Honda Civic collant specs


#1

I have a 2003 Honda civic, and my coolant has leaked out rather quickly. (within 30 minutes of being parked) I am taking it in tomorrow, but was going to fill the coolant reservoir before leaving but cannot find anything on what to use… Any suggestions?


#2

fill the actual radiator, not just the reservoir. 50/50 coolant/water. You can pick it up premixed for convenience, then just pour away.


#3

As noted you need to fill the radiator not the overflow tank. How far are your going to drive? If not too far you should be fine with just adding water.


#4

its just over 2 miles. i drove it this morning. The mechanic said it looks like my radiator itself is leaking… What could have caused this?


#5

Several things could have caused this…

Corrosion (how often do you change your fluid??).

A rock could easily cause this.
