A Core Charge Fee is a Pre-paid amount billed at the time of sale for your Old Engine (the Core) or Old Cylinder Head (the core).

The Engine or Cylinder Head Core must be “Like-for-Like” (Make, Model, and Type), no junkyard cores will be accepted.
Core Charge is Refundable if Your engine or cylinder head is in Good Rebuildable Condition with All Engine Components intact.
Full credit will be given Unless: Bore is Oversized .030 or more, Damaged parts, Missing Parts, and Exceptions are found.

These are bouncing around in the back of Big Rigs, so they can get damaged.
