Honda dealership approved that and now we just have to gather all the photo documentation, receipts, reports, and email it to honda dealership so they can replace my failed engine
this is a very good outcome. congratulations.

however, this is a very mysterious occurrence, considering you suffered the same issue with your previous engine.

let's see how your new new engine does. =)

yes :/....its strange how fast honda gave us new engine....engine was ordered before it was confirmed to me and my mechanic that waranty was approved. They never NEVER look at the engine...the relied to pictures taken by me only. So clearly the knew what the problem was from the very beginning when we told them bearings just fell apart :/....

Im just happy its over...sad thing is the dont want to cover labor and new gaskets so i had to buy new ones myself and pay for the labor again

Dear Klemen,
I'm new of your forum and thanks to your administrator.
(Sorry for may not perfetct English - I'm writing form Italy)

Some months ago I've bought a new honda assembled block .. and reading what was happened to yours , for me is about the same story .
I've bught an new 2009 engine block to sobstitute mine that had 205.000 km.
We are trying with my mechanic to solve the problems with this new engine , but without result..
So I kindly ask you to send me information about the cause that you have finally found on your engine .
I've understood that some water arrive slowly into the Engine .. and with this motivation you have obtained a new engine from Honda.
Have you understood from where the water arrive ? some little crack on the block or others ? In how many time the water has caused tyhe damage ?

Many thanks in advance for your help
Marcello

To the OP, what procedure was used to prime the new engine? An intial prime on a new S2000 engine can take a long time as far as revolution count, to build the proper pressure.

I believe that priming the engine with oil is making sure sufficient oil is in all passageways, oil pump, valve train, prior to actually starting the engine. I do it by cranking the engine with ignition disconnected, until the oil light on the dash, goes off. Some folks use an adapter on an electric drill to drive the oil pump, manually to get the oil flowing through a static motor. I think this is what Billman meant.

Yes talking about priming before initial starting. Curious to know if it was even done at all.
