    I just got a replacement D16Z6 for my 1993 del sol si. When I got it home and looked at it, there was what looks like a plug on the outside of the cylinder wall. It's about the size of a nickel and it has silicone upunder it. Can anyone tell me what this is and if I just got screwed? I would also like to know if this would make it worthless for me to put this motor in my car. Any input on this matter would be helpful.

    pics would be helpful, and i don't want to jump to conclusions but it sounds to me like you might have gotten screwed. is it perfectly round or is it misshaped. i can't really think of any reason somebody would plug something on the cylinder wall unless they broke something. does the plug look clean and nicely done or does it look ghetto

    here is the pic

    [​IMG]

    This is a pic of the tab I was told by the seller that it was a heat tab that he puts on all the motors to see if the motor was run hot. He said that if the motor is run hot then the center of the tab will melt out, and it will void the warranty. Thats what he said but i just wanted to see what ya'll had to say about it before I put the motor in.

    yeah but i bet it dosent go throught the water jacket and into the cylinder wall. dont worry about it. It was either a spot for a sensor, or a crack fix. It looks like its done OK..... try it out.

    I started the motor last night and it ran perfectly. The only problem I had was a cracked radiator and my new one comes in tomorrow. Thanks for the input.
