89

1989 Honda Accord

I recently received a 89 honda accord with 200000 miles took it to get emissions. Under the passenger headlight it started to leak water or coolent I was wondering if this could be from the resevoir or something else. Also the car runs hot when idle but when moving there are no problems. I was told to replace the thermostat and then if that does not fix the problem move to the water pump what is the best plan of attack?

Does the cooling fan come on when it gets hot?If not I would start there. Should have a thermo switch in the bottom of the radiator that turns the fan on at a certain temp.
