Question about 1994 Honda Civic

2 Answers

I just bought a 93 Civic DX, 1.5L SOHC. The car has a serious coolant leak. It looks as if it is coming from the oil breather chamber. I say this because the leak is dripping from a component right next to the oil filter. The space is too tight to eyeball it better, but I felt around and the leak appears to be coming from the base of this chamber. Does coolant even pass through this piece? If not, is there another obvious option that I'm missing?

Under this cover is the timing belt and it runs the water pump also is necessary to remove the belt to change the pump to replace the belt as well may be good idea but firs of all check all the little rubber hoses to make sure is not running from other place to end up in that spot let me know if you need further assistance in repair this problem

2002 Subaru outback is leaking antifreeze and not heating up.


This is common issue early sign head gaskets failure for EJ251 SOHC engine for external coolant leak. Second gen 96-99 with EJ25D is worst because when head gaskets failed, it's an internal leak that allows coolant and oil mix together in the combustion chamber to destroy engine.
You can drive it for at least 6 months or more as long as you keep top up coolant since the leak should be small at a slower rate leak. I drove mine for a while before change head gaskets. You're looking at `$1000-1200 job a dealership since you might as well change the timing belt, water pump, idlers while engine is pulled to replace head gaskets.

White smoke from the exhaust may be an indication that coolant is leaking into the combustion chamber. This could be caused by a faulty cylinder head gasket, a cracked or warped heat or cracked block. Check the coolant level, and check to see if the oil dip stick has a milky look.

Del sol looses water wants to run hot cant see water leak


Look for unusual white smoke from the exhaust or signs of oil nixed in with the coolant. This can be caused by a failed head gasket allowing coolant to leak into the combustion chambers and/or oil galleys.

White smoke is coming out of the exhaust. my cars is constantly overheating and the coolant is constantly running out but with no leaks. Oil in car comes out cloudy even after oil change


This is serious, the white smoke is steam, which means that water is getting into the conbustion chambers, it sounds like a cylinderhead gasket has gone or a cracked cylinder head. I am afraid an expensive garage job.

White smoke mercedes benz 2008 gl-class 320


Seek out another mechanic. White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Most of the time this is caused by a blown head gasket. A loss of coolant with no apparent leak, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, oil level overfull, and air bubbles escaping from the radiator are other symptoms of a blown gasket or cracked head. Stop driving this vehicle until you have this diagnosed and repaired. A compression test will verify this. Serious engine damage will occur if you indeed have an internal leak so make sure one way or the other.

1990 Honda Civic low kms. overheated, added


I want you to take a couple of spark plugs out and examine them. If you find Anti-freeze on them then you may have a blown headgasket. A very common problem of driving a car until it overheats. I really do hope im wrong. Since it is an overhead valve engine with the cam shaft above...its a 1000.00 to 1500.00 dollar job to have it properly repaired. From here out im just going to explain why this happens...
When a car overheats - be it a faulty thermostat...low coolant...or a faulty water pump or improper coolant mixture ratio. The engine gets so hot that it actually makes the top of the engine change shape... it actually changes enough to damage the head gasket. The head gasket keeps the explosion inside the combustion chamber. Keeps the water in its coolant jacket. and keeps the oil inside its ports. When the Headgasket fails. Sometimes coolant gets into the oil (makes a milky residue form on the inside of the oil filler cap...or makes the engine oil look like chocolate milk.) or oil gets into the coolant (makes your coolant have an oil slick on top) It can also cause water to get into the combustion chamber and when the engine is running - blast the combustion back into the coolant (causes the coolant overflow to overflow or spray) or oil gets into the combustion chamber causing the plugs to get fouled (dirty). worse case...all the above happens. I hope this helps in figuring this problem out...i really do hope im wrong about a blown headgasket . As even i tremble in fear of it happening to my car. Good Luck!
