Is it typical for the top seal of original radiator in a '91 Integra to begin to fail @ 23 years of use ?
It is loosing radiator fluid about 8 oz ( .250 L) every 2-3 days but not
much more than that afterwards (slowly looses more but not drastically)
No obvious drips/puddles or leaks underneath after driving .
I noticed the Top seam around the radiator top is wetted with radiator
fluid. It is original radiator and appears to be constructed with folded
tabs holding the top on radiator. I am supposing that there is a rubber
seal in the seam and is probably failing ??
No chance of successfully fixing that ?
So, if radiator is replaced what other work and replacement should be done
at that same time since it looks like alot of stuff, hoses and such must be
Thanks for any helpful advise,
is alt.autos.acura not used anymore ? looks like low traffic ? where
have all the Acura-ians been displaced/moved to ?
