Okay its like wen I make a few stops you know a cuople of erands and I get home and turn off the key I hear wut I'm guessing is the coolant bubble-ing or gargling thru the engine. I don't see any fluid coming from the water pump when I get out and pop the hood I see a lil steam coming from the resevore tank and coolent leaks from the bottom but I can't find exactly were its dripping from. And I keep all oil and coolent up on the civic but don't know what it it is. First I thought maybe I added to much coolent but this never happen to any of my other cars. What could this problem be and how could I fix it? Please help thanks

Hi civicsix,

When engine is cold, check coolant level in radiator. If it is low and reserve tank as well, the radiator cap is bad.

If radiator coolant level is low but reserve tank is high, either cap is bad or gasket is blown.
