  • The Honda coolant is 50/50 prediluted, non-silicate/non-borate, type 2 ethylene glycol based coolant (I know this because I just snagged a bottle out of my basement and copied that off the back label, shown below).

    We offer a wide selection of genuine Honda Coolant Reservoir, engineered specifically to restore factory performance. You can limit the results to the actual Coolant Reservoir that fits your vehicle.

  • The manual rather unhelpfully says "use Honda coolant", but doesn't tell me what that is. Google doesn't either, but tells me that it is either blue or green depending on whether it is "type 1" or "type 2".

    Hello Eric:

    First of all, I would like to say,"Thank you", for the tip you provided on Youtube for fixing a stripped out oil pain. You provided me with a $1.20 solution for a $350.00 plus problem.

    My question relates to the posted topic of flushing and filling a Honda Civic. I'm the proud owner of a 94 Civic VX with 234,000 miles on the odometer and I would like to do complete flush and fill. The question is whether it's okay to use a garden hose to flush out the cooling system, or if it would be best to use distilled water instead. The current argument provide on another tech site is that tap water from the garden hose can leave corrosive sediments...your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

    I've only owned the car for about six months, whereas I've no idea if this service been done before. This is really for my own piece of mind, plus I already have a gallon of genuine Honda coolant.

    Honestly genuine Honda coolant for that engine would be a waste of money in my opinion, it's only later models with the ultra low silicate formula where it really matters in my opinion. Contamination would be either from sediment or oil contamination so if it's full of rust or debris or looks like a chocolate milk shake then it would require flushing but if it's just old green coolant a drain and refill should be fine.
    Stay dirty

    Always use []. This coolant is pre-mixed with 50 percent antifreeze and 50 percent water. It does not require any additional mixing. If it is not available, you may use another major-brand non-silicate coolant as a temporary replacement. Make sure it is a high-quality coolant recommended for aluminum engines. However, continued use of any non- Honda coolant can result in corrosion, causing the cooling system to malfunction or fail. Have the cooling system flushed and refilled with Honda antifreeze/ coolant as soon as possible.
