Leaking coolant after radiator replacement


If you are talking about the reservoir that hose is the overflow hose.
Its possible the shop did not release all of the air pockets from the system and some coolant came out with the air bubbles.
The tank should be about half full hot and cold.

Hondas are very tough cars and will run hot right up until a radiator hose ruptures. You need to make sure that there is not a problem.
When your Honda says it is hot, make sure the radiator fan is running. If not, it can be a bad fan or fan relay.
Next, turn on the heat full blast and make sure that you have allot of heat coming into the car. If not, even though your overflow tank has fluid in it, your radiator may be dry. This can happen if your radiator cap is bad. Check the fluid level in the radiator itself, but don't pull the cap until your car has cooled down at least an hour to reduce the risk of getting burned by steam.
If it stops reading HOT when you have full heat on it could be either the thermostat or a plugged radiator. Change the thermostat first since it is the cheapest fix.

Steam from under hood at idle.


My '97 CR-V would get hot enough at idle to evaporate rainwater on the hood, but I've never had steam come out from under the hood that wasn't one of these few solutions:

1. Coolant system leak in which the coolant is somehow being leaked or displaced onto a very hot engine component such as the exhaust manifold.

2. EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system failure in which fumes (and thus 'steam' or 'steam-like' discharge) are being introduced under the hood.

3. Exhaust leak near the engine.

4. Some (all?) vehicles cycle the A/C compressor whilst the selctor is in the DEFROST position. Is it possible that some condesate from the evaporator is spilling onto hot underhood engine parts?

5. Failure of supply hose to windwhield washer jets, usually caused by alcohol drying out the hose. Then, the washer fluid leaks on the hot engine, causing steam.

Check closely under there, I bet you find the problem.

look for leaks on the passenger side!!!! also this car has a "air pocket" you need to find the bleed off screw on the upper hose fitting on the engine and bleed it when filling up with coolant
