Hi there You need to purchase yourself a water pressure tester kit, available from most Car Parts Factors. This will enable you to apply pressure to the cooling system, preferably when cold (you don't want to get yourself burnt with hot water) and with an inspection light and small mirror to help you, determine more accurately where your leak is coming from exactly. Best regards, Scottech

2003 Honda Civic LX 90k miles replaced parts: thermostat, radiator cap, radiator. major timing belt job including water pump. Car is overheating: When i am idle coming off the highway the gauge...


it is possible that when the water pressure rises in your radiator, and the radiator shoots the water into the reserve tank, that hose is not properly put on(happens alot when changing radiator) and the coolant leaks rapidly through there. another thing i suggest is observe your fan behavior. fans usually are only supposed to turn on for a couple of seconds, around 10 or 15. park your car, and let the car reach normal operating temperature. when the car starts to over heat, check to see if your fans turn off at all. if they do, then it is most likely the tw swith,or the water temperature switch. if you notice the fans stay running, then i suggest obesrving your hoses and replaing any that spill coolant because even a pressure test on your cooling system can miss a small pucture in a hose, which after a while will cause your coolant to leak, and your car to overheat. hope this helps. if still nothing, drop a comment and ill help you out somemore, but for now, this is the practical thing to do. hope this helps, goodluck.

the green colour will be antifreeze additive in the water, you should really trace the leak source as it is bound to continue or worsen without repair. You could try a product called CE-LIT which comes in little packets, looks like chopped up grass or silica - add to hot radiator and run at idle for several minutes, it is really good if you can find it where you live. I put a screwdriver thru the rad when fixing my number plate in the snow, huge leak ensued, ce-lit closed it within 5 minutes and I was able to drive off. Never leaked again either, if you cant find that one, get a similar one, but not the liquid leak sealers like barr's as they are ****.

really this could be one of several issues, does the vehicle run Hot, are you having to fill the reservoir with water or coolant, there is a hose that runs from the cap (overflow hose) to the reservoir, in addition to the upper and lower hoses, finally the water pump. the water pump is equipped with weep holes, which allow fluid to weep out when the pump is bad. finally the thermostat, hopefully one of these can solve your issue, good luck!

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Top radiator hose is HOT, radiator is steaming


have u replaced the radiator and hoses? Thermostat could also be stuck open. Water pump could also be your issue. with motor cool and of remove radiator cap(cap may be bad as well) top-off fluid and start car check for fluid flow with flashlight. Water pumps typically leak from what is called a weep hole when the shaft seal fails. Yours will be located under the timing cover (drivers side) running of the timing belt.
Hit me up after u have check on these.

1987 HONDA ACCORD LX WATER LEAK


Yes, there is a "bypass outlet" coolant hose that connects from the water pump inlet pipe (metal pipe that runs from back of water pump along engine block to lower radiator hose) to the intake manifold.

I am not sure about the "black box" - not enough detail.

Thats my guess, one hose leak, two head gasket, three, crack in head somewhere. Of course make sure the thermastat is working. If it is seized thats a problem to. If you get the head off make sure it is resurfaced before you install the head gasket. Good luck

Antifreeze leak


Ok, Its defiantly the seal that is between the water pump and the engine block that is leaking the coolant.
