Here's the deal... A few months ago my 1999 Honda accord overheated while
I was driving. I pulled into a mechanic and asked them to take a look.
Right away they said "you are going to need a new engine". I called my dad
freaking out and he had me take it to our mechanic. Basically there was
oil in my coolant tank and all through the radiator. The engine kept over
heating. So we had the radiator flushed out and kept doing that until it
seemed to be almost gone. Well, it kept coming back and overheating. I
think now they have realized that there is a cracked engine block (they
think) and they have put a new engine in for me. I have now realized that
there are other accord owners having the same issue. Does anyone know if
this is correct? Should I be contacting Honda? Is there a recall
If you have a cracked engine block, then yes, you will need a new engine.
