Coolent Leak, 2006 Honda Civic

Hi,
New guy on the block. Took my Honda to my local mechanic, whom I trust, telling him that my car was over heating, and I didn't have any ruptured hoses. God News and Bad News!


Bad News; Coolant leak from the engine gasket, meaning I need a new engine.


Good News: Depending on VIN, Honda has a 10 year engine replacement. I took my 2006 Honda Civic and it qualified for the replacement.


Curiously enough, while there I asked about my airbag, and was told it was okay.


Dealer said it would take about two days to replace the engine.


Here is the web site I used to ck:

Hope this helps anyone else out. It's good to have a mechanic you can trust, and am sure this saved me a couple of thousand dollars.

If you think a good mechanic is expensive, try hiring a bad one

I saw one of these, oddest thing ever, right out of the r18, mid block there was a hairline fracture with coolant bleeding out.
