SOURCE: some times water comes out

Next time you see some water under the car, look to see exactly where it dripped. If the water dripped out right near the firewall, it may be just the drain from the ac evaporator core.

So were you running the ac when you saw the water?

So next time you see the water, put your finger in it and smell of the water. Is it clean water, or is it water with antifreeze? You will be able to tell if its antifreeze or if its just evaporator core drainage.

My 2004 3400 closed system ,runs hot in town unless heater is on. driving up a mountain pass it gets very hot.on a flat highway runs normal. new t state,resivior cap, both fans work no leaks or smell

Radiator fan motor or radiator fan thermostat defective/

Also there is a relay that operates the fan motor

In town not enough air passing through radiator allowing it to over temp.. With heater fan running acts like cooling fan keeping engine cool

Highway driving ample air passing through radiator without fan.

Hill climbing requires cooling fan/

Hope this helps?

Why is my honda passport running hot?

The most common cause other than what you have replaced is a leaking head gasket.
Could also be a coolant flow problem inside the engine, or air flow thru the radiator.
