Question about 2001 Honda CR-V
I have a 2001 Honda CRV and I noticed that my radiator fluid is leaking. There is green liquid all over my hoses, but there is no steam coming out. Also, my car is not over heating. My radiator cap doesn't appear to have a crack in it or anything. I can't seem to find anything that looks broken or loose. Any suggestions?
I had the same problem and traced it to the joint between the plastic bottom and the metal body. This is a common fault, you would new a pressure test to confirm.

There are dozens of possible sources for your leak, ranging from a split hose, to a bad water pump, a bad thermostat bypass hose, split in the radiator core, defective radiator cap, etc... If there aren't any visible problems, about the only way to find the leak is a radiator pressure tester. Buy, rent, or borrow one, and pump up your cooling system to around 30 psi. Don't go any higher or you could do some damage. The problem should show pretty quickly. Don't forget to check the radiator cap. I have had 2 in a row go bad on my PT Cruiser, one OEM, and one aftermarket. If you smell anti-freeze while driving, your heater core is leaking. Be very careful with any spilled anti-freeze since children and pets will lap it up because it tastes sweet, and polyalkylglycol is highly toxic.
