Customer Question
My 2001 honda accord...

My 2001 honda accord takes in water, temp. rising, rough idle and does not leak at all. about a gallon of water every 6 to 8 weeks. Where does the water go? and cools when moving forward.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the rough idle intermittent or consistent?

Consistent

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

Change distributor,fan switch and alternator

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

bought car 2plus years ago, recently did head gaskets previous to purchase. 6 months later, started overheating, never steamed over, got off traffic to keep moving and temp lowered, always bad idle, seems to idle better after adding water. doesnt look like water is moving. strange is where is water going. besides it runs good, power,etc.

Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. I am assuming the temperature is rising due to low coolant in the system. When you fill the system back up with coolant, does the engine continue to overheat? Or, does it start overheating again a few weeks later when the system gets low again?

So you haven't found any external leaks? You don't smell antifreeze burning from the engine?

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

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

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
