Welp.

The garage called and said there is metal in the oil.

So, there’s that can o worms.

Since I am stuck in Germany for 6 more months with no access to a lift (covid) and shop prices are crazy for labor, I really don’t know what direction to take this.

We owe $10K on the Pilot.

Used engines go from $1,700 - 2,500.

Rebuilt are more.

If a Honda rebuild came with a warranty, that would be nice. But any work done here will be void when I move in 6 months.

So many directions this can go wrong. Not many that can go right.

Tell me how crazy this sounds:

- Have the garage it is at change the oil pump and stuff under the timing belt covers

- Ask them to do their best to flush the oil passages clean. Maybe the filter kept damage to a minimum?

- Drive it under its own power to the port for shipping and get it to America

- Swap the engine with a warranty rebuild back home

- Buy equipment for 3D printing and metal casting

- Use trashed engine castings to make custom moped parts

I cannot sell the thing here. It has no trade in value. It has to run to ship with military PCS. I am too stubborn to junk it and eat a $10K loss.

I will never underestimate an idiot light again.
