If you put a used engine in the car the dealer or insurance company most
likely bought it from a junkyard/recycler. Usually the bill for that motor
will have the VIN the motor came out of. That is, if it's a reputable
Ask the dealer if he has the VIN number. If you get that then do a VIN
background check such as Carfax or AutoCheck.
If you need a referral or place to get a remanufactured motor try Howard

I'm sure your dealer is aware of them. They are one of the most reputable
engine/transmission rebuilders you'll find. They were THE source, a few
years back, when Honda did not have reman transmissions of their own. They
offer 3 year 36000 mile warranty and longer. They specialize in Honda/Acura
and from what I've heard use only OEM parts in their rebuild. Good luck.
