Oil Sump Problems

Hi i was wondering if it is possible fo fit the 2.0l Sump to the 2.3L engine. Or if any one knows where to get a after market Sump as per usual Honda want about 230 for the sump and gasket.

Re: Oil Sump Problems

Pretty sure the 2.3 is going to have a bigger pick up then a 2.0...... I don't know the conversion from euros to the states but 230 euros for a sump seems a bit pricey. What makes you think you need a new sump? Are you talking about changing out the oil pump or just the sump? I ask because sumps usually don't go bad they can just be cleaned and there ya go like new again........

No its worse than you think thats 230 British Pounds which is about $455. The sump has a small rust hole in it. it is slowly dripping out so need to either fix it or get a new sump. Was thinking of just puting a pop rivet into the hold and using cemical metal to fix over it.

Re: Oil Sump Problems

Its part of the problem of the climate that i live in. I am in Aberdeen Scotland and its probably a combination of scuffing the sump on something and then the salty water from the roads getting into the scratch and then off it goes. I have had a few problems. Had to get a new ABS sensor that was 185 about $366. then 2 weeks later another ABS sensor went. This time i bought 2 old ABS sensors off EBay that were from a Civic. With great help from my Dad we removed it from the Civic mount and attached it to the Prelude mount. And it is still working fine and that was only 10 for the 2 sensors. Honda spares are very very expensive in the UK. Just like the Gas prices. I wish i could get Gas for the Price you do over there. you are over half the price that we are.

Re: Oil Sump Problems

185 for abs wow! Lol I payed more like $23 total for one of mine....

U kind of answered ur own question.... Your best bet is to try and fix the hole how it sits... Braze weld or whatever, not really sure what those dudes are made of but as long as its not aluminum or cast iron should be a pretty easy spot to fill in...
If you don't have access to the equipment to do that go ahead and start looking for a used one...
Go go gadget ebay... After all you can see the difference in pricing from ebay to your domestic market....
I wonder if your cost of living is just that much greater where your at. But I know if I had to pay over 350$ for an abs sensor I would consider a different car lol.......
