After multiple phone calls with the dealership - The Service Manager called yesterday and told me that the engine CAN be repaired!

They are going to:
  • Dissemble the engine
  • Replace the values
  • Send the cylinder heads to a machine shop to be re-worked
  • Replace the timing belt, water pump, belt tensioner
They told me this should run about $4k and Honda will pick up 1/2.
12k / 12 month warranty on the work and parts
They did tell me that they MIGHT find something else once they get into further into the engine - but they would go to Honda 1st with anything further.

This looks like the best solution for us. No used engine that we don't know anything about.
So far - they have been pretty amazing. We just bought a Ford Explorer (3rd car from the Ford dealership) and I KNOW they wouldn't have stepped up like this.

Thanks so much for the advice, ideas and options!
You all helped more than you know!

If you are happy with the outcome then I am happy for you! I don't remember your original post and what the issue was... hopefully no surprises as they disassemble the engine.

Verify your extended warranty isn’t in play. The piston replacement extended your engine warranty to 100,000 mike and i think it was eight years.
