Question about 1990 Honda Civic

2 Answers

I need to identify a hose in the radiator system of my 1990 honda civic dx. It is next to the engine and goes back towards the windshield. It's about 18'' long and 1' in diameter. I need to replace it because it's leaking antifreeze.

I believe this is a heater hose. Does it connect at the firewall (the metal panel dividing the engine compartment from the passenger compartment)? There are two heater hoses, one leading to the heater core (which is up under the dash) inside the car, providing hot coolant for heat, and another to return the coolant to the system. This can be purchase by the foot at any auto parts store, and is not expensive, you will need to measure the inner diameter to get the proper size.

The hose you describe is a heater hose. Your local parts store can probable produce a graphic of it if you ask for it.

Replace radiator

They are not to bad you just have to unbolt the top and the fans. It slots in the bottom no bolts but it can be a bit stubborn to get out some times. It is a tight tight fit to get them in and out just make sure you do not mess up the fins or put a hole in it putting it in

try bleeding the air out of the cooling system right after you start the motor up. this will allow you to get all the air out but not steam. do this until the coolent comes out. common cause, it could be vapor locking and not letting the coolent flow causing OVERHEATING. hope this helps
