Question about 2000 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Radiator? While I was driving my car, fluid splashed all over my windshield. I pulled over and turned off the car and it appeared as if it came from the area of my radiator, although I am not sure. Before this incident, I have been told that I could possibly have a minor leak in my radiator and I wanted to know if there is anything I should be looking for the figure out what happened? Is there a possibility that it could have been fluid from my overflow reservoir? Or does it sound like a busted radiator? It didn't begin to get hot while I drove it back home until I turned on my A/C. So Is there any possibility it could have anything to do with my A/C?

Passanger floorboard is wet


Is it water or is it radiator fluid. Radiator fluid will have a sweet smell. If it is water it is probably because the windshield isn't sealed properly and is leaking. If it is radiator fluid then you have a cracked heater core. You can see the result of this by turning on the front defrost and instead of clearing the windsheild it will fog it up. Try pulling the carpet back on the passenger side and put a light dusting of flour on the floor. This should help you locate where the leak is coming from.

My car BMW 318i 2000 model was parked for about 1.5 years without driving. the water pipes are bursting. first it was the plastic pipe on the engine and after replacing, the water tank on the side of the...


Is the water tank the windshield washer fluid or the radiator overflow tank??

If it is the washer fluid tank, fill it with "below 32F" type fluid. If it is the radiator over flow tank, it would appear to me that the radiator fluid is too watered down or weak and is not freeze resistant. The radiator fluid should be 50/50 mix of Prestone or other make of radiator fluid and water. This is to save your engine and radiator from bursting. Ice takes up move volume that water (this is why Ice floats on water). Inside of a pipe, radiator or engine block, this can be devisating. You could crack your radiator or engine block. Hopefully who ever serviced your car last used the correct fluid. You might want to get this checked before more damage happens to your car.

Hope this helps.

The radiator light is on in my car , what does this mean? its a yellow light and has a cap on the right side with lines going through it.


It indicates that your low on radiator fluid or low on windshield washer fluid, you may have both type of indicators and you'll find that information in your manual that came with the Cadillac.

Start with the inspecting your radiator fluid level in your overflow canister and your windshield washer canister. Top off with the proper fluids if it's low.

Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

I need to clean my windshield some times well driving and I don't know where the button is located at to spray the windshield washer fluid.


you have two levers on the steering column, one for the lights and the dipper and the other to run the windshield wipers and also if you pull this up, it will pump up some windshield washing fluid. On a dry windshield first pull it up and release three or four times and then run the wiper blades and not on a dry glass as it will leave scratches.

Would like a diagram of the heater core of a 1999 chevrolet blazer


  • Remove the front dash panel by turning the lower screws in a counter-clockwise direction, then unscrewing the single bolt on the lip of the instrument cluster and pulling the panel out. Remove the rear wiper switch and the 4x4 switches, if applicable. Lowering the tilt wheel will allow the panel to be totally removed.
  • Remove the radio, headlight switch module and glove box by turning their screws in a counter-clockwise direction.
  • Remove the main dashboard by unbolting it at the front, between the windshield and firewall. There are six to eight bolts holding it in, and, once they are removed, the dash can be pulled away from the firewall. Be careful not to pull too much, as the wiring harness could become damaged.
  • Drain the coolant system by turning the drain plug on the lower left corner of the radiator and allowing the fluid to fall into the drain pan. Uncapping the radiator can reduce the internal pressure.
  • Remove the heater core hose, on the upper left of the engine bay by pinching their hose clamps with a pair of pliers and pulling them off. Some models will have screw-type hose clamps; turning them counter-clockwise will loosen them. Age and heat may have stuck the hoses to the core nipples, and the hoses can be cut right at these nipples if necessary. Leave enough hose to reconnect the new core.
  • Unbolt the heater core's mounts with a socket wrench in a counter-clockwise direction. Once the bolts are free, the heater core can be maneuvered toward the windshield and slid out. Some coolant may splash out, so have a towel handy.
  • Replace the heater core with a new one by sliding it into place and securing the mounting bolts.
  • Reconnect the heater core's hoses, turn the radiator's drain plug clockwise to close it, then refill the coolant system with a 50/50 percent mix of coolant and water.
  • Reconnect the dashboard to the firewall, then replace the front dash panel and fasten its instrument cluster screw and bottom bolts.
  • Crank up the Jimmy and add coolant until the heater core is filled and blowing hot air.
  • Replace the radiator cap.
Good luck and make sure you have lots of time and use the camera on your phone and take pictures to use as reference.
