    ok so i finally finish the swap .. 96 LS into 96 Civic HB
    and here goes my problems

    1. freakin bad motor seeing as its leaking oil by the valve cover and head gasket

    2. burning oil .. dunno where .. smoke coming from back of motor . oil spat all over the shift linkage and underneath the IM

    3. also my temp gauge dont seem right .. its too low when i was driving it earlier .. and my fan dont seem to come on at all .. i know its hotter than that . the temp gauge sits like between normal and cold

    well any help/suggestion would be great .. thx in adv
    im thinking oil pan so im gonna go get a new oil pan gasket and valve cover gasket ..

    return it.
    same thing happend to me and I just got done rebuilding the head, and doing a hg job because it had the valve seals and guides all freaked up.
    I should have returned it. Don't hesitate and go for it

    Ouch......let us know if you get a new set up. Sucks.

    I agree...Thermo is shot (they stay open when they go out) but thats cheap

    Oil all over the place??? Do what "B" said.....one, two, three
