Welcome to just answer.com. I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal.

Let's just verified that there's no combustion leaking into the cooling system . Go to the parts store and purchase a chemical head gasket test kit . This will detect any hydrocarbons that are located in the cooling system . This way we can be sure that there's no problem with the head gasket the cylinder head or the cylinder block

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
