-(

    When you find a car with an engine, it will show up as a box/chest on mini map.
    I have found four of them so far, but Im saving them, since I am still doing electronics recycling.

    Dang, 4?! That is awesome! Like I said, I find the old rusty car but never anything that has an action. Hope I will find something soon! That would be cool

    I,ve found two of them, and if I can remember correctly, one of them was in a suitcase rather than a car.

    they may show as a crate on the minimap, but they are only found in rusty cars.

    I got one from i think a green or yellow zone. I was curious what was that since i just came back from this game few days ago. I set it aside first and farm the area first since I have no idea what it is. Unfortunately, forgot to carrt it on my way home.

    I’ve read that there are 2 different types of the engine that give different chances of mats in the recycler

    I FINALLY scored one and then a second one a couple days later. Not recommended to recycle until you raise your mechanics level in the recycler. Otherwise, you wont get much from it, except a nice boost to your level.

    Entered over 50 times in red and over 100 times in yellow zones, still not a single engine.

    This game really hates me to get engine parts.

    Honestly, dude, it took me a while til I actually landed one. I actually forgot that it was even a new part of the game

    i haven't seen a rusty engine so far. Maybe it's because I can not use the chopper to take it home?
    (IA.. Chopper finished but no driver skill...)
