Hello, I have a 94 honda del sol si. I noticed a constant coolant dripping from the timing belt cover while doing an oil change. Car never overheated before. Can you help me please.

Hi djchaz75,

Coolant leaks from the timing belt area is due to a failing water pump. Overheating would not occur unless the coolant level has dropped.

You need to get the water pump replaced asap to avoid damaging the engine when the leaks causes the coolant level to drop resulting in overheating.
