My honda is overheating. I just replaced the thermostat but it still overheats even when I turn the heater on. Before I go spend 2 or 300 bucks on the water pump and timing belt what else could be the cause? The water seems to evaporate after about an hour of driving.
Do you

Sounds like you have a coolant leak somewhere if it disappears.

Have a coolant pressure test done.

Thanks, I noticed water leaking from a hose coming out of the side of the engine. Not sure if you got a honda but its a skinny hose that crosses under/over the bottom radiator hose and connect to the engine just under the distributor. Any idea what hose that is?
