    I purchased a 2007 Acura TL with front end damage on a Copart salvage auction. Long story short, the flange on the engine block where the water pump mounts broke free of the block. Not a big chunk, but big enough that there is nothing for the water pump bolts to catch and no chance of a water-tight seal. Not sure if this was due to a collision or when the timing belt broke. Unfortunately I have no history of the catastrophe.

    Is this repairable via welding or am I looking at a new block/engine?

    Suggest you find a good welding shop in your area and explain the situation to them and inquire if it can be repaired.

    Kevin,

    I believe I am in the same situation in which you were. I was wondering what you did to resolve the issue, or if you had to replace the whole block.
