Q: Car overheated and hose ripped

asked by on

My car overheated and a hose ripped.

hi. If you have a hose that has failed, then that would have caused a serious loss of coolant. This will definitely cause the engine to overheat. The hose needs to be replaced so that the engine can be checked to see if there is further damage. A mechanic would typically then do a block test because this engine is known for having head gasket problems when it gets hot. If it fails the block test, then the top end of the engine will need to be rebuilt. I would recommend having a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, do a deeper inspection on your overheating Honda.
