the girl who had it before me left the engine in a total mess. no coolant all water in the radiator. low oil, brakes were shot. engine was completely out of tune. looks like it had a new head gasket. doesnt this happen with really high cylinder temps or a lack of coolant around the cylinders.

i wouldnt use that motor...

my x girl bought a civic and it was fine on test drive the next day it was overheating and i noticed it was shooting white smoke.. so i pulled the head to do a head gasket and i noticed that it was like that too where its chipped on the cylinder walls..

i shaved the head and put a headgasket and it still blew white steam.. not as bad.. but still did it.. i had to put water in it everywhere i went..

just get a new block.. i guess the moral of my story is lol :)

If you know someone that can weld aluminum you could have that welded then just have it re-decked but its prolly cheaper to just get a new block.
