    Everyone tells me this is probably what I did to my engine. I was running low on oil now I have a knock around 2500k. it still got me home.

    I have a d15b7 block at the house that is my backup.

    Its is possible for a backyard mechanic to fix this problem? I've checked out the hazone.com's tear down of the bottom end of the motor and it didnt look to bad. I have air tools to help my out.

    Here are my ghey questions

    1. Is the bearings that screwed up on the crankshaft?
    2. How difficult is it to get to and replace?
    3. Would my d15b7 bearings fit on this motors?

    i wouldnt bother trying to repair the 1.5 but instead changing it with a b16 or something to that matter.

    but if you really wanted to do it. you are going to have to get the crank inspected perhaps rebalanced
    most likely replace what ever the bearings took out in the bottom end. there are a lot of bearings to replace under there and you have to replace them all.
