Hi there question I noticed antifreeze leaking from under the car and when I checked the resevoir it was below empty the radiator itself was full.The leak is coming from the passenger side front.It's been extremely cold where I live below 0 and having lots of snow so there have been times as of late I am unable to eyeball underneath the car..This might be a slow leak?? Not sure.Is it okay to just keep filling the antifreeze up in the resevoir till I am able to get my next day off from work???Thanks a bunch! Dawn

It might be a leak in the resevoir itself. There is a hose to allow the radiator to "****" new fluid into the radiator - check it first. It should be long enough to "freshen" the connection by cutting off a little bit and using the american style clamp.

On the bottom of the radiator right in the middle there is a drain bolt which looks like a "winged nut". Loosen that up and your radiator will drain. I recommend using the Honda premium antifreeze when you refill your radiator
that is because it is antifreeze. you have a failed gasket or cracked block and the antifreeze is getting into the combustion chambers and then puffed out the exhaust. this is very bad and needs a fix immediately.
YOU WILL NEED A HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL.IT WILL SHOW AND TELL YOU HOW TO REMOVE RADIATOR.I DONT KNOW YOUR CLIMATE.IF YOU LIVE IN VERY COLD CLIMATE.YOU NEED MORE ANTIFREEZE IN COOLANT SYSTEM THAN WATER.WATER WILL FREEZE CAUSE PROBLEMS.
first off there should be one or two bolts on side or bottom if there is one remove then it will slide straight up. yes you want to clean it out with a house or in bath tube because it can cause plugs and other problems with new parts. let me know how it goes any more que. get back to me.
Well, an old hose can bust for several reasons. Would assume that the temperature change from driving raised pressure enough that a weakened portion finally broke. As for the fans, check fuses and connections, then verify voltage going to the fan. If there is voltage and it is still not working, you have a bad fan.
