I have previously discussed the problems with my car Honda civic 96 exi on pw forums. The car giving a lot of trouble and the engine block was totally wasted. Had no choice but to overhaul or swap. Finally the mechanic recommended a swap. I am totally illiterate about car problems and remedies. I had to trust the mechanic. Anyways I paid him some advance and he purchased an engine from dry port in I-9 Islamabad. When i asked him about the market near railway track in rawalpindi he told me that those engines are not fit as many of their parts are replaced. Whereas on dry port the container is opened and they purchase engine as in its original condition. I dont exactly know but i think it is d16 or something like that. Along with engine radiator was changed as well. New radiator has plastic top. As per mechanic it was the best. He also told me that thermostat valve will be fully functional and fan will be on auto mode. He also told me that if i want the engine to be trouble free , i should get rid of the "buraee ki jarr" CNG. And I did get rid of it. The car was ready in a couple of days. He didnt give me the receipt for engine. He said that after completing 600 kms I should get back to him and change the oil. And after another 1000 kms if there are no complaints or trouble he'll give me the receipt. Its been ten days since the swap and the oil level and color is same as it was on day 1. Not a single drop of water have decreased from the radiator or the side bottle.
My question: What signs should i be looking for , for a healthy engine?
What are the warning signs?
