2002 Honda Civic loosing coolant every 2 days... i dnt see a puddle..


well simple answer is it is only losing coolant when under presure so i would tighten all coolant hoses to be sure they are air tight then start the engine leave untill the fan comes on then check for a leak as will be under presure if you find the leak dont work on the cooling system untill compleatly cooled down then remove coolant cap then fix the leak fillwith coolant to just under max level replace coolant cap and start engine leave running untill fan kicks in and then see if leak has sealed dont forget check around cylinder head when checking for leaks

Red light on maintenance required is on, what would that mean. Oil has been changed recently, approximately 45,000 miles on the car


the maintenance schedule is in the owners manual on the last 2 pages I believe, But here are some of the things to check the maintenance schedule on that car calls for oil changes every 3,750 miles if you primarily use the car around town or 7,500 if you do mostly highway driving without stop and go traffic. Most cars should go by the 3,750 schedule.

tire rotations should be every 7,500 miles. Brakes should be checked when the tires are rotated.

the major service on the 4 cylinder is every 30,000 miles. that includes the tune-up items of replacing spark plugs, adjusting the valves, replacing the air filter, transmission fluid, interior cabin filter and the inspections and adjustments.

the 6 cylinder does not need the valve adjustment or spark plug replacement until 105,000 miles. otherwise, the fluids and filter replacements are every 30k.

the timing belt on both the 4 cyl and the 6 cyl is 105,000. at that time the water pump and coolant are also replaced as well as the other accessory drive belts.

Brake fluid should be replaced every 3 years or 45,000 miles.

1997 HONDA ACCORD WOULD START


May be, Your coolant machine is working too hard.. Because when hot/summer day , if my machine in long journey , and you resting your car , the fan sound is still on although you turn off your machine.. It's means, the coolant machine , or your engine component must be changed... I hope so.
