An intriguingly sad question

Today, I went to get gas, and the prelude has been running pretty well, i slapped that skunk2 cam seal on, stopped my leak, and i even got 5 quarts, a better oil filter and a gasket for the pan and some honda bond, i was set, goodbye oil leaks, welcome to just driving! Unfortunately, the prelude had other ideas :blackeye: after getting some gas, i was pulling in, thinking "hey, I'll leave it out and clean out the garage for my dad, but hmmm, is it still leaking?" thank GOD this didnt hapen on the driveway! the car woulda been off to victory autowreckers faster than you can say BB6!

Anyway, i was listening to some cd my friend gave me and i hear a like grind/pop and i go, hmm thats weird, i turned off the radio and pull it in on the rug to protect the floors from leaks, i lok under the car an.. :piss:

IT WAS TAKING A PISS!

**** **** **** what to do what to do?!
got my dad on the phone imediately and asked him what to do, he told em to get somethin to collect it with so we could see what it is,

right. go get something, ofcourse EVERYTHING is full of oil because im to lazy to go take the old oil in, ****, YES A FRISBEE! right so i go get the frisbee and collect some until it stufs, alright sweet, now ive got a plate of green ****, NOOO ITS COOLANT!!!!
so its leaking to the left of the engine above the transmission? :scratcheshead: wtf? so i go in the bay, i check the hoses i replaced thinkin hmm, maybe i got the wrong ones and they blew? nope.

heres your sparknotes version kiddos:
-wet transmission
-radiator hoses in place
-FITV and IACV hoses in place
-Coolant reserve hose in place
- LOTS of coolant leakage
- Temp seemed fine
-A frustrated 16 year old and a STUPId BB6!

please help :cry: ill take pictures if you need them, are there coolant lines above the trany? possible blown gasket or seal?

So how was your temperature needle? was it rising to H?

...you could have a leak at a heater hose, or a coolant bypass hose(tiny hose)?

im blind.

When my coolant bypass hoses blew, it was a tiny crack and it sprayed coolant allover, into the engine...usually, your temp gauge will shoot up b/c of the loss. Sure it's not coming from the water pump side?

if your looking at the front of the car, its the left side, above the transmission its so confusing, and everythings so hot i catn check

i want it to cool down so i can open the radiator cap up and see how much coolant i lost before i realized what happened.

the coolants suplashed on some sensor, hope i didnt fry that :sad:

well you have a radiator hose and thermostat housing in that spot. and there is a metal tube that runs from the housing to the back of the block just before going into the water pumps. when it cools off grab the housing and see if it is loose or anything.

there is also a line that goes into the intake mani. right after the housing also. there are alot of lines over there
