In my 1990 integra my car was running hot a few weekes ago so I removed the thermostat. I'm not sure if it was bad or not but I let the car run without a thermostat for about 3 weeks. Ever since the thermostat was out the car started leaking coolant. Sometimes so bad that the radiator would be completely dry after 20 miles and the car would come close to overheating so I would turn it off. Sometimes it wouldn't leak at all. I put a bottle of stop leak in and it worked for about 4 days then started leaking again. I put a new thermostat in last night and the car still leakes. Im not positive where the leak is coming from but it looks like it might be near the engine or from the engine. The puddle is on the passenger side close to the tire. It looks like it's coming from near the lower radiator hose where it's connected to the thermostat but both the hose and the housing are dry so it can't be either of those. The leak streams down right below where the upper hose connects to the engine and hits the ground from there. Any ideas where the leak is coming from or what I can do to fix it? Thanks
have the same problem?
