Engine Cooling problem
1995 Honda Civic 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 270, 00 miles
Last night as I was driving home, my car began to overheat and this QUICKLY escalated to the meter going into the "red zone" and steam pouring out. Replaced water in radiator and bought new radiator cap. Everything was FINE for the 30 mile drive home. No leaks at all. Drove 40 miles this morning, everything was fine. Suddenly when I parked, water/antifreeze was profusely dripping from under the car. Replaced water and drove home again. Only to have to put more water in the radiator after 35ish miles. When I finally returned home, the car is no longer leaking. Refilled radiator completely and drove 10 miles, came back home, and NO LEAKS at all. I have absolutely no clue what is wrong! Someone suggested this may be the water pump, but we are just not sure at all. What do you think this is? And what would be the cost of replacing the seal in the water pump?
have the same problem?
