Trying to identify a leak.

Asked by Mar 19, 2015 at 06:01 PM about the 1988 Honda Prelude 2 Dr Si Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a leak and with no previous car experience, I am unable to identify where from.
Sitting in idle the rpms will randomly shoot, and the car seems to be over heating. I put
water into the radiator  and it leaks almost right out, but not by the radiator, rather it leaks
out by the top of the engine and what could be the axel.
