Does the drain plug have threads on it, it isn't broken? Clean the threads. If the hole in the radiator has threads, use a thread chaser to clean the threads.
I can't see anything from here, I don't even know your year--make--model?
You can change your coolant sensor in a very easy step.
1) Your coolant sensor probably is sumerge into the coolant, therefore if you unplug it your coolant will leak. so drain your coolant first and make sure use a clean bucket to collect it to avoid contamination.
2) There should be a drain plug @ the bottom of the radiator, if not you can simply remove the lower coolant hose
3) Use an appropriate socket or range, domestic use standard and japanese use metric.
4) remove the plug and install a new one. Becareful not to force it, make sure your rance is fully engage on to the socket. Put some anti-seize lubricant on the thread of the new sensor and install but do not over torque, torque figure can be found in manuals or just simply measures the diameter and thread per inch of the nut, material of the sensor then go on line to find the appropriate torque figure.
hey, i just flushed out my coolant system a month ago. it is located (if you face the front of the car) on the bottom right. it will drain straight down to the ground and you have to unscrew it from the back of the radiator. it is covered by a pastic piece and sits right on the radiator frame. hope that helps some!!
Exactly what maintenance did you perform 3 weeks ago? There should be a drain at the bottom of the radiator and also on the engine block. The coolant should be drained at both points, refilled with water, drained again. I would do this several times to flush all the detergent out. The exact location of these drains can be found in a repair manual for your Honda. You can also get info @ eautorepair (there is a charge, but I think the site provides lots of valuable info) If you have the owners manual, it should contain some of this info. After the system is flushed out thoroughly, refill w/ 50% coolant, 50% water. good luck! countrycurt0
