Took the car to my local mechanic with the check engine light flashing and the car running rough. At first he thought it only needed new spark plugs, wires, etc. I left it with over the weekend and called him back yesterday. I guess the new ignition parts did not fix it so he ran a compression check. I think it was the 3rd cylinder that had no compression. He thinks it's the valves. He said he could pull the head and have it rebuilt but the car has 275,000 miles on it and he thinks a new head on an engine with that many miles would not be a reliable fix. He is going to try and locate a used engine and I'm doing the same but nothing yet. This car is in great shape inside and out (other than the engine). The other option would be to sell as is but I have no idea what it's worth. If I keep it my wife said I could do what ever I wanted to restore it to "like new". That's a pretty tempting offer. The paint is not terrible ( I keep it in the garage) but it has oxidized like most Hondas do. I guess I have two questions for the forum 1) What would it be worth as is and 2) what is the best course of action for replacing the engine. My mechanic said he used to rebuild them but its was too labor intensive. I think I have the B18C1. Thanks.
