In the Honda CiViC world - with their open-deck engine design - it's the Kiss of Death for the engine, but NOT the car!

It's a well documented fact that replacing a head gasket in a Honda is a total waste of money, e.g. you're better off buying a replacement engine!

As you implied (ahem) it's also an excellent excuse for a hot engine swap...

Listen to the people who fail. They know what they're talking about!
