    Hi I have a 2007 honda accord 2007 2.2cdti ex, I had an issue with the oil pump on the motorway, and sadly the engine is knackered, I'm considering purchasing a used engine from salvage company, but I've heard so many bad reports I'm now really unsure as to what way to go with it, not sure if scraping it and buying a new car would be best option, any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Sorry to hear of your misdemeanour.

    Are there any engines being sold with some warranty ? Like a 30 warranty, this should be long enough period to determine if the engine is good un.

    Hi speedygee I've sourced a few with 30 day warranty, the only thing is once its fitted the garage will charge again for removing and refitting, so I guess I need to decide if I'm going to take the risk or not.
