    First, before doing anything else, find the source of the leak...it may be something small but if it's a big expensive repair, you may not want to bother with it. Then, get the engine running and go from there. Get yourself a chilton or haynes manual. As you are tackling multiple repairs that will be a big help. (manuals are inexpensive)

Most Hondas with mileage like yours are worth fixing if the body and interior are still in good shape. Look up your book value on Kelly Blue Book.com Then a get some prices on the head work or even a used engine.

Most vehicle Mfg.'s do not want you to access the radiator, so they put in overflow tanks.
You can add coolant there. You will find it under the hood next to the interior fender.
Only check or add coolant when the engine is cool.
I would start looking for a coolant leak. Vehicles are not supposed to leak or lose their coolant.
Check for green coolant spots on the ground where you park your vehicle.
Please let me know what you find.

Once vehicle is up to operating temp., antifreeze can be smeeled inside and outside the car. The water level got low. No fluid inside on the floor, but smells horrible if temp is raised above 68 degrees....


Check all heater and rad hoses and connections. If you don't see anything steaming when the car is hot, it could be just you heater core leaking. Probably not a serious leak, just a slow one, or even just steam. Also check frost plugs and gaskets. If you see any wet on your engine, that will be your problem. Pay close attention to intake gaskets. GM has had a lot of problems with them in those years. Park over a clean piece of plywood or cardboard at night, and see if there is any antifreeze on it in the morning. If you absolutely can't find anything, maybe try some stop leak of some kind in it. I have the best luck with the stuff that is just powdered aluminum filings. There are lots of different brands. Your local parts store will have it.

I had leaking lower intake seal, pulled it into garage won't star


If the chain gear failed the distributor rotor will usually stutter as the engine is cranked, or, you will show extremely low compression on a comp test. Both are easy to do and I'd do that before continuing with other diagnosis. (also, a bad chain gear will often show up as engine cranking unusually fast)

How to replace coolant tank on Saturn SL2


The antifreeze tank is held on by I believe two bolts on the side. It's pretty easy to remove,

Just unbolt, remove hose and do the reverse with your new one.

As far as a replacement, I'd junkyard or ebay one. Lot cheaper, quicker, and easier than trying to get an aftermarket one and modifying to fit.

Car is leaking antifreeze from underneath of car


I would check and replace the thermostat if it is bad, recheck the connections of the heater hoses to the heater core, and if none of these are bad, the heater core is most likely gone bad. Also, depending on where the overflow canister is, and if the radiator cap has gone bad, it might be letting too much antifreeze out of the system and overfilling the overflow canister.
