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

I'm in va but on the totally opposite side over in the staunton and harrisonburg area. That sucks dude did you check the oil and go over everything really good when you bought it? just sounds like to me someone has been neglecting some regular maintenance. 166k on the hx and still runs just as good at 67k when I bought it aug. '99 but also I've been good on the maint.
