Honda Civic 6th generation (98), 187,000 miles on 1.6L SOHC Vtec, D16y8, OBD2. Nothing wrong with the car until the fatal mistake of not tightening the radiator cap. Order of events: Driving on freeway, engine light on, white smoke blowing out of pipe in short, overheating, redline hot for 2 miles before eixiting freeway, car dies as it pulls into rest stop. After getting cap and refilling radiator again, the car starts. End of events) Is it more feasible to just buy another engine? My guess is yes, but if so do you know a credible online store? How specific/exact engine can be used to replace this one?
have the same problem?
