Question about Honda Cars & Trucks
Definitely would check the water pump first. Was it replaced with the service?

Testimonial: "Turns out it was the distributor cap gasket for the oil leak, and the lower "heat exchange?" hose for the radiator for the fluid. It was cracked. Oh well."
Hard to say, Could be a leaking water pump seal or expansion plug . hook up a radiator tester and pump to the pressure on the radiator cap and check the location of the leak.19 years

Testimonial: "Thanks, they did a radiator fluid change, and now they tell me it's a broken hose. Coincidence? Would they pressurize the radiator once the fluid is out to look for leaks?"

There are two slots in the valve cover right by the cam shaft sprocket that have to be honda bonded or black rtv. look closely at the valve cover right above the gasket underneath the timing belt cover. Hope that helps.

Water in combustion chamber makes white smoke--suspect that the head gasket is leaking water into the chamber. If oil leaking around turbo, it may have a bad bearing and bad oil seal. Check waste gate valve and control.

If your antifreeze is leaking into your engine oil, it will destroy the engine quickly. Check the level of both. But...you need to get a pressure gauge on it to apply pressure to the cooling system to see where the coolant is going first. White smoke is a sign of coolant in the engine oil.

have you had the undercarriage inspected for white stains from coolant, rust stains if your system is corroded? How many miles? has the water pump ever been replaced, that would be my guess, water pumps leak while the eng is running and the hot engine evaporates the coolant, so in many cases none on the ground. Also have the system pressure tested by a shop and put on a rack to check for signs of leaking under the car.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your answer. I have not changed the water pump since I bought the car 5 yrs ago. I will check that."
probably your lower rad hose. shine a flashlight around underneath and see if you see it reflecting off of a liquid trail, that will tell you where the leak is coming from. you can also get leak tracer to add to your coolant that will leave a more visible sign.
