Re: Civic DX Coupe Alternator?

Stock 6th gen belts are not serpentine... they are individual V's. I prefer used OEM alternators over aftermarkets. New OEM (if still available) is probably between $200-$350.

Re: Looking for a recommendation on engine mounts

Smoothest ride will be Honda genuine (OEM) mounts. They can be expensive though but should last much longer than aftermarket brands.

Re: Overheating,lost of coolant,heater not blowing heat.

Compressed air injected into the cylinders at TDC with radiator cap off and looking for bubbles is the only valid method to rule out a head gasket breaches.

Re: Overheating,lost of coolant,heater not blowing heat.

Maybe there were air pockets in the coolant that needed to work their way out of the system and finally did so. When you replaced the coolant did you bleed the air per the service manual?

Try car-parts com used parts. Get same ECU as your car's model and /or VIN number.

May be just a Vtec head and head gasket, mod to get oil to the Vtec head and an ECU from an H23 Vtec vehicle? However, I can't say that's all with certainty.

Could try adjusting the valves to spec but probably won't solve the issue. Fuel injectors working correctly? Leaking intake gasket? Other than that it may be a faulty ECU issue?

Re: head gasket or cracked head ?

Head gasket sealers can potentially clog radiator and heater core. If the engine overheated then the head is most likely warped out of spec and no amount of stop leak is going to solve that issue.
