Question about 1995 Honda Accord
Coming off the engine block on the passengers side underneath the distributor is a hose that looks to be 2-1/2 to 3 inches in diameter. A small hole in it now allows antifreeze to spew everywhere. I'm unable to see or feel where the other end of the hose leads to but it turns 90 degrees 3 to 4 inches off the engine block and goes toward the firewall but not to it.
I've replaced several radiator and heater hoses over the years but I've never worked on a frontwheel drive engine with so little room to work in. Will the distributor have to be removed to get to this hose? And if so, will specialized equipment be needed to put it all back together?
Thanks for your help,

If the hose is 2 to 3 inches in diameter then it's one of two primary hoses from the radiator. There should be two that come off the radiator and go onto the engine block. The top one has the thermostat mounted on the engine and leads into the hose. I'm guessing you can't see where the hose goes because it is the return hose from the bottom of the radiator. See if you can get underneath the car to see where it's going. Most likely it's just a simple clamp and you can replace the hose yourself. No special toos are required, just time and a lot of fluid dripping when you take the hose off :-)
