Re: no compression

and just being curious, if the mechanic was saying he's seen the car before, possibly turbo'd. then the "low compression" numbers could be low for oem spec motor, but could just be because you have low c/r pistons.. aka a boost setup..

Re: no compression

How low IS the compression? Do you have a compression gauge you can get the readings across all cylinders yourself?

Re: no compression

do you really trust a dealership?

a new motor is going to be cheaper than a rebuild in todays market.

Agreed. Check this before u just go throwin out money for a new motor. If it used to be boosted of course the compression will be low (assuming its built for boost...I.E. Low compression pistons). Get the compression results.

Re: no compression

Sucks, i had a similar issue with my prelude. bought it from a customer, so i decided to take it apart for some upgrades. found cylinder 4 had some nasty scratches (bad motor). i got a hookup on jdm motors at my work. i got a jdm h22 engine (black valve cover) for 950 shipped (850 for motor 100 to ship). we can only get them that cheap because we're a shop. I know im new here but if your interested i can help you out, lmk.
