Connecting Pipe?

Hey all,

I've got a 1993 4th gen Si VTEC manual trans with 240K miles on the engine. A week ago, I came outside and found a large puddle of coolant coming from under the car after it being off for about an hour.

I jacked it up, started it up and noticed coolant dripping from around the left end of the connecting pipe. I still wasn't sure were the leak was coming from so I took it to a local indie shop for them to look at it.

They confirmed a hole in the connecting pipe, but said they were having a hard time finding a replacement pipe. My ride has been at the shop sitting for the past week because neither of us can find the pipe.

I've got a few questions:

1. Any idea where I can order a new connecting pipe and gaskets, parts #19505-P13-000 and 91314-PR7-A00?

2. Is the connecting pipe on the H22A1 the same as the one used on the 5th gen's H22A4? If so, do you think if I find one at a junkyard (nobody online seems to have one), it would be a reliable replacement?

3. After I disconnect the thermostat housing, the hose to the oil cooler and the heater outlet hose, can the other end of the connecting pipe be simply pulled away from the engine? All diagrams that I've looked at don't show if it's anything holding it in place. Thanks in advance.

Stylez

Re: Connecting Pipe?

Yes it can be pulled out of the engine. Then pushed back in. Not easy but it can be done.
They are certain the pipe is the leak? Not the gasket at the engine block?

If so contact a welder to see if they can patch it for you.


Oh, and here is a national junkyard parts search feature.

Best of luck.

Re: Connecting Pipe?

Thanks for the info bykfixer.

Yeah, they're certain. Just spoke with the shop this morning and their supplier says the pipe is finally off backlog, but will still take another week to arrive.

Thanks for the links, but still no luck. I guess I'll have to wait for the pipe to come in next week.

Re: Connecting Pipe?

Realizing waiting is a drag, it sounds like you'll be getting a new one.

Great to hear.

I asked if they had confirmed it was the pipe because yours is not the only one I'd heard of and I'm thinking "hmmmm, maybe next time an H22 car is at my junkyard that pipe will DEFINITELY be on a list of parts to grab".

Re: Connecting Pipe?

Yeah, waiting sucks. Thanks. With a new one, I shouldn't have anymore issues with this pipe for another 240k miles (lol)!

Wow, I googled this problem and found results from other forums, but nothing said anything about an actual hole/crack in the pipe. Most suggested it was a faulty water pump or thermostat. Definitely add it to your parts list though.
