>>724084805 If you're not getting any heat, its either the thermostat or the heater core. Check for wet spots on the passenger side floor. If so thats the heater core. Otherwise i wanna say thermostat. Cheap and easy fix.,
>>724085239 >>724084805 Although, if youre putting straight water in. its probably just boiling up and evaporating. Try a 50/50 of coolant/water and you should be okay IF its one of the previous issues i mentioned. Otherwise i can only think of a blown radiator (leak) or a blown headgasket
Surprising anon was not a faggot today, its very likely your thermostat but that doesn't explain adding more and more water. The thermostat stays closed to allow the car to warm up quicker, then opens and flows through the radiator and heater core which would explain both of those issues. If you are having to continually add water it may also have a leak or be burning coolant. If you have white smoke, it is burning the coolant, likely from a warped head gasket due to the over-heating (with thermostat being the original issue). When you say water, make sure you are adding 50% coolant and 50% water, you will have issues on just water.
Okay first off don't add water. Just buy some 50/50 mix.
Second, if you have to keep adding it you probably have a leak. If you are 100% sure you don't have a leak you need to bleed the cooling system, air bubbles will prevent coolant from getting where it needs to go, IE the heater core. Which may or may not explain why you don't have heat.
Without any additional info I can't help you that much. Just take it to a mechanic. If you can't afford a mechanic pick up a Chilton manual for your car and learn how to work on it.
See if there is a damaged hose first, if not check radiator. If thats not it, check thermostat, then water pump. Work your way down. If there is no visible location it's probably a blown gasket and evaporating before it puddles up
>>724086572 Confirm you have spark and air. If you do continue on to fuel pressure, after checking the filters you can get to easily. After all that pull the tank or if you can, pull the pump from under the rear seat/ trunk. Dunno if Honda has that though.
>>724085749 Also thermostat isn't too hard to replace but you will need to drain the coolant. If it's not that then its the water pump. Also lookup how to burp the system https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XoQqWAZ0mLI
diesel mechanic here. Check your radiator for leaks, check to see if your water pump is leaking. if not. check your oil does it looks watery like 2 fluids are mixed? if not them change your thermostat forsure, if nothing else change your water pump. make sure the coolant system is sealed up good. do you have your cap on tight? its a pressurized system so it needs to be sealed up gf for attention. haha
>>724086572 Take off one of the spark plug wires and hold it to the engine block as someone cranks it to make sure they are getting spark. It won't hurt anything. If not it's likely the fuel pump. Things like injectors, compression, clogged fuel filter should still allow the engine to crank over even if shittily. I am assuming you have jump started it to make sure the battery isn't crap, have had cars that would crank but not actually start due to bad battery.
>>724086403 If you have a leak you cannot find by just having the car running and looking around under the hood for perhaps rust spotting or whatever coolant color yours has, probably yellow. But it has a leak which needs to be addressed first, furthermore if you have no heat and your temperature gauge is reading cold then you know that the thermostat is one to look at if you want heat, but be aware that if indeed your thermostat is stuck open, then pressure will be increased and you may have a better chance of finding the leak. If not then get a coolant safe UV dye to put in the coolant and get a UV light to find the leak. If that doesn't help, look towards the headgasket, Take out the plugs and look at how clean they are, odds are the cleanest is the problem area where water is effectively steam cleaning the cylinder. Although you would probably notice white smoke coming out of your tailpipe with the hint of burnt coolant
Op, does your car run like shit? Aside from overheating and no heat, the surefire symptoms of a head gasket is fouled plugs, watery oil, or oily coolant along with rough running and worse gas mileage. It may also throw several codes related to misfires/o2 sensors. If you remove the thermostat/warm up the coolant without allowing it to pressurize, you can look for bubbles coming to the surface of your coolant which would be compression leaking into your coolant system. Water pump may result in excessive noise, and visible leaks. Make sure your belts are good and tight, as well as in good condition. It is most likely not, but the thermostat can be removed completely and either tested by boiling in a pot of water or simply replaced for 5-15 bucks. Complete deletion will not damage the vehicle either, you can acheive a cooler running engine through this method as well as rule out that as a possible issue. Also, any other visible leaks can be the root cause.
Everyone please stop commenting, all good info is here already, don't want to fuck up his fixing journey. It is overheating AND the heater isn't working so unless there is a gigantor fucking leak spewing shit everywhere, it is the thermostat or water pump.
