I only found 2 also (I was looking at where the hoses went into the fire wall).

Cresap: The hoses near the radiator in front of the block (upper and lower) are different than the ones we are talking about behind the block running into the firewall.

Wow, unexpectedly I had a coolant leakage from the radiator. I found out by using a cooling system pressure tester (the one styles mentioned) at my uncle's autoshop. I replaced the radiator and my problem was fixed!

Here were my symptoms:

1. Temp gauge hotter than normal amount when stopped.
2. Coolant leaking onto floor when stopped. (If left overnight, it leaked A LOT)
3. Would not leak any fluid when driving car on road or highway.

My coolant/overheating problem appears to have been fixed, at least for the time being. I had all the symptoms - rising and falling temp gauge, cold air coming out, I also had a very noticeable leak somewhere.

Last sunday I replaced the thermostat and changed/bled the coolant. The next morning was great - the Legend behaved like a normal car again (the first time since I've owned it). The car warmed up a lot faster, the heat came on much faster, and I haven't noticed a loss of coolant or anything bad yet. I'm not saying the problem is gone forever, but its made me very hopeful. Although I'm pretty sure I have a bad water pump, which is probably where the leak is. I'll replace it if theres anymore trouble. I'm still wondering if it was a bad thermostat, or maybe the bleeding was just a temporary fix and the air was the problem.

Angry Coolant blowing out overflow

Well, I thought I found my problem a couple of months ago when I found the bad radiator cap(gasket was ripped).

But wife called me yesterday and said car started surging again while she was warming it up. Well, when I got home, sure enough, coolant was low again and overflow was empty and showed signs of coolant all over and around the overflow.

Car has never overheated. TB, WP was done at around 90K, and the car now has 110K. I know where this is headed, and I really dont want to invest big money is the car, but the wife enjoys the car, and she does NOT want a car payment.

So..... does everyone pretty much agree that I am heading down the path of the dreaded HG

Since it seems to be a slow seepage, what is the best way to verify the problem?

Can anyone recommend a quailified technician in NorthWest NJ.... Morris County area? I work at a Saturn Dealer, but I want someone who knows their way around this motor to work on it.

Thanks in advance

Troy

Me and some of us had or is having the same problem energy. So far I've spent hundreds trying to trobleshoot my cooling problems (new water pump, new sensors, new radiator, new radiator cap, new thermostat) and still didnt do a damn thing... If you are the lucky ones that just needs to replace a radiator cap pfffff... you're lucky... but most of the posts i read in different threads seem to lead to a blown Head Gasket(s) ($1000+ repair job). Do a search on head gaskets and read the horror stories... As of now mine is getting worked on...

Check for the symtoms:
Heavy white smoke (steamy smell)
Check dipstick and under oil cap for milky looking oil
Check coolant tank for oil
Check leakage on the mating surfaces between head and block for oil/coolant.

sound like your heater hose(s) blew... replace all 3 hoses

importgirl - A Haynes manual would be the best instead of asking in forums. They like $20 and got great pics! Haynes Integra & Legend not chilton's
