Default Honda engine seized. What now?

I didn't put oil in if for a day or two because I was going to change it soon anyways and it seized. I know. I'm and idiot. No need to point it out. It's a 2000 civic ex. Manual tranny. I can see that it blew two holes in the bottom front of the engine. Is there any way to just repair that part of it? If not, any suggestions? Good place to buy a new engine?

look for a local engine shop, buy a rebuilt block. your engine is junk.

You can also go to a junk yard possibly.

In addition to the low oil pressure that caused you to eject two connecting rods, a lack of oil causes the piston skirts and cylinder walls to overheat, often resulting in damage to all pistons and cylinders.

Best case scenario: you only ejected two connecting rods through a structural oil pan.

Worst case scenario: they were ejected through the engine block, a loose part secreted the crank, other posts jammed and destroyed cylinder skirts or ejected into the water jacket, poisons were left at TDC, destroying valves, pulleys snapped off, small children cried, etc.

If the holes are in the oil pan, start by pulling it andinspecting. If they are in the block, not repairable, start looking for a lower mileage motor.

Here is a low miles, used one, for $1000.

Installation labor will also be around $500.

The two holes out the bottom are not the problem.

The problem is those 2 holes came from part of the connecting rod that broke open after scoring the hell out of the crankshaft journals.

The holes can be patched, but the crank at best needs to be reground, and with Honda it is more likely toast.

Its time for you to commit to an engine change. If you call 1-888-528-1212 you will reach a company called ATTARCO. This company deals in used engines from Japan that have low mileage and a 6 month unlimited mileage warranty. I have installed over 200 of them and have not had a bad one yet. They pre test them before you get it. Their prices are the best that I have found and have been in business for over 20 years. Now all you need is a mechanic to install it. If you live in calif. I might be able to help, that is up to you.
