    Default Engine for Honda Civic 97 Automatic

    Hi guys,

    I've a civic 97, the problem is that its head gasket has burnt down again. Well the thing is that the aluminum facing where the gasket sits, its been damaged and cannot be repaired, we've changed the gasket 3-4 times in the last year. So according to the mechanic engine needs to be changed because of the damaged aluminum facing.

    What do you guys think about that? My dad is saying to get it checked from honda's official workshop to verify the statement given by the mechanic.

    If it is indeed true what engine do you suggest to swap the old one with?

    Also there is this problem, on cng when i slow down the car RPM goes way to low and the engine turns off, the severity of this is that even if i slow down the car for speed breakers it turns off, some times it doesn't happens but this problem is presisting, what do you think is the issue? Bear in mind its automatic so does it means the chip settings needs to be changed?

    Help needed cos it would be expensive, don't want to overspend and not get good results.

    Ok yesterday we opened up the engine it was as bad as the mechanic said. The only option left now is to go for an engine swap. So again my question is what engine to go for? I'd like it to be around the same power and it should be economical as its a regularly driven car.

    What are your thoughts about Civic 2005's engine? I am new to this so don't mention the model of the engine i'd be able to understand if you tell me which car it comes in/

    Looking forward to your replies this time

    go to honda classic in I 10 and consult with them, go to them early morning so that they can check without being in a hurry, if they say that the engine needs replacement then go for the original d16y8.

    the prices dont seem too bad... make sure the engine is complete (uncut wiring, ecu etc). Rates I got in Karachi are:

    D15B 3 Stage for 38K
    ECU for 5.5K
    Tranny 20K
    installation for 5K.
    Civic '99 VTi Oriel D15B 3-Stage VTEC A/T
    JVC KD-G645, Sony XS-GTR1720S, Pioneer TS-D691S, Rogers RA-6400 4CH, Addzest APA2100 2CH

    Well the fact that engine needs to be replaced has been established pretty strongly i saw for my self forgot to take pics.

    @xsxd: Well the rates are non negotiated i believe they'll drop down somewhat with proper negotiation. But 68.5k is really good bargain i hope to get that.

    I am more inclined towards the 2006 engine as its new, my question is how much alteration would be required for Civic 97 and if not to go for the 2006 engine then why not?
