If my engine has been previously replaced, can I use the IMS Solution?

If your engine was replaced from 2000-late 2004 it likely uses a single row IMS bearing, even if the car was a 1997-early 2000 model originally equipped with a dual row IMS bearing. This is because the manufacturer used the current technology available instead of original equipment when remanufacturing engines. If your engine was replaced after mid 2005 you will have the M97 style bearing that is not serviceable, even if your car was built from 2000-early 2005 or even earlier.
