Yes you can add water,however you have to remember that the boiling point of water is 212 degrees where as coolant mixture of 50/50 has a boiling point of 240 you have to get the vehicle to the shop and quickly. if you go too long the engine heads will either warp or crack and so will the block as well so find a shop and fast... please rate this

I had the same problem. The leak was coming from the transmission coolant line coming out of the radiator

How do I clean a stopped up water jacket in my 96 Honda accord?


If it isn't leaking externally, then it has to be internal, most likely a blown headgasket.

Im looking to put water in my car because it is running hot


add to overflow reservoir, white plastic looking container with hose(s) coming off bottom. Add 50/50 antifreeze instead of water. Have thermostat checked and radiator fans checked to be sure working.

I have a 1996 Honda civic, it spits out water at the radiator after running for 10 minutes. What can I do?


If the radiator is leaking, put a bottle of radiator stop leak in it,fill it up the rest of the way with water, tighten cap, and run in idle for 15 to 30 minutes. If the leak is severe or one bottle doesn't work, use two bottles of stop leak and run for 35 minutes.

If it's the radiator cap that's leaking, replace the cap with a new one. Also check to make sure there are no loose cooling hoses.

Safety first: Use extreme caution to never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot, severe burns from escaping hot water could result.

The car is sputtering and backfiring. After awhile


buy a couple bottles of gasline antifreeze (it absorbs water). add one bottle to your gas tank now and another bottle next time you fill up. you should notice results almost immediately.

Water from exhaust


some water is normal but if you are loosing coolant, running hot or if water from exhaust smells like antifreeze you have a problem (head gasket or cracked head)

Car is overheating


Is your cooling fan kicking on when temp rises?Are you running antifreeze or just water?Possible calcium buildup in radiator or water pump not working at full potential.. I could be more helpful if more detail info was given....
