Engine Rebuild :S

Hi guys

This weekend I realized my car was starting to feel like it was running weird. I heared some knocking in the motor so I took it to the mechanic. Turns out theres a leak and I'm going to have to rebuild the engine. How much should I expect to pay..what range? I'm pretty bummed out...I always wanted to rebuild the engine but wasn't expecting it to be so soon..anyway this will be a good thing.

Re: Engine Rebuild :S

Where is the leak, and why is a leak having you to rebuild the motor?

Just curious

As for a rebuild what are you looking to accomplish? Not sure as Honda rebuild kits tend to cost more. I am not sure but I would say $1000? I have no idea.

Re: Engine Rebuild :S

yeah i gotta rebuild mine too, let me know how your endevor goes. im trying to figure out the best way to rebuild it for higher performance right now while sticking to a 3-4 thousand budget range but i doubt you'll have to spend that much. when i asked how much a piston ring job was (thats whats wrong with mine) i got quoted in the 2000 range (more mid level than lower 2k's)
