2002 Honda Civic loosing coolant every 2 days... i dnt see a puddle..


well simple answer is it is only losing coolant when under presure so i would tighten all coolant hoses to be sure they are air tight then start the engine leave untill the fan comes on then check for a leak as will be under presure if you find the leak dont work on the cooling system untill compleatly cooled down then remove coolant cap then fix the leak fillwith coolant to just under max level replace coolant cap and start engine leave running untill fan kicks in and then see if leak has sealed dont forget check around cylinder head when checking for leaks

Seems as if coolant is leaking into motor oil - signs: lifters tick as if washed down by coolant - coolant bottle empties in 2 days - oil level over full - how else besides bad head gasket could coolant...


Its the head gasket.Get it changed and have the head checked for cracks and get the head skimmed has it may have warped.All alloy heads warp when being removed so have it skimmed before replacing.

I hate to tell you this but its possible...

You have a leak. Look around on the driveway and try to determine if you have an external leak as opposed to an internal leak. If you see no coolant on the ground, suspect a blown head gasket. Do not continue to drive this car in this condition. If it does indeed have a blown head gasket, serious engine damage will occur.

Check your exhaust for white smoke. Chances are good you have a blown head gasket and coolant is leaking into the engines combustion chambers and is essentially burning off. Also check your oil, if it looks like caf mocha, this will confirm coolant is leaking into the oil via the blown head gasket
