    Just found out my 95 Honda Civic has severe engine problems. Can't find a replacement engine in local salvage. Planning on selling the vehicle.

    Have one local interested buyer that I haven't called yet. Have a couple of salvage yards coming to look at it tomorrow. Found this site searching the 'net.

    As mentioned above, the car is a '95 Honda Civic - dark gray (looks black to me, but the car said gray when I bought it new).

    I'm located in the east side of Cincinnati, Ohio.

    I'm not sure what interest there will be, if any, but found this forum and thought I might as well give it a shot. Probably going to decide what to do in the next day or two. Here's a few pieces of info that is accurate to the best of my recollection (car is at local mechanic's shop):
    • 4 door
    • Approx. 130,000 miles
    • 5 speed manual transmission
    • Very little surface rust, no holes that I'm aware of
    • Never been in any sort of wreck
    • Some minor hail indentations on the top of the car
    • Interior is fine for an 11 year old car. No holes in seats, no cracks in dash, "ceiling" intact etc. Just normal wear.
    • Dual air bags
    • Anti-lock brakes
    • AC
    • cruise, tilt, power windows/locks, etc. Driver side rear window motor has burned out awhile ago but otherwise everything functions well.
    • AM/FM stereo w/ cassette - antenna issues, but I think the stereo is fine.
    • Front windshield has 1 nick, about eye-level of driver - been there for years and has not cracked
    • Front hood is misaligned a bit (never been wrecked! - probably maintenance shut the hood with something in the way one time - wish I had noticed it right after the maintenance!)
    • Trunk has allowed some water (bad seal?) - the hardboard cover over the spare has warped but to my knowledge there is no damage to the body - haven't checked it recently)
    • Garage kept - always in the winter and the majority of the time year 'round.
    I apologize if the info above is inappropriate. If there is interest or questions, pleast post a response or email me at EastCincyDad@hotmail.com

    My apologies to all. Likely not selling. Limped home from the mechanics, smoking the entire way. Washed it up (neighbor thought I already bought a new car when he first saw it) and not ready to let it go. Planning to buy another vehicle and then looking for a replacement engine...
