i just bought this car ... and i need to get it running soon or i will be in a good deal of trouble ... i was asked to come to this forum by someone on yahoo answers ...
my car is now in the port potomac (virginia) region and i need a good mechanic too ... let me know if you know anyone who deals with engine replacement and engine repair.
thanks a lot guys.
you can definitely find a motor for cheap in the market place here on Honda-Tech, but you're a trial member and that wont get lifted for like a week or 2. ummm...check craig's list, http://www.hmotorsonline.com
has a jdm d15b for like 500 but it will be obd1 i believe and your car is obd2. d16y8 is a expletiveing douche of a motor lol...i went through 2 of them..same problem each time and its the same as yours...spun bearing due to shitty oil pump.
someone from VA help this dude
good luck man
