Question about 1993 Honda Accord
Ok...I recently bought a 93 Accord with over 250,000 miles. Obviously used. Driver"s side window needs a new motor, passenger side front door needs a new door handle (we open the door from the outside) and the driver's rear door doesn't open from the inside either. But those problems I can deal with. The one that is driving me crazy is the engine. I have cracked a seal on the head gasket twice in the last 3 months. Which caused water to get into the oil. 7 qts of chocolate milk came out of the car when we drained the oil (its only supposed to hold 4 qt). It was gross. But my concern is that we keep adding water (that's all we are using at present - not antifreeze at this point with a freshly sealed gasket) and it keeps "disappearing" somewhere. At the time we weren't finding any leaks. Now I have a leak - like a running faucet - as soon as we add water to the radiator it is spewing out onto the ground. What needs replaced to make it stop guzzling water every five minutes. Literally - because that is how long it takes me to get to work before I need to add more water to the radiator. I have replaced the top radiator hose and there is another little hose I have replaced. (I live in AZ in that makes a difference.) Thanks for the help!
Hey try checking you radiator plugs (2) at the bottom right corner make sure its not stripped. Also if the radiator in plastic on the top and very bottom but iron or aluminum in the middle you will have to check really careful where the plastic and aluminum join together could hair a hairline crack but once you start the car and it get hot and pressurize then its runs out fast. Hope this helps I have a 93 accord also..for 12 years now and still doing well..Ed
