Mechanic Help! Radiator / Engine Rev Problems!

Hello,

Recently tried to take out intake, had trouble so we tried to put everything back together. I believe the hoses were plug back correctly, but I have issues now.

1)Radiator fluid is leaking. Don't believe it is the radiator, any idea if it's a specific loose/broken hose? 1st pic shows the hose on the left has been replaced (dont believe it is that one), and 2nd pics shows it leaking on bottom (driver side).

2)My car is revving from 1000-2000 rpm, and its revving pretty hard. Tried to set the rev a bit lower but it still did the same thing.

Please help. Thanks!!!

Woah! That's some leak!

All Gen. Prelude Service Manuals
^^ this
Has all the proper locations for hoses. Some are hard to see. A flexible flashlight and small telescoping mirror are handy.
Check to ensure those small hoses are all the way on the throttle control items fittings and the ends have not split.

High rev could be a number of things. Also check the manual for possible causes.

Good luck.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
