Hey, so I have a 1997 Honda Civic DX Hatchback Turbo.

Going to be changing Piston Rings..I recently just got the car..don't really know much about honda's ....

Do I have to drop crank from bottom in order to change piston rings?

Or..can I toy with it..I mean..I am about ready to just start pulling the engine apart..but was going to ask that before I do it...because if that is the case, I am just going to pull the whole engine.

What is best way to change piston rings? Let me know..I am new to this .. import scene..

no, you do not have to drop the crank to pull the pistons. drop the pan, pull the head, push the pistons up through the bore, cover the journals with something, hone the cylinders, slap it all back together.

:lol: its a weekend job for most with experiance doing bottom end work. well maybe just for me, cause i like to have a LOT of light when i go to re-assemble. since i want to be sure i got everything cleaned up.
