COOLENT IN THE HEADER

1989 Honda CRX

Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Honda CRX 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 120000 miles

I just did a rebuild on my D16A6 engine and I got a used head to put on it. I put it all back together and it started up, but now im getting coolent in my header pipe. I put all new gaskets and torqued everything to spec and I can't figure out the problem. What could it be?

Hi roop,

Was the used head pressure tested for cracks? Seems you have a problem with leakages and a pressure test is necessary to find the source of the leak.
