Engine Cooling problem
2004 Honda Del Sol 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 136000 miles
Hi, My 94 Civic Del Sol has been overheating during regular day to day driving (ie. In traffic, driving arround town, at red lights.) I added more coolant to the radiator to replace the lost coolant and each time I drive coolant leaks out from underneath the cap, I looked at the radiator cap and the rubber sealer looks to be in good condition. At the neck of the radiator right below where the cap screws in there is a small recession that looks almost like a piece of an o ring is missing but then there is a small hole that looks as if it goes to the line that feeds into the top of the resovoir. So im not sure if a sealer is missing or not. I let the engine run for a bit and the coolant defnitely leaks from under the radiator cap. I've heard a couple of different theories about what it might be. It could be that I just needed to bleed the coolant properly, Ive also heard that it could also be that my head gasket needs to be replaced. Or is it that I just need a new radiator cap and or radiator? I got a new Radiator cap to replace the old one that was broken and the same fluid leaked from underneath on the way home.
have the same problem?
