Question about 1998 Honda Prelude

Water leaking from rear of engine

Water with green coolant dripping from rear of 89 Prelude motor, what to look for, welsh plugs or heater. Had pressure tested via radiator pump but would not leak. Usually leaks after longer trip. What should I be looking for. Just clocked over 300000klms and still like new.
Thanks Neil

Look under the intake there are small hoses that go from the intake to the block they get hard and brittal over the years just wiggle the hoses while it is running that way the coolant will be flow through them should find the leak

My 2001 Terracan highlander has coolant leaking under the engine.Can someone tell me where the leak is coming from and how to fix it? The car has a v6 3.5l engine.


Could be welsh plugs on side of engine are corroded.
Could be a smaller pipe like a heater hose pipe or an auxilary cooling pipe .Had one of these little extra pipes on a mitsubishi sigma under the inlet manifold that was leaking.
Did you use a coolant in the engine as water can corrode welsh plugs in engines as I found out on my car !.

No as soon as i fill the reservoir it empties in twenty minutes


There is a good chance that there may be a rusted out freeze plug leaking in behind the manifold where you can't see so well. That would explain the dripping and quick loss of coolant.

Have a coolant pressure test done to see if the leak is external--radiator-- welsh plugs --hoses water pump--- heater . Have compression test done to determine if there is a head gasket or cracked head problem. Check the colour of the engine oil and if it is grey or milky there may be a leak behind the water pump impellor allowing water into the sump

Could be a freeze plug on the engine block. If you have a block heater installed in one of the freeze plug holes, check it for getting too loose and leaking. Pretty common problem with a block heater that's been in there a long time.

Your problem is something like either a hose clip loose /biting into a hose and split it/a metal hose rusted and has a pin hole or a welsh plug (core plug) leaking. or a water plate gasket IE W/Pump/Manifold etc
Because it drips of the centre of engine dosenot mean it coming from the bottom of engine...

Engine cooling system


it sounds like a welsh plug that is leaking if you don't know much about motors then you should take it to someone who dose. It is reasonably easy job though
