You can visually inspect water hose. if there are no rips holes tears. or dry rot you should be ok it is advisable to check your hoses every so often for these characteristics. no need to replace a perfectly good hose. if it aint broke dony fix it.

Water return hose leaking on


Your post got cut off. Leaking on ...what? If the hose is loose, may need to just tighten the hose clamp. If the hose is ruptured, replace the hose.
There are only 2 water return hoses: from heater core to engine, and from radiator to engine- this big hose connects to the water pump on the front of the engine- If it's leaking there, you must determine if it is the hose or the water pump[. If it's the pump it will have to be replaced. Here's hoping it's just the hose. Good luck. Post back for more.

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.
