Your water pump is leaking from the weep hole. Time to have this part replaced. While you are in there do the timing belt. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

First, you need to fill the coolant reservoir. Second, you need to locate the leak. Usually, it is either a bad hose, or it could be the radiator itself, since they are now made out of plastic with an aluminum core.


If you are not mechanically inclined, take it to a good repair shop.

SOURCE: ENGINE COOLANT SYSTEM NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY

1. Check the level you filled the coolant to...If you overfilled it this will happen. 2.  Did you add the correctly diluted antifreeze? 3. Check to be sure the radiator is unobstructed

SOURCE: 1991 honda accord the radiator coolant fan won't

If the cooling fan shuts off after a few minutes with the ignition off, this is normal for most cars; it prevents hard starting in hot weather. If it fails to shut off after a reasonable period, say 10 minutes or longer, the relay for the fan may be faulty.

If doesn't come on during running and the gauge is in the normal range, this is also normal.
If it doesn't come on when the engine temp is above normal, the sensor for operation has failed. This is normally located on the bottom tank of the radiator and will have either one or two wires coming from it and most have a hex base for removal and installation. These are fairly common failures.

2000 honda accord coolant leak drivers side back of engine


Sounds as if it's coming from the weep hole on the water pump. Water pumps will leak out of the intended weep hole when it's time for replacement and based on the mileage it's definitely time. The coolant will only leak when the engine is not running and will not leak much. Unless you have documentation proving the timing belt was changed at the scheduled interval I highly recommend you have that service performed as well along with a new idler pulley and belt tensioner. You are time and money ahead of yourself to have all of these parts replaced at the same time since the same amount of labor is involved. I recommend finding a reputable independent repair shop that specializes in Hondas and use only OEM parts. Be sure to specify OEM-only and clarify not OEM-comparible parts. Good luck.

Temperature gage high cooling fans works sometimes coolant level normal


There are 2 cooling fans one that runs Ono and off Witt he temp of the engine and 1 that runs when you turn on the ac. The fans wiring harness can hook up opposite ways. Meaning that the fans can run backwards if it is hooked up wrong. When the fans are running they need to be pulling air inward towards the engine not blowing out through the front of the car. This is the first thing I would check if it isn't running hot but the temp is above normal!!!

The coolant light flashes on but the temp gauge does'nt go past the middle when the car is running


YOUR TEMP GAGE WILL NOT REGISTER CORRECTLY WHEN THE COOLANT FALLS BELOW A CERTAIN LEVEL. WHEN IT IS SMOKING IT IS EXTREMELY HOT. IF YOU HAVE A COOLANT LEAK THAT BAD IT SHOULD BE NOTICEABLE EVEN WHEN IT IS NOT HOT. YOU NEED TO FIND THE SOURCE OF THE COOLANT LEAK. WATER PUMP, COOLANT HOSE, FREEZE PLUG, HEAD GASKET, RADIATOR CAP LEAK, OR RADIATOR, OR HEATER CORE. CHECK THE ABOVE AND YOU WILL FIND THE SOURCE OF THE LEAK.

My honda accord wagon smells hot i stop running car, ther,s no leaks do i need a termostat?


You may have a bad thermostat or a weak water pump or a clogged radiator. Smell does not indicate if its hot. The gauge or coolant light might suggest its getting hot. You may have a fuel control issue that is overheating the catalytic converter which would smell or an oil leak that is dripping onto a hot surface causing a smell. You may have a real small coolant leak that you cant see that could cause this also.
