Bit of milky substance in rad..

After starting it up and waiting 5 mins then I checked the rad , opened it up and saw white substance just on the opening of the rad. The best I can describe it is 2 drops of milk from an eye-dropper.

Also if I'm doing an oil change , would the factory prelude filter be alright , people tell me that it does it's job .


Update, it was just old coolant

Re: Bit of milky substance in rad..

one thing is for sure, youre safest with OEM Honda oil filters (fresh ones with every oil change of course).

theres a thread around here saying S2000 oil filters work on Preludes, should check that out.

Oil in your coolant makes your entire coolant/oil look like chocolate milk. Not a drop or two of regular milk in your coolant.
